Description: A contemporary update of the great British pub in a stunning, grade II listed building in the heart of the historic market town of Hexham, Northumberland. We specialise in doing things right-entirely homemade food, both classics & seasonal creations, beautifully kept local cask ales, artisan coffee, friendly service, roaring log-burners & pretty much anything else you would want from a great local, independent pub.

You would think with a name like this and being in a market town this would be a great market town pub. No, limited food, only one real ale available and tatty inside. I think most people who came in were locals. Perhaps look into its history and put up some tasteful info...obviously not bothered about attracting tourists.

The menu was very limited and so was the choice of beer. There was also not much in the way of atmosphere.

The food was quite nice though and reasonably priced.

We stopped off in Hexham en route from Edinburgh to County Durham and had a meal/drinks in this place. The staff were so warm and friendly. The food was out of this world, presented in a top restaurant way. I'm a dessert fiend and have to say I will have to come back here to sample more of the desserts. I really only have one word for the food - YUM!!!

The only negative is the decor, but they are new people in the pub and that will change over time, I imagine.

We will be back!

We went for Tuesday lunch with our 2 children. From the outside it doesn't look much, but the staff are very friendly and the food is excellent. Large portions and very tasty. For the children they offered to cook more or less anything if they could. They said 'just because it's not on the menu, don't be afraid to ask'. The landlady also brought out a set of dominoes for the children while they waited for their food.
They also give you free tea or coffee when you spend over £5 on food.
