I was travalling to keilder with my yound daughter who had a water infection and was deparate for the loo. While she used the toilet I had to buy us both drinks as recommended by the locals for use of the loo. Cost £3.50. Nuff said on that pub I think.

We have stayed at The Gunn Inn on numerous occassions and have always been made to feel part of the family. As well as being a pub with restaurant and accommodation, it is also a family home.
We always have the large family bedroom which has TV for the kids and tea and coffee making facilities and is very comfortable.
The Inn is st is such a beautifully rural position that when Liz serves you a traditional English breakfast, you look out of the picture window in the dining room and fell elavated over the gorgeous scenery.
We always feel that the pub is the centre of lots if interesting places to visit. Drive one way and Shop at the Metro in Gates head or Multiplex cinema for children or drive up toward Scotland to the beautiful town of Jedburgh. Where cafes serve an amazing Steak and Ale pie. We have had days out at the Kielder Dam and a large stone Maze. We have evn driven across to Carlisle.
Liz and Micks will always give you direction to what is currently the most interesting place locally to visit , We often get back to the pub exhausted and eat a meal from the large choice that Liz has on the menu. She will always try to accommodate. Once the chilren are in bed it is great to have a night cap and have a chat with the people from the village.
My sons are of a similar age to Lizs and have spent many happy times exploring together.
We have already rang and booked for ourselves to visit The Gunn Inn in 2010, whilst our sons are at summer camp. I am counting the weeks down to what we know will be a smashing break for us.

We stayed two nights at the Gun Inn. Liz, Mike and family made us really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Our bedroom was clean, bright and comfortable. Excellent food (nothing fancy, but then neither are the prices), with a stunning view across beautiful, wild Northumbria from the restaurant. The pub section has a friendly, happy atmosphere and there's a good selection of beer and malt whisky.
The Gun Inn is a short drive from Hadrian's Wall, which is a must-see. We also went to Alnwick, where the Castle Gardens are stunning. Two days wasn't enough to explore the lovely towns and villages in the area, so we'll be back to the Gun Inn soon, with friends.
