“Fantastic addition to Northumberland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2012

What an outstanding hotel ! The food is out of this world , the service was fantastic and the room we stayed in was like a five star hotel . What a change from the B&Bs we would normally stay when come and visit family in our favorite Northumberland town . 10/10

Had heard all about the Sunday Carvery at this new establishment .
Very good food - helpful, friendly staff , lovely selection of meats & fresh vegetables . Well worth a visit & will definately return . I did hear somebody querying the price of soft drinks which appeared very expensive however tap water free !!!

Stayed here recently overnight and was very impressed by service, spacious rooms, and quality food. This new hotel is very well appointed and situated on the outskirts of the historic town of Alnwick and within easy reach of the beautiful Northumberland coast.

We recently had a family meal, eight people, at the Hogs Head Inn and with it being a Friday evening the restaurant was exceptionaly busy, however the quality of the food and service was excellent. The staff are very friendly and their attention to detail is very impressive. We will certainly re-visit the hotel

We saw this hotel on the net and were a bit worried after phoning reservations to be told it had only just opened, but everything turned out fine. It's not luxurious, but all is clean and tidy and decorated to a good standard. The breakfast is tasty and hot and presented well. Only a couple of miles outside the centre of Alnwick and only a stones throw off the A1, it's very handy as a base.

We stayed at this hotel on a weekend in august just a couple of weeks after opening. When I rang to book room was booked into 2 rooms they were joined and these were really nice. A nice touch was the hotel rang on the day to confirm we were coming and asked how we wanted the rooms set up which I thought was a really nice touch. The rooms are new so are clean and comfortable, they have tea and coffe plus bathroom has shower gel. there is a restaurant downstairs which we used for breakfast and dinner on second night and was really good. there is a service station next door if you need any extras. The only problem we had was it wasnt signposted very well but hopefully that may be sorted soon as if you miss turn off you end up back on a1 and have to drive a long way to get off the a1 again. We had a great weekend staff are really nice and will hopefully return soon.

Me and my family stayed at The Hog's Head Inn for a weekend earlier this month.

I have to say we were very impressed. The venue is absolutely lovely and the staff made us feel very welcome.

We had adjoining rooms which were really convenient with having two children with us. They were more than comfortable, very clean and had everything that you would need for a weekend trip.

The food was very nice, we had an evening meal, breakfast and a carvery while staying at the venue and we were very impressed with every meal we had. We also took friends and family up the weekend after for a carvery as it was that nice!

The venue is also very close to Alnwick Castle & Gardens, so is really convenient for families looking for fun trips out.

Overall, I'd highly recommend.
