My daughters booked myself and my wife into the Hogs Head for a couple of nights as a birthday present. Like many other reviewers I was initially dismayed on how close to the A1 the hotel was located.
However, this wasn't a problem as we never heard any traffic even though we were facing the car park and quite close to the main road.
As we had a four hour drive we decided to walk into town to stretch our legs which took about 30 mins for us middle aged couple.
The double room was very spacious with a king size bed;WIFI was also available.
The hotel was quiet for a Friday so we ate in the restaurant where we found the menu adequate but not an excessive choice (no specials on this particular day)
The breakfast was a very good self service full English.
On Saturday night the hotel was very busy but we ate out anyway. Breakfast was quite hectic Sunday morning but the staff copped with the influx of people from what appeared to be a wedding party.
The hotel is ideally located for exploring Northumberland. Good food, beer and bed. Couldn't ask for anything more. Staff were courteous and very helpful.
I wouldn't hesitate to stop here again
