Tankerville Arms Hotel Wooler
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Wooler
Reviewed 21 August 2011

Called in at the Tankerville Arms for a meal this summer, and found it good value. I had roast pork with three veg, from the specials board: excellent quality meat, tender and flavoursome, and a supremely generous portion - nearly a whole joint, or so it seemed. The potatoes and other veg were simply done and presented unadorned, save for some gravy: nothing fancy, but overall very good value. Some interesting real ales from a local brewery were making a guest appearance at the bar, and the barman was pleasant and attentive; the disarming way he calmly soaked up a lengthy and disjointed monologue from a bar-room bore while working was most impressive. Though I didn't actually stay as a resident here, I can recommend the food on the basis of this meal; however, this restaurant will not cater adequately, I suspect, for those foodies who enjoy anything fancy, continental-style, or dressed up in mysterious and exotic sauces.

We called in here at 12 on a Sunday. Outside the board said "open al day for tea, coffee, and cakes" - unless it would seem when they're serving Sunday lunch. We were initially refused coffee but then the rather curt barman relented. The coffee and cakes were very good, if a bit pricey, but the whole visit was marred by the attitude towards us, as if wanting just a coffee at this time on Sunday was unusual. As a frequent traveller on this road, I shan't be breaking my journey here again!

The Tankerville Arms is perfectly placed to explore the Cheviot Hills to the west and the Northumberland coast to the east, and a more comfortable base you could not wish for!
We were made to feel most welcome at the Tankerville Arms from the moment we arrived until the time we had to leave. All the staff were extremely friendly and always prepared to go that extra mile to ensure our stay was as relaxed and enjoyable as possible.
The menu and quality of cuisine in the restaurant was exceptional and the service first rate.
The traditionally decorated en-suite rooms also were extremely clean and comfortable.
Overall, an excellent hotel in a beautiful area and definitely worth a return trip!

Room Tip: If it's a spacious family room you are after, look no further than Room 8!
