Just a few miles off the direct Newcastle to Edinburgh road lies the traditional Northumbrian town of Rothbury. The Turks Head is right in the centre of town, its bar door opening right onto the street. Inside you will find a warm welcome - if you are staying, eating or calling for a decent pint the bar is your first port of call.
We got a warm welcome from staff and customers alike and were quickly shown to a tidy if quirky room in the courtyard at the quiet back of the hotel. We had a small lounge with a kitchen unit, a tiny bedroom with a comfy bed and thick duvet and a really tiny shower room. Everything was neat and clean despite a few knocks and scratches to paint and woodwork.
Dinner is well cooked pub food. On a busy evening do not expect speedy cooking - but your dish will be freshly cooked for you. With good ale on tap there's no hurry anyway!
Breakfast was a choice of well prepared local food - smoked haddock from the North Sea, local butcher sausage and black pudding, fresh eggs.
Our double room came in at less than £50 including the great breakfast. Hard to beat and certainly unbeatable in attractive Rothbury.
Note - there is only on street parking.
