House ales, super food (great Sunday roasts) and a wonderful community atmosphere in the middle of the Northumberland National Park

Read guest comments

A super little inn run with an instinctive understanding of its traditions. The stone walls carry old photos of the community: from colliery to smithy, a record of its past. The bars are wonderful: brass beer taps glow, anything wooden has been polished to perfection and the clock above the fire keeps perfect time. The house ales are expertly kept – Timothy Taylor's, Wylam Gold Tankard – and Robin cooks with relish: Kielder cheese soufflé, game and mushroom pie, and their famous slow-roasted Northumbrian lamb, all with colour from a pair of rather productive veg and fruit gardens. As for Sunday lunch, it was once voted one of the best in the North. This is the glorious Northumberland National Park – no traffic jams, no rush. Hire bikes and cycle round the lake, or saddle up on a pony and take to the hills.

"The best inn stay we have ever had. Wonderfully warm and welcoming with delicious food and comfy beds. No-one could ask for more."

"Wonderful place to stay. We had the family room and it suited our needs perfectly. The food was marvellous and the service was friendly and professional in every way. A real gem of a place to stay but also great to dine at if you're passing. Will happily return."
