Went for a pub meal, food was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly and helpful, music in the background, lovely and not too loud! My only criticism was that we were initially sitting in a spot where there was quite a draft coming from the other room. We moved as soon as we could...and everything was perfect.

Popped in for coffee and beer. Decided to have snack. Sweet potato fries with a lime mayo were fab. Nice decor and lovely welcoming atmosphere. Dog was made welcome. Husband loved the ale - Timothy Taylor - well poured and tasted lovely.

We visited this pub restaurant for an evening meal. It is a pleasant, welcoming environment with a nice family feel to it. The menu is excellent and the food delicious. Definitely worth a visit.

Had a couple of meals here now, decent food, won't disappoint you , steak a little fatty but didn't spoil it and I'm fussy! Tomato a bit tasteless . Cajun chicken very nice. Very good service. Worth a visit.

Very pleasant, modern pub just off Hexham's marketplace. Nice daytime café type vibe. Staff friendly and helpful, food good. Can cope with Coeliacs, but it's not obvious from the menu, just speak to the staff on arrival and they will liaise with the kitchen re. menu adaptations. We'll happily return.

Went to this pub last week because it was dog friendly. The staff are very friendly and welcoming however the food was disappointing to say the least and rather expensive. We had two soups, two portions of chips a water and a coffee and it came to £19. The soup was okish but the chips were not good.

This is an amazing pub, with fabulous food, this was my second visit, due to the first visit being a memorable one for the food and the ambience. It is spotless, and the food is just wonderful. This time was just for lunch, so I had the beef and onion sandwich which was a ciabatta full of beef that just... More

Last night we had the 5 course special "Perfectly Matched" menu here, there was a choice to have it with wines, beers or just the food. The food and service were exceptional, the presentation of the food first class, what a chef he will go far. We have also had a casual lunch here, the home made scotch eggs are... More

We had had trouble finding somewhere to eat with our wee dog in Corbridge and popped into Hexham and found this pub. Really nice place with very nice staff too. The food is great and the menu extensive. It is on the flat for those in wheelchairs - do not know if there is a disabled toilet. We all had... More
