This was my first visit to this pub and had to go based on very favourable reviews. I was disappointed. Very traditional pub with basic furnishings but clean with friendly staff and a nice ambience for drinking. It appears to be a very well run...More

Sadly this once-proud local boozer continues its decline under yet another new manager. The barmaid at lunchtime today was incompetent, rude and hostile. The management should consider hiring some staff who possess rudimentary service skills and who are less obviously contemptuous of their customers.

After eating we looked for a bar in Hexham to have a few drinks in and found this place. Great beer and the staff were very friendly and service was quick.

New Management has made it's mark, so nice to see a happy face behind the Bar. Great Real Ale and aslo now does a good Toasted Sandwich, I understand that "Geordie Tapas" are soon going to make an appearance. Brilliant background music to !

Another lovely couple of pints in this friendly local pub. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Did not come all this way from London to be offered" London Pride". Should stick to the local micros. They are excellent.

Solid locals pub that offers no nonsense craft as well as the usual beers. No food apart from snacks that I could tell but it's a good place to sample a geographical variety of ale.

Lovely, friendly atmosphere in a traditional pub whose name relates to the bits and pieces of a beer barrel. Comfortable and welcoming and a nice place to have a quick sit down during a Hexham visit.
