Cracking little country local with good beer and friendly staff. Good little place to drop into if you’re cycling in Northumberland and want a nice pint in the sun.

Nice little village pub, friendly service with a decent selection of ales, alcohol free beers and coffee/tea no problem. Recommended.

Quaint little pub in this beautiful Northumberland village. Friendly staff and a good selection of drinks to be had at reasonable prices. It was quiet when we were there, but based on what I saw, it is evident that it has a warm and friendly atmosphere at busier times with local clientele.

A nice local country pub, two average size rooms so not a huge place but worth a visit if you're passing and fancy a quiet drink. Tables outside if the weather's fair, a good village pub that's suitable for anyone.

Great little pub, friendly owners and great local ales! We visit once a year on our yearly trip to Matfen hall and wouldn't dream of missing a drink and a game of pool here!
