The Engine Inn at Walbottle is a newly refurbished pub and kitchen located on Hexham Road serving a fine selection of beers, wines & spirits, as well as a brand new menu, offering top quality meals made freshly on site from local produce. Situated at the rear of the building we have a new, large outdoor seating area and car park. Our private function room offers space for events such as birthdays, christenings and funerals.

Here at The Engine, we aim to provide each and every one of our guests with an experience that they won't be disappointed in, with a relaxed, country pub ambiance. Dine in our open, spacious restaurant from 12 noon until 9pm, or enjoy a drink from 11am until 10:30pm. Your four legged furry friends are welcome in the bar and outdoor area.

BT sport is shown live on the big screens, as well as the occasional live music performance, entertainment nights, and quiz nights held weekly. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for latest updates, menu changes and upcoming events.

The Engine is located off the A69 and is a short taxi journey from the Newcastle city centre. We hope to see you soon!.

Went for a Sunday lunch and was the best sunday dinner i’ve ever had. The staff was lovely and very accommodating, they fit us in even tho it was fully booked. Would highly recommend and will be returning.

Went in late afternoon, and the place was still busy, but there was no shortage of food choice. Top service with a great atmosphere and football on the TV with no sound, so it didn't interfere with general conversation. Top class food, too, at reasonable prices, will definitely be returning for more delights.

Lovely time at the Engine Inn. Great service very quick. Lots of staff looking busy and serving customers. 3 opted for the roast dinner. Meat quality was very good and lots of it. Veg on the plate was tasty and we had 2 sides of greens that were really good too. 1 had a burger and said it was delicious with a flame grilled taste. Overall really good experience.
