Atmospheric country pub. Open fire, real ales, wonderful food. Highly recommended.

Built around 1750 and situated in the picturesque hamlet of Anick, approximately 1 mile from the historic market town of Hexham, the Rat Inn boasts spectacular views across Hexham and the Tyne Valley. A charming and characterful pub with a stunning beer garden and roaring fires to sit by in winter, the Rat Inn is a classic country pub. Phil and Karen took over the pub in late 2007,having previously owned the successful, Michelin rated Green Room restaurant in Hexham. The menu at the Rat Inn offers a quality selection of traditional British dishes with a commitment to source as many local and seasonal ingredients as possible. A separate bar menu offers lighter snacks, washed down with hand pulled ales, or a glass of wine from a carefully chosen list.
