Ratcliffe Road, HAYDON BRIDGE, Hexham, NE47 6ER
Built in the 1760s, this riverside inn is named after a 19th-century British Army officer. The restaurant, in a converted stone barn, is a favourite with local showbusiness personalities. The real ales are all sourced from a 30-mile radius: Mordue Workie Ticket and Nel's Best are but two. Owner and chef Gary Thompson makes everything by hand, including the bread and ice cream. Local ingredients are the foundation of his dishes, which include Cullen skink; chicken, ham and leek pie; and bread and butter pudding with apricot compôte. In summer, the patio area is covered by a marquee.
