Purpose built, The Hogs Head Inn took its name from the hostelry featured in the Harry Potter books as it is near Alnwick Castle where much filming took place. Ideally located just off the A1 on the edge of Alnwick, it is a good place to stay if visiting the castle and gardens. It offers comfortable, spacious and well-equipped bedrooms, and WiFi is available throughout the property. The bar and restaurant serve tasty dishes in comfortable, informal surroundings. There is outside seating for alfresco dining.
