A humdinger of a pub

Facing a small, triangular green in a tiny hamlet of stone cottages, the terraced, tree-shaded garden of this convivial old drovers' inn looks out over the River Tyne as it curves round to the Roman town of Corbridge. Enjoy a glass of High House Farm Nel's Best or Wylam Gold Tankard in the flagstone-floored, beamed bar. The bar itself is fashioned from a great oak sideboard, chamberpots hang from the ceiling and a cast-iron range may blaze away. The daily-changing menu might offer beetroot, goats’ curd, fennel and apple salad and hazelnut; pan-fried whole plaice, samphire and caper butter; or rich beef mince on goose fat toast, watercress and pickled red cabbage.
