Since the 1760s, this part-battlemented, three-storey, former coaching inn on the road to and from Scotland has commanded the picturesque Weldon Bridge over the River Coquet. It belongs to John and Julie Young, whose knick-knacks and curios, pictures and fishing memorabilia are liberally distributed within. On the bar top pump badges declare the availability of Timothy Taylor Landlord, Theakston Best Bitter and Greene King brews. A comprehensive menu suggests, for example, kipper salad – warm Craster kippers, new potatoes, endive and soft poached egg with Caesar dressing, followed by Tournedos Flodden – prime fillet steak and Stilton wrapped in bacon with garlic sauce; or glazed ham hock with vine tomatoes, chunky chips and cheese sauce. The carefully tended half-acre of garden is perfect for outdoor eating and includes a children's play park. It is possible to fish for brown trout, salmon and sea trout on the pub’s own one-mile stretch of the Coquet.
