For spectacular views of the North Sea coast and the Cheviot Hills, head for the Farmer family's creeper-covered, flower-adorned, stone-built pub and restaurant. Phil Farmer also runs Hope House Farm eight miles away, source of the organic beef, lamb and pork that feature on the various menus – 'forest and field', grills and roasts, and Oriental; there's also a seafood selection. A suggested dinner starter of seared West Coast scallops, black pudding, fresh green pea purée, and red wine reduction might be followed by either rack of Hope House Farm lamb with parsnips, petit pois, and redcurrant and pork wine sauce; or roasted sea bass fillet, prawn and crab risotto, and tempura herbs. Real ale drinkers can expect – indeed, should be pleased – to find Bass on the bar, as well as Timothy Taylor Landlord and Black Sheep. The en suite bedrooms are smartly furnished, some retaining original exposed beams.
