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 free-range Aberdeen beef and lamb that feature on the various menus; there's also a seafood selection. A suggested dinner starter of crispy tempura shredded pork, black pudding, crispy pancetta, free-range poached egg, and watercress and apple matchstick salad might be followed by either Hope Farm slow-cooked Texel lamb, roasted roots, rosemary potatoes and red wine jus; or king prawn ravioli with chilli, tomato and basil emulsion. Real ale drinkers can expect – indeed, should be pleased – to find Atlantic Hop on the bar, as well as Black Sheep. The en suite bedrooms are smartly furnished, some retaining original exposed beams.
