Built in the 1760s, this riverside inn is named after a 19th-century British Army officer and is popular with locals and local celebrities. In a converted stone barn, the restaurant overlooks the river where otters can often be spotted. The real ales are all sourced locally: Cumberland Corby Blonde and Wylam Collingwood are but two. Owner and chef Gary Thompson makes everything by hand and local ingredients are the foundation of his dishes, which include cod with boulangère potatoes, and lamb shank braised in red wine on mash. In summer, the patio area is covered by a marquee.
