Open all year

Named after the pub featured in the Harry Potter books, this inn is just minutes from Alnwick Castle, which became Hogwarts in the first two films. Close to Alnwick Garden, the Hogs Head is an ideal base for exploring Northumberland, and food at this family-friendly pub is served all day. North East produce appears throughout the menu – belly pork and black pudding served with peppercorn sauce and crispy crackling; chicken and pancetta tagliatelle in creamy garlic sauce; or chickpea and coriander burger are typical dishes. Save space for treacle sponge and custard, and wash it down with a pint of Hadrian Border Tyneside Blonde.
