A solid stone-built coaching inn in a picturesque village beside the River Coquet, and just 25 minutes from Newcastle. It was built in the 1820s by Hugh Percy, 3rd Duke of Northumberland, as a place for horses to rest and guests to freshen up before being received at Alnwick Castle. In the bar locals and tourists alike sup pints of Northumbrian brewed beers. The kitchen sources local ingredients, whenever possible, for dishes such as warm mackerel with a Niçoise salad; or ham hock terrine with home-made piccalilli; Northumberland sausage, wholegrain mustard mash, crispy onions and ale gravy; and roasted squash risotto, crispy sage, toasted seeds and truffle oil.
