Popped into Hexham last Wednesday afternoon in the pouring rain, and rather bedraggled ended up calling into this pub for a quick bite to eat and a drink. The bearded chap on the bar was a tremendous host, the draught stout was a cracking pint,...More

My brother and his family visited this pub and found the staff very welcoming, the food was reasonably priced and very good. The barman gave their dogs a treat. My brother has highly recommended it and look forward to visiting again

A contemporary update of the great British pub in a stunning, grade II listed building in the heart of the historic market town of Hexham, Northumberland. We specialise in doing things right-entirely homemade food, both classics & seasonal creations, beautifully kept local cask ales, artisan coffee, friendly service, roaring log-burners & pretty much anything else you would want from a great local, independent pub.
