A delightful little pub with accommodation.. which I didn’t sample or sadly the food, but they are just sorting a new menu which sounds scrumptious. They serve local beers including their own, and I sampled the Gorse Flower beer and another very flowery beer on...tap. I also learnt a lot about the colorful local history, which included fairies, witches, and even ghosts... and know I had not drunk too much beer. You’ll certainly be welcomed with open arms and like me will want to return. I just hope on my travels I will find a welcome in more pubs like this. Big plus too in current times by the way, everything including the loos were very clean.. thanks a million for the stories and the beer and I will be backMore

This pub in the quiet village of Elsdon reopened a couple of years ago and now boasts good home cooked food, not to mention the on-site First and Last Brewery for real ales. The bar is very much for the locals and there is a...restaurant if you want somewhere more peacefulMore

Recently refurbished to an extremely high standard, the Bird in the Bush offers excellent cuisine, accommodation and a micro brewery !!! All set in the beautiful Northumberland countryside. An idea stop over for those who like to explore the region on foot. Check out their...website for opening times, as not open every day - Enjoy.More

Lovely meal with family in the Bird. Scallops and black pudding, followed by rib eye steak and homemade lemon ice cream. All perfectly cooked and served. Lovely interior and a really friendly atmosphere

Third time we’ve eaten here. This time Sunday lunch. Fantastic pork belly for me and wife had roast lamb. Good meat and fish dishes on small but varied menu. Really good pub on village green in scenic village. Will keep coming back

We started and finished a walk from the village and called in for a late lunch . We tried the scallops mackerel and Gambas all excellent. The atmosphere was friendly and the landlord very welcoming . There is a micro brewery at the rear, the...beer is served in the pub and we were able visit the brewery and meet the brewers - a very interesting end to our visit. Would definitely recommend a visit here.More

Visited for Saturday dinner. Not busy. A short menu but a good range offered, including one vegetarian at each course. Everything seems to be prepared on-site. Delightful scallops and stunning garlic gambas. Lamb perfectly cooked with a traditional collection of vegetables - a plateful the...way your grandma used to do, except these are properly cooked. Delicate seabass and a wide variety of home made ice-creams. Traditional puddings, including a BAKED cheesecake. Rather restricted range of wines by the glass. Staff (and other customers) very friendly and welcoming.More

Hmm....that’s a bit far back for my memory, only known it in last fifteen years. It has retained most of the original features.
