Very very dated inside, has not been decorate since the 80's. The pub was in near complete silence apart from two ladies behind the bar talking, no music or atmosphere leaving our group feeling they needed to whisper. Drink order came wrong even though we...More

Following a good walk on Hadrian’s Wall we jumped on the AD122 bus at Housesteads and walked off it straight into the Milestone Inn. It’s a small pub on the corner of the Roman Road down into Haltwhistle, with views of the wall at Cawfield...More

There are tables by the main road but you are a bit exposed. Otherwise there is a garden round the side of the pub on the side road. And there are one or two benches in front of the entrance to the pub.

A traditional family run country pub serving home cooked food and a selection of real ales, beers, wines and spirits. Booking are recommended during the busy summer season. Sorry but we are unable to allow dogs inside the pub however, dogs are very welcome in the beer garden.
