Thank you very much for taking the time to review Blenkinsopp Castle Inn.

We have been able to source beautiful cod and our batter is made withTheakstons beer.

Our ham joint is from a local butcher and is roasted on our premises.

So it is very gratifying when our customers enjoy our food.

Stopped on the A69 on spec as we'd been looking for a cafe for ages and didn't want to stop at the Little Chef! Nice place, open fire, friendly staff and good food. Will definitely be back.

My husband, grown daughter and I stayed at the Inn for one night on a two-week holiday in November and it was such a great stay that we will definitely return. We arrived on a cold and blustery afternoon and had a lovely coffee and cream tea - the service, atmosphere and the food were all excellent, especially the scones. The rooms at the inn (there are two available and soon to be a third) were well appointed and very cozy. We also really liked the local herbal products for use in the en suite. Dinner in the pub was superb and my husband noted the steak with peppercorn sauce is among the best he's had anywhere. After a very comfortable sleep we enjoyed a full English breakfast, again the food and service were top notch. The castle ruins are good to explore and Hadrian's wall, about a mile away, is a great walk and there is a Roman fort to explore as well. Honestly, we arrived as strangers and left the next day feeling as if we had been given the star treatment by new friends. Many thanks to Carol and Gary and the entire crew at the Blenkinsopp Castle Country Inn.

Our family party of 7 were on holiday in the area and called in for a coffee after a game of golf, we were so impressed with the welcome and service that we went back in the evening for a meal, nothing was too much trouble for the hosts and the food was excellent and reasonably priced. We enjoyed it so much that we went back the following night. Again it was great food and drink and cannot praise the owners and staff enough.
Thank you. John fleming
