We stayed in room 7 which was above the hotel...

We arrived at 12:30pm and got checked in straight away. The room was very clean and spacious with a huge bed and had a lovely modern bathroom! We had an evening meal in the restaurant which was delicious! I would definitely recommend the steak pie Thanks for a lovely stay!

My wife and I had been visiting family in the Wark area. We decided to have lunch before returning home and opted for the Black Bull. This was our first visit despite driving through the village many times passing it as we went. We had not booked in advance. The ambience was instantaneous and a warm welcome from the serving...

We stayed here for one night in a beautifully comfortable room, with super-clean bathroom and linens. The food at dinner and breakfast was freshly cooked and very tasty. Staff were really friendly and efficient, though some info as to how to turn on the shower would have been helpful. We've stayed in heaps of hotels but this shower defeated us,...

My mate and I were cycling today from Carlisle to Newcastle, needed lunch after 50 miles so stopped here. Quiet, but blazing fire in the hearth was very welcome sight. Had my first "Pensioner's meal" (I turned 60 last year!) but my younger mate got offered the same. Very tasty, simple meal, well presented and great value. Will be back...

Stayed here for a night enroute to Cragside with the family, two children (8&10). Lovely Pub hotel, friendly welcome on arrival and a nice bar lounge area with roaring fire to warm us after driving through storm Doris to get there.
