As per the title, we have stayed here before. This time was only a 1 night cycling jaunt, but we had another great time and good laugh with the excellent staff. It is an excellent stop off point on the C2C, food is good, beer is good, it's all good!!! People who moan about this place have to take into...

Thanks go out to Anne and her staff for a fabulous night spent here to see a local band. The welcome here is wonderful, very friendly and warm, both from the staff and the regulars. The stay in room 3 was great, and the breakfast was freshly cooked and wholesome. We will be back again for another night.

Visited the pub for lunch when I met my partner here as he was doing some C2C practice in the area. Lovely food. Warm welcome from the bar manager. It has all the charm of an old English pub. Thank you.

We spent a night here after battling through mizzle and mist on our C2C crossing. The welcome was warm and the ambience downstairs quirky. The hotel is obviously used to dealing with hungry cyclists: the food is nothing fancy but plentiful and tasty. The full breakfast next morning more than fuelled us for the climbs ahead. Our room was comfortably...

We stopped by the Allenheads Inn last night to hear some fantastic live music. We were given a warm welcome, the atmosphere was great and the drinks were incredibly reasonably priced. The staff were all wonderful and they even gave a free curry dinner to all the audience which was delicious. Don't normally write reviews but we had such a...

After a hard days cycle across the Pennines, we were very happy to arrive here. This was a charming and quirky little inn set in what felt like the wilderness of the north Pennines. Very friendly and helpful welcome by the barman (whose name we have forgotten). we were immediately shown where we could secure our bikes overnight. The barman...

Such a lovely review. Nice to hear your understanding of just where we are.........in the wilderness! It is a different world up here and we love it as do most of our customers. One or two do go in to mild panic that the Wi-Fi is not in every nook of this very old building. Its a real chill out...

We were doing the C2C cycle route and booked two rooms for one night. Total cost was £156. Neither room had a TV or wardrobe. Rooms had dust on the table and were very small. The Wifi signal was not available in the room. The bathroom had a carpeted floor. The door didn't shut. The light fixture cover was broken...

Well after a run of fantastic reviews this is a sad one to receive. We have both short stay rooms ie one night and rooms that are larger with T.V etc for guest staying longer. If the long stay rooms are available we use them first regardless if it is one night stay or more but Im guessing that whenever...

Ann, felt I should write this as another member of one of the troublesome late arriving parties of three.

Hi Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. So pleased to hear we have some good things going for us. If you ever want to come up for a few days cycling/walking in the area just give me a call as we can do some very good deals. All the best Ann and team.

Ann was so helpful on the phone, and at the end of our tough second day of C2C cycling, I was looking forward to only having to move meters from bike lock up to shower to dinner. And a young and friendly member of staff helped us lock our bikes up - then showed us to a room for 4...
