Lovely location, very quiet. Staff were fantastic & the food is great. If you want a lovely friendly location that is quiet this is your place. It is not high end however I love the quirky site that offers the basics with a smile. I would definitely come again, 2 mins from Alnwick castle and only £22 a night!

Drinks were put on meal bill and all paid for at the end. Didn't feel rushed and offered a choice of desserts. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts and...

We visited the Shepherds Rest this past Saturday and were given use of the conservatory as a function for 20 people. The atmosphere in the pub was warm and friendly, with the staff being simply wonderful. There was a welcoming atmosphere as soon as we arrived and the staff were incredibly considerate towards my elderly grandmother. I would highly recommend...

I went to this pub for the first time today. Just me and my daughter who has autism. The staff were great. They helped me with the carvery by carrying and filling my daughter's plate for her. The carver was also very friendly and spoke to my daughter (which a lot of people don't when they hear she has autism)...
