A friend I had walked from Wallsend and were hungry. We stopped here and had steak pie with mash and veg. Along with a pint of Doombar it hit the spot. The surroundings were pleasant and friendly staff.

We stayed in Heddon on the Wall on the first night of our Hadrian’s wall walk and visited here for our evening meal. We were not disappointed. Food was delicious and a good size and staff were friendly and welcoming. Couldn’t have asked for more!
