Harden's says

A traditional village pub, with five rooms for staying over, situated north of Morpeth in the Cheviot Hills.

Owner's description

In the heart of rural Northumberland in the village of Chatton you'll find The Percy Arms; an ideal place to visit, dine or stay in luxury. Take a drive Northbound on the A1 from Morpeth (a mere 36 miles), follow the signs for Chillingham Castle and you'll descend on the peace and tranquillity of Chatton. On your drive there, you'll witness the spectacle of the Cheviot Hills, the varied hues of the grasses and heaths and appreciate the true splendour of our county.

The Percy Arms is the ideal place to visit or stay for those looking for a relaxing break in informal but luxurious surroundings in the Northumberland countryside. The Percy Arms is in close proximity to some fantastic places including the spectacular Northumberland coastline, National Park, fine Castles and country houses, splendid churches and delightful towns and villages.

To the right of the bar is our delectable 28 seat restaurant; food is served throughout from 12 noon until 9pm. An extensive combination of seasonal, locally sourced produce presenting everything from hearty soups with homemade breads, appetizing meat and fish planks, homemade ‘stacked’ burgers and sandwiches and for the heartier appetite, best quality steaks, traditional beer battered Fish & Chips and warming Shepherd’s Pie. In short, something for everyone. Daily specials will also be available — check our blackboard for details. For our discerning guests who still have room, we have an extensive homemade dessert menu with a full repertoire of Doddingtons Ice Creams, etc etc.

The overall style is in keeping with a traditional village pub and reflective of the owners' eclectic, yet traditional styling, retaining as many original features as possible. Although not essential, reservations are always recommended!

“Beautiful Pub with great food and service”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 20 April 2015
I can only review the pub as I've yet to stay at the Percy Arms. However, I've been to the Percy Arms twice now and have really enjoyed both occasions. The food is excellent and the service is very relaxed and extremely friendly. The food menu has a great selection of locally sourced products. The interior décor is beautiful and very inviting. They have a good selection of beers and wine. I've been to quiet a few pubs in Northumberland and this one is now top of my list. Looking forward to spending a few more visits in the future at the Percy Arms. I wish the owners all the best as there are so many villages that need a vibrant and friendly place to go.

“Northumbrian Gem”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 10 March 2015
The village of Chatton is a little off the beaten track, but that's what makes this place such a find. The pub is a beautiful and traditional village pub with the log fire and flagstones you would expect but the real surprise is the quality and finish in the extremely impressive refurbished bedrooms.
The facilities are excellent, the pub food even better. The menu offers something for everyone and the presentation is very good. The full English breakfast is outstanding, particularly if you can get a seat by the fire with the (Sunday) papers on hand...
