A “very good village pub”, but also rather more than that: Rhian Craddock’s snug Northumbrian boozer, in an out-of-the-way spot overlooking the Tyne valley, helped to kick off the local/seasonal craze over a decade ago, and continues to turn out top-quality fare, including local game.

Rhian Cradock’s “proper village pub with fantastic food” was “one of the originators of the local seasonal food movement” when it started-out preparing ‘Northumbrian cooking’ 12 years ago; and everything is presented “simply and very well”, including “superb game in season”. It’s worth seeking out in a “difficult-to-find village overlooking the Tyne valley”, and while some find it “rather cramped” or “squashy”, others reckon it “cosy”.

“Fresh Northumbrian cooking with local produce is very difficult to find”, and makes it “worth the effort” to truffle out this “out-of-the-way” but extremely popular village pub, serving “excellent locally sourced food with game in season”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
