Harden's survey result
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”.
“Very popular” village gastroboozer – and “deservedly so”, given its “interesting range of dishes” (including “excellent game and other local produce”). The interior’s “a bit stark”, and “it can feel cramped when busy (which is the norm)”, but it’s “well worth the effort to get out there”.
