"Yet another time when I wish you used a scale of 10 rather than 5. I'd rate this as more than the 3 it has at present, but maybe not quite 4. We spend one night in Hexham en route to Scotland and ate here, a very nice surprise in a part of the world that hasn't been totally impressive food-wise in the past. Nice French restaurant, not cutting edge but nothing to really criticise. From the early bird menu (available until 9pm early in the week) salt cod fritters and slow-cooked belly pork were fine and excellent value. From the main menu chili salt squid with tabbouleh was excellent as was a veggie dish based loosely on ratatouille. Desserts very nice, and wine and coffee ok. Service couldn't be faulted, friendly helpful and efficient."
