Harden's survey result
“The blackboard menu makes the most of local fresh produce” at this charming pub between Hexham and Hadrian’s wall, which has “a lovely rural location overlooking the Tyne”, “an excellent range of local ales” and “good choice of wine”.
“A charming, characterful pub between Hexham and Hadrian’s Wall”; while the food “isn’t haute cuisine by any means”, dishes are nonetheless “cooked very well” (fish, in particular, comes in a “more modern idiom than meat”).
In an “out-of-the-way” rural location, a “delightful country pub with a small but enticing garden, a roaring fire, and great ale”; it serves “robust, at times rustic, food prepared with care from good ingredients” (including “superb local beef”) and served “with no rush at all”; “simple and delicious!”
“A delightful place altogether”; in a small hamlet overlooking the village green, with the River Tyne in the distance, this “cracking” ivy-clad pub is certainly “off the beaten track”, but it’s “well worth searching out”, thanks to its “reliably good” grub, and at “honest prices” too.
The Rat Inn Restaurant Diner Reviews
"This old pub on a hillside in the hamlet of Anick above Hexham continues to be a favourite destination of mine, although the food doesn't seem to be quite as good now. But it still offers up great traditional food. For me, fish seems to be the best bet. Good beers."
"We visited in January.We ate from the fixed price menu which was exceptional value for food of this quality.A perfectly seasoned house terrine of the day(rabbit local) with house spiced chutney and some wonderful home made focaccia.For my main course I opted for the seabass which was perfectly cooked with some warming spced lentils.Good dessert to finish a lovely rich chocolate brownie with hoemade ice cream.The welcome was warm but not overly fussy our waitress receommended a lovely chianti from the specials board which was keenly priced.This is a real find for us our first visit but we'll defintely be back.We loved the rustic ambience and cant wait to come back in the summer the views from the agrden are amazing."
