Featured Hexham Restaurants
1. Barrasford Arms British, Modern restaurant in Barrasford
Michael and Victoria Eames took over this pub overlooking Houghton Castle in 2017 and their “very friendly” team contribute to its “relaxed atmosphere”, serving traditional-ish, very affordable cooking that’s consistently well-rated: “we locals want to support them because they are doing a good job”.
2. Bouchon Bistrot French restaurant in Hexham 4-6 Gilesgate - NE46
A “perfect, archetypally French restaurant, with all the classical touches, from the staff to the ambiance” – Greg Bureau’s bistro is “as fun as it is authentic”. “After several visits, it’s still a surprise to find a place with such a French feel in the heart of a Northumbrian town!”.
3. The Rat Inn British, Traditional restaurant in Hexham Anick - NE46
“Not sure pubs get any better than this?” – this “quintessential country pub” in a hamlet outside Hexham comes complete with “dogs and pints at the bar” and “unsurpassed views” from the “beautiful garden”. The cooking is in a traditional vein with “a good choice of local fish/game”: it offers “very good-value snacks, or a full-blown restaurant-quality meal should you prefer”.
4. Hjem Scandinavian restaurant in Wall The Hadrian Hotel - NE46
Run by Swedish chef Alex Nietosvuori (‘Hjem’ means ‘home’ in both the local Northumbrian and some Scandinavian dialects) – this May 2019 yearling opened just as the survey was concluding. With 24 seats, the aim is to deliver Scandi-inspired cuisine via either a six-course or 12-course tasting menu. Some initial adulatory press reviews suggest that visitors to Hadrian’s Wall at last have a foodie stop-off as a competing attraction.
