Proud of its freshly prepared food using locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients, the pub offers hearty mains including honey roast pork belly, homemade steak and ale pie and pan-fried salmon fillet.

4.) The Cook and Barker, Newton on the Moor 

Settle in at this five-star restaurant-and-inn for cosy get-togethers. The phenomenal menus champion the finest Northumbrian ingredients. For a hearty lunch, try the slow-cooked lamb shoulder with homemade bubble ‘n’ squeak or savoury minced beef and dumplings. However, if you’re looking for a special evening meal, we recommend the chargrilled fillet steak and a glass of red. Visit The Cook and Barker website here.

5.) The Angel of Corbridge, Corbridge

Dating back to 1569, The Angel of Corbridge is an historic coaching inn, perfectly positioned in the heart of one of Northumberland’s best-loved towns. Its menus are jam-packed with variety and seasonal, local produce. Cosy up next to the log fires with a coffee. If you’re feeling peckish, dig into filling dishes such as grilled Geordie Cumberland Sausage with creamed potatoes or battered North Sea fish with triple-cooked chips. Afterwards, the kitchen’s very own sticky toffee pudding is a real favourite among locals. Discover more about The Angel of Corbridge here.
