Rude and extremely patronising staff

laurayballantyne1987, Hexham, United Kingdom
went for an evening meal with my father, the staff didn't seem very happy that we had turned up without booking....grumbling that we should have 'pre-warned' them that we were going to be turning up. We were shown our seat, and very quickly asked what we wanted to drink and asked if we knew what we were having...without even seeing the menu yet! Our drinks arrived and I expressed interest in the steaks....but I was directed to the 'more affordable' options. (how insulting???) I actually nearly got into a little spat with the waitress. We did actually get to eat what we liked in the end, so that was a bonus, but when we said we did not wish to have a dessert, the bill was brought over, and we were rushed out of the restaurant before we had even finished our drinks. My father and I are disgusted at the level of service received at this 'restaurant'. The staff and owner clearly have absolutely no customer service skill at all.

Wonderful time

Last minute visit, but so glad we went. Cosy, comfortable, clean room with fresh fruit and fresh coffee. Staff very friendly and could not do enough. Chef was very visible and keen to ask how you had found your meal, even knowing what we had ordered when given our room number. The owners were also visible and hands on. We spent a very pleasant hour in their company discussing the food and hotel. As for the food there is only one word to describe it - amazing!! Beautifully presented, tasted incredible, could not fault a thing. Planning our next visit already. Look out for Gilmore, the bar cat who is a character. No mobile phone signal at all, but if you want to get away from everything that too is perfect.

Wonderful stay

Stayed here for two nights on a travel zoo deal. Absolutely wonderful stay. The deal was 2 nights bed and breakfast with 8 couse taster menu on the first night. The food was absolutely delicious far exceeded our expectations. It was my birthday whilst there and I was given a complementary glass of prosecco from the owner. The room was lovely and exceptionally clean, it had homemade biscuits and fresh fruit for us to enjoy. The staff and owners were really friendly and welcoming. We will defiantly be returning.

What an absolute gem!

I'd been to this place before for a business meeting and promised myself I'd go back with friends. 3 couples took 3 lodges. One couple are seasoned travellers and teal foodies so always a bit nerve racking when you recommend! Didn't need to worry! Owners Richard and Dee did us proud. The lodges are stunning, food sublime. Most did tasting menu which they raved about. The story behind the pub's self sufficiency is amazing. We then went to the observatory for some stargazing; well worth doing and so different. Back to log fire for nightcap to perfect stay! Don't tell too many people this is special!

Superb hotel in a beautiful location. Room and food were of a high standard, a special mention of the staff who were friendly, professional and helpful at all times. A place to relax no matter what the weather
