Nice place and food control over unruly kids.

Ken H, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
We went to lunch here and liked the internal layout and decoration very much. I went towards what I thought was a buffet but it turned out to be for a private party, a notice to this effect it might have helped. A large family were having a special party for their Grandmothers 90th birthday. They were enjoying a good family occasion which was good to see. We ordered a drinks and a couple of sandwiches. The Beef Sandwich I ordered was a little different to the menu description but it was very nice anyway so not a big deal. There were a number of families in with their kids but some had little control over them. At least 4 kids running around the restaurant, standing on chairs, playing with sachets of sauces on other tables, their parents chasing them. Two parents not happy with each other on who had control, another parent playing with his mobile phone while his kids ran around. When paying my bill I asked if accepting behaviour of unruly kids was a Northumbrian thing but was told that this was a family restaurant! So, OK then? The restaurant size is big enough to have a special section for families, why not have one so next time we go we don't have to put up with lack of parental control. The staff were friendly and attentive. Parents and management should take control.

Christmas Dinner

James R, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
This was our second year the family of 14 had Christmas lunch here. This year we went for the second sitting. Service was very quick and staff were very pleasant. The turkey served was good but a few of the party were not aware they could also have beef as the chef only had turkey to cut. Only when a member of the party asked for beef was it brought from under the chefs serving area. I had to request some fresh Yorkshire puddings as the ones available were a little hard. I also found the vegetables like sprouts and carrots a little hard. This is the reason for giving 4 stars. I will not let this put my wife and I going back for a meal as we often go for Sunday lunch. I hope management will take on board my comments and inform the chef that what ever meats are available are past on to the customers when going up for lunch.

The Hogs Head Inn replied: Thank you for your review, I will pass your comments on to the head chef.

Wide ranging menu good for vegetarians

profjoypc, Alnwick, United Kingdom
We have eaten here on numerous occasions and are impressed because it has a very wide-ranging menu with ample choice for vegetarians. There are 5 or 6 dishes to choose from which in our experience is unusual. It gets very busy but you can usually find a table in the large bar/dining area. Service is friendly and prompt. I have also stayed in the hotel in the past and was impressed with the clean room with a 'new' feel about it. The whole establishment is tastefully decorated. Another advantage is its plentiful parking facility.

The Hogs Head Inn replied: Thank you for your kind words and review, we will hope to see you again in the future.

Great Christmas Dinner.

Second visit here this month. Food very good quality and value. Large portions and very tasty. Plenty busy enough today, but all staff helpful and didn't feel rushed. Will be visiting again next time we are passing. Thanks.

The Hogs Head Inn replied: Thank you so much for the rating and review, really hope to see you again soon.
