Dog Friendly???

Janet H,
This is advertised as being a dog friendly pub. Unfortunately after checking out the website, we decided to call in with our two dogs for a drink. I asked if it was ok to take our two dogs in and the member of staff said that they weren't allowed in the bar or the restaurant (I agree with the restaurant part) but we could sit outside. Really??!!! Not so dog friendly after all!

Great place for a harry potter themed break!

Peta B, York, United Kingdom
Took our niece (7) and nephew (10) to Alnwick and stayed at the Inn - obviously! Had a wonderfully warm welcome and all 4 of us were amazed at the size of the room - superb. Generous portions for our evening meals and the kids loved the outside play area and even used it before breakfast. Service was great and friendly and food was good. Overall a great place to stay and we'd stay again just the 2 of us.

Winter Offer

WeaverTom, Kendal, United Kingdom
Whilst visiting Northumberland took advantage of a winter offer by a local hotel chain. The Hog's Head is just off the A1 with good parking although the disabled bays are still a trek to reception which isn't well signposted. Nice room and 2 course meal in the price. Only a couple of options carried a surcharge unlike at some places. My request for a room near reception was met and staff were most helpful even carrying bags to the car in the rain when it was time to leave.. Would definitely stay again.

The Hogs Head Inn replied: Thank you for leaving this review - So pleased our team were able to help you in all aspects! Sorry about the confusion from the sign's and about the walk! Please feel reassured that we do take all feedback on board and we will love to welcome you back again soon!

Large tooms

Kady B, Henlow, United Kingdom
Amazed at the size of the rooms which had a super king and double sofa bed in with lots of room still to have a double buggy and play space for my children. Bathrooms could be updated but still sufficed. Restaurant attached a shame they don't offer room service but the food was still good. Good choice for breakfast too

The Hogs Head Inn replied: Thank you for taking your time to leave this great review, so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay with us! We do all hope to see you soon!

Pleasant service

SandieG19, Leeds, United Kingdom
Found this last minute for some friends. Reasonably priced for a family of four. First room had a sofa bed for two teenage kids which was unsuitable. It was quickly rectified. Staff were pleasant and helpful. It is part of the services on an industrial estate but has easy quick access from the A1. Only five mins drive to Alnwick castle. Would recommend to others, part of a chain of 5/6 throughout Northumberland.

The Hogs Head Inn replied: Thank you for leaving this review - so pleased our staff were able to rectify the problem for you. We have 7 different Inn's in the North-East - if you wish to have a look at our other beautiful Award Winning Inn's, you can find them on our website 'inncollectiongroup'. Thank you for recommending us and we do hope to see you again soon!
