Overview

The Duke of Wellington Inn is nestled in the Tyne valleys village of Newton just off the A69 near Corbridge, within easy access to Newcastle, Hadrian’s Wall Country, Hexham and Northumberland’s National Park. The inn has recently reopened following an extensive refurbishment. The new décor reflects the traditional country inn history but with a modern twist. Existing oak and stone has been enhanced with modern colours, furniture and fabrics. Lunches and dinners are served seven days a week in the bar and dining room.

The food provides traditional British comfort eating to an exceptional standard and makes use of local, seasonal ingredients. A comprehensive range of beers and ales compliments an extensive wine list. The inn experience continues with seven bedrooms providing a very high quality of luxury accommodation. There is an internal cycle and golf club store along with a boot room for those visitors who favour a less relaxing country break. The outstanding views across the Tyne valley provide the ultimate conclusion to a visit to the Duke of Wellington which will stay with you long after you leave.

A very nice Sunday lunch


mick1518979, Shotley Bridge, United Kingdom
We ate here today 4/6/17 and the food was excellent. I opted for the squid as a starter, followed by the roast beef with vegetables. The beef was so tender and cooked perfectly.

The Duke of Wellington Inn replied: Thank you for taking the time to review your Sunday lunch with us last week; it is high praise to read that the food you ate was cooked 'perfectly'. We hope to see you again in the near future.

Quality food.


Tallis, Northumberland
We had an evening meal in the bar area of this Farrow & Ball type -colour - scheme pub. We haven't been here for years and were impressed with the interior restaurant, bar and toilet facilities. The inn exterior has lovely views along and across the Tyne Valley with lots of tables and seating in case it's warm enough to sit out, in a lovely setting. The meal was excellent with a good variety of à la carte starters, mains and desserts as well as a daily special menu. Desserts were rather pricy for the amounts on the plate but in terms of flavour and quality couldn't be faulted. Staff were pleasant and initially attentive but as the rota appeared to change and different staff came on, service was very slow. We don't like to be hurried but this was exceptionally slow and the place was fairly quiet. Eventually we asked for a menu and the order came quite promptly after that. We will return and bring visitors.

The Duke of Wellington Inn replied: It is lovely to read how much you enjoyed not only the food on your visit to The Duke, but also the setting that we are proud to have. I can only apologise for you feeling the service you received was slow at times, I will make sure front of house staff are aware of your comments. However, it is great to read that you will be returning, so we look forward to welcoming you and the visitors you are going to bring too!

Worth the wait


Stephen H,
We have been meaning to come here for years but have just never made it. We had a lovely table for 4 near the windows overlooking the fantastic view. Good range of choice between 'fancy' and classic pub food. We ordered 3 courses and had 2 £28 bottles of wine and the bill came to £157. Good value for the food. Worth a trip.

The Duke of Wellington Inn replied: Thank you for takig the time to write about your long awaited visit to us; we are thrilled that it was all that you had hoped for! We certainly pride ourselves on the whole experience we want our guests to have; location, drinks and of course the delicious food our kitchen produce. We look forward to welconing you on your return visit.

Lunch with a view


CaseyJunior, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Late lunch today at the DoW was a very enjoyable affair. The menu is interesting- there is a set 2 or 3 course or some a la carte choices as wells. The steak and ale pie was delicious, while the spiced lamb and couscous was exquisite and demonstrated that it was more than just a pub grub venue. The wine (Pinot Grigio, £7 by the glass) was very drinkable for a pub house bottle. The service was good, except it took a while to order as the waitress had forgotten about us. The food took a little while to come out, but it was a beautiful day and the DoW boasts fantastic views over the Tyne Valley. Recommended.

The Duke of Wellington Inn replied: Thank you for taking the time to review your 'lunch with a view' with us. It is great to read that you found your choices 'delicious' and 'exquisite' whilst enjoying the lovely views. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
