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.

Lovely Sunday lunch


Isabelle H,
We had Sunday lunch here as we were staying nearby and we were not disappointed. The roast lamb was cooked perfectly and is served with a good selection of vegetables. For the quality and quantity of food the price was very reasonable and the staff were very polite. My only tiny complaint was that my starter (prawn cocktail) was a bit difficult to eat as it was served in a kilner jar but I'm just being picky. Overall, a really lovely meal and very nice setting. We will definitely eat here again when we next visit Northumberland.

The Duke of Wellington Inn replied: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about your experience with us last week end. It is great to read how much you enjoyed your lunch with us; I will also pass on to our staff your positive comments about the service you received. We look forward to welcoming you when you next visit Northumberland!

Surprise Sunday Lunch


Dorothy B, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Meet up with friends for Sunday Lunch. Lovely surroundings, good service and food was excellent. The restaurant was busy but tables well spaced and plenty of room. There was nine of us and we all said we would be going back.

The Duke of Wellington Inn replied: We are delighted you all had such an enjoyable experience with us for Sunday lunch; we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

The worst Sunday lunch ever!


PhilippineBlossom, Newcastle, United Kingdom
Only 2 weeks ago we visited this restaurant for Sunday lunch and my partner gave it a deserved 5 stars which merited a response from the owner, Rob Harris. Today it was the complete opposite and I am unable to comment on the food as it was swimming in excess gravy which obscured the contents of the plate. In fairness to the restaurant they offered to replace the meals and perhaps it was the hunger pangs which led to our declining this. A mistake on our part! When the waiter came to clear the plates he agreed that the gravy was excessive and offered to make some compensation on the bill. This did not happen and all that we encountered was an argument from an aggressive employee at the till. Needless to say, we won't be returning. I don't mind paying over the odds for good food but resent paying anything for substandard fare.

The Duke of Wellington Inn replied: Thank you for taking the time to write about re-visiting us yesterday for Sunday lunch, after your positive experience 2 weeks ago. It is only through feedback such as yours that we are able to maintain & if necessary, improve upon the service we provide to our valued guests. We act on all feedback given, so I have spoken to the relevant members of our management team whom you dealt with yesterday. I would like to clarify, as you yourself admit, that we offered to provide you with a new meal, with gravy served separately, which you declined. As a result, and due to the fact that you finished your food, therefore maybe not 'sub-standard fare', we didnt feel it was appropriate to remove your meal from the bill. We served over 150 satisfied diners yesterday, and pride ourselves on our consistently high 5* standards, so hope you will take the opportunity to visit us again in the future.

Lovely lunch


Brian D, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Just been for lunch with my wife. First it's a lovely place to be raining heavy outside but warm & welcoming inside. We sat on the leather lounges over a coffee & tea while we looked at the menu . I then relaxed a read the paper & my wife one of the magazine on the table. After about 10-15 min we were shown to a table our food the swiftly followed . My wife had the tomato & beetroot soup that she enjoyed I had the homemade burger that I thoughraly enjoyed. When the bill came they had missed off our drinks but I did remind them. In all a great lunch in lovely surroundings. With charming staff. The only reason it didn't get a 5 is because I keep that for really special places . I would definitely recommend this place.

The Duke of Wellington Inn replied: Thank you so much for taking the time to review your lunch at The Duke Of Wellington Inn. We are thrilled that you enjoyed relaxing aswell as your food. We look forward to welcoming you again on your next visit.
