Farlam Hall Country House Hotel

Reviewed By Joseph H - Ossett, United Kingdom

I had always wanted to visit Farlam Hall for many years and finally had the chance to visit here on Saturday 3rd October. I was extremely impressed by the entire experience and would recommend it to anyone who is after that kind of experience.
A grand building and we were made to feel very welcome and sat in front of a roaring fire in the lounge with canapes and drinks before being called in for dinner (one sitting at 8pm).
The food was amazing and it was a five course meal for £49.50 each. A choice of three starters and mains plus around five desserts. Due to making them aware well in advance they were able to produce a totally vegetarian menu for my other half, with the same number of choices as the standard menu, which was a first in my experience.
I chose the hot spiced Morceambe Bay shrimps as a starter with toasted brioche followed by a raspberry sorbet. Mains was medallions of local pork fillet with creamed potato, caramelised apples and crispy pancetta (with a side dish of vegetables). A huge choice of cheeses followed with biscuits, celery, grapes and apples, finishing with a dessert of glazed lemon tart. It was then back to the lounge and fire for tea, coffee and chocolates.
An excellent experience overall and possibly my best meal of the year so far. I would highly recommend.

Blacksmiths Arms

Reviewed By sonrenarddoux - Loveland, Ohio

We were so very glad to find this place! The pub we'd planned to patronize was closed without explanation (small towns!), so we found a local on the street and asked for a recommendation. Without hesitation, he jumped in his car and said, "Ahhh, that's easy. Follow me!" (Small towns here are filled with extremely friendly, helpful folks!) Ten minutes later we were at the Blacksmiths Arms and were actually glad our original choice was closed. This was a highlight for us. Not only is the interior of this inn historic and charming, the atmosphere is total gemuetlichkeit -- so comfy, friendly, unobtrusive, yet welcoming that you want to stay the whole evening. Across from us were families, singles, couples...local folks of all ages, enjoying good food and friends. My husband ordered the hummus balls appetizer and was in heaven, followed by the fresh trout. I went for the baked brie starter and the lamb shank and joined him singing with the angels. Whoever is in that kitchen knows what she or he is about and obviously cares. If you want an honest, hearty meal handmade with local, fresh ingredients from the countryside, stop here.

Kirkstyle Inn

This inn overlooks the South Tyne river and its beautiful fells. Situated "off the beaten track" it well rewards those who travel to find it. It is also a very good lunch spot for those who ride the narrow gauge railway from Alston. The Kirkstyle Inn has been awarded a TripAdvisor " CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE" for each of the last five years, placing it in the top 10% of establishments, worldwide,for customer satisfaction!

Reviewed By Kenneth K - Haltwhistle

Set in a beautiful landscape in close proximity to interesting, historical sites and spectacular scenery, we had another wonderful meal. Chosen from a very good selection of “specials” as well as the regular menu. The excellent food which I understand is from local suppliers where possible and cooked to order was prepared with great care by chef Julie. I cannot understand the comments of Tania Dixon from Auchterarder perhaps she went to a different Restaurant.
This dog friendly pub should not be missed.

Greenhead Hotel Restaurant

Reviewed By Rantin rover - Biggar, United Kingdom

I came upon here driving back home after a hike along part of Hadrian’s Wall and dropped in for a meal early evening.
There is a car park around the side and back of the building.
It has a comfortable, traditional looking bar which is nicely furnished and this area suited me in the circumstances although I understand that there is also a separate restaurant. There were a few locals in having a drink and some guests having meals so the atmosphere was pleasant. I didn’t think it was overly busy however bar staff pointed out that the kitchen were and to expect to wait for food which wasn’t a big issue for me - it turned out to be 20-25 minutes or so at a guess by which time I’d almost finished my pint. (The bar was very well staffed - perhaps overstaffed for the number of guests - so any delays were down to issues in the kitchen).
The menu has many traditional favourites so it wasn’t lacking choice and this was supplemented by a few specials - one of which I had opted for - cod wrapped in bacon and served with crushed potatoes, asparagus and a tomato based sauce. For whatever reason it was a bit dry and lacked flavour so I found myself eating it for the sake of having some nourishment since I’d only had some soup earlier in the day. Maybe just the wrong choice on the night. Add a bottle of still water and the bill was £13.40 which I thought was reasonable value for a bar meal.
Staff were friendly and the toilets well maintained.
I’d try it on another occasion if in the vicinity.

The Stone Inn

A local, traditional pub with an upstairs restaurant room.

Reviewed By simon h - Bath, United Kingdom

Needing a decent dinner but not a blowout before a bike cycle event the Stone Inn was located and available for booking. Busy and lively with locals the saloon bar was a bit of a scrum but the restaurant upstairs was calmer and we sat down straightaway and ordered. Choices were fine and well priced I was very happy with my chicken and chorizo which was tasty and nicely cooked, vegetables all ' al dente ' And very good. Friends steak pie looked a bit heavy going. Beer excellent (Tyneside Gold). This is strsightforward and good value service very good. Recommended.

As the only cafe we could see, after a long walk, we were looking forward to siting down and having a drink and snack but unfortunately we were told the cafe was closed, before the stated closing time.Good afternoon, so sorry to hear this has happened. Just a reminder to all customers our last food order is 15 minutes before closing time and is stated on blackboard inside. Hope this helps. Many thanks House Of Meg

Reviewed By Totalpost - Alston

The present cafe is beautifully constructed, has wonderful yet simple food and a great gift shop. It even has a dog section to the cafe and caters for all ages, on a single floor, with great use of space. We visited at around 4.00pm and the cafe stated it was open until 5.00pm and serving staff were responsive and helpful although the plates were hot, having just come from the dishwasher I suspect and normally not a problem but it become so when putting a slice of "rocky road" chocolate onto it - imagine the mess. Worst part of an otherwise very acceptable visit was that one lady was rushing around with a sweeping brush cleaning dust and food particles from the floor around every table near ours while we were eating which was off putting, unhygienic and very distracting and thoughtless - lessons to be learned.

Duke of Cumberland

Reviewed By JenniBEatsOut - Carlisle, United Kingdom

This is easily one of the best pubs in the Brampton area. The pub has a lovely cozy feel with an open fire and candles on the tables. Has a contemporary but not ultra modern feel about the place, which is in keeping with the building & surroundings.
Really enjoyed the food, everything was home cooked, with attention to detail. Good choice of Roast Dinners on a Sunday, traditional pub food & specials with a twist.
The bar is well stocked, a fab selection of Gins available, I enjoyed the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc of the wine list! We visited for a family meal and all of us thoroughly enjoyed it, nothing was too much trouble! Thank you :)

Greenhead Tea Room

Reviewed By claire b - Prudhoe, United Kingdom

Lovely place to visit, good value for money and a tasty lunch with fresh ingredients - couldn't ask for much more. Staff very friendly and welcoming even giving us leaflets and directions for a local walk. Good choice of food, everyone in our party had something different and it didn't disappoint - from soup to toasties and bacon rolls. Very child friendly. Cosy atmosphere, will look forward to our next visit.
