The food was ok The service was a little slow, would have been nice to have had the same waiter/waitress for the whole meal but 5 or 6 different ones came each time!

Dinner was ok, fish and chips were very nice, chips were excellent. Burger and chips were also good. Disappointed with the limited menu and staff were poor. Very pleasant but no sense of service and no idea when asked about recommendations for wine.
Breakfast was terrible. 3 rashers
Of bacon literally welded together.

We did have to wait an hour and a half for our food, however staff were really apologetic, took a round of drinks off our bill and the food was so incredible that it was worth the wait! One of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Staff were very friendly, lovely atmosphere, would definitely recommend

We visited at the end of a lunch time session & as such the venue was very quiet.

However the quality of the food was excellent & presented with care.

Definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Lovely country inn offering inside or outside dining.
Food choice good and is well presented.
Only downside was there was some confusion which led to 1 meal being delivered late then staff started to clear whilst person still eating

We haven't previously been to the Percy Arms as we were on a weekend break in the area. The staff were very welcoming and the food was excellent. The service was a little slow but as we were not in any rush this wasn't a problem
We returned on Sunday to have a drink and sat in the sunshine on the deck which was very pleasant.

We were made to feel instantly welcome at the Percy Arms. The table was in the main bar but it was a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The staff were really helpful and attentive. We really enjoyed our food and there was a great drinks selection. We will definitely be returning.

Such a disappointment. Having been here for a mid week lunch ages ago, I suggested to come here for Fathers Day and booked online with plenty of notice. I was shocked when I arrived to the pub that the prices were significantly different to what they were advertising on their website, and I understand that this was a sample menu but we booked having noticed that Sunday dinners were priced around £14, which we thought was a standard price and were shocked when we arrived that a pork dinner was £16 and a beef dinner was £18! We're not sure if this was because it was Fathers day, but please update online prices if not! We all ordered a starter and a main course each. 3 out the 5 starters arrived, and we had to wait and chase the other two starters after 20 minutes of waiting. We had to reorder the starters, and luckily they came within 5 minutes and they were taken off the bill, and we're thinking these things happen. We then waited a further 45 mins for our main courses, which i think is long time between courses! 2 of us ordered the beef dinner, and we were appalled at the portion size for £18! The size of the beef slice was no bigger than the palm of my hand with lots of gristle and fat. Understandable, we complained because when you're paying £18 for a plate of food you are expecting £18 worth and we didn't. We were then told that they had ran out of beef, and could offer us more mash potato instead...um NO! I wish they had come and told us, and explained the situation prior to serving our dinner. The service on a whole was shocking, and like I said such a disappointment. The manager took the two beef dinners off the bill, which we appreciated but I wish they had been honest about it in the first place and we would have understood, but I think it's rude to try get away with charging someone this money and think they can get away with. We didn't order desserts and paid up. Will I return? No and unfortunately I won't be recommending this pub.

On holiday in Northumberland this was a recommendation. The food was very good, although the desserts were slightly disappointing. The service slipped and we had a wait of nearly 40 minutes between the soup and the main course. This was explained during the wait, although the precise reason was not clear. It seems as though the order might have been misplaced, following an order for a table of six.

The ambience was a little disappointing as we were the only table occupied in our room for most of our meal and there was no real atmosphere.

We enjoyed the food and the surroundings of the venue and the village are excellent. Probably won't return.

Great steak, chips that came with it looked very overcooked so did not look attractive. The chicken supreme tasted delicious but the accompanying mash potato had no seasoning and it did say it came with leeks but I presume they must have been in the sauce.
The service was very slow we put this down to inexperience staffing.

Nice evening. Good staff vibes. All them supporting one another - especially one whose first shift it was. Very smiley.

Nice Smoked Salmon pate to start followed by Fish & Chips. The chips were very chunky, which is fine. However, they were pretty soggy, which isn’t all that appealing.
