    We went to the percy for an evening meal, we were sat in the bar area and the atmosphere was lovely and cosy with an open fire. We were a family of 6 with 4 dogs visiting northumberland. The staff were very friendly, accommodating and attentive towards the dogs too! There was plenty choice in the menu and the food was amazing. Over fantastic service and food and we will be back!

    Good hearty food which on the whole was excellent vfm. Having frequented the Percy Arms on numerous occasions, we have come to expect good food, service and a warm convivial atmosphere and once again we were not disappointed. The two staff with whom we interacted were both friendly and very attentive -this is Northumberland after all! If I was to have one criticism it would be that whilst the three desserts purchased were beautifully presented and delicious, £8 each is questionable. Perhaps individually price items would be more appropriate? Thank you.

    Nice waitress was happy for us to change our table from restaurant to pub due to slightly noisy children and feeling hemmed in against a wall. Food was lovely but with just one slice of roast beef on one plate, thought that rather mean. We did mention it and some discount was given but we tipped well anyway. Cauliflower cheese was offered and accepted but not really needed since the vegetables were many and varied.

    Lovely family meal. This is our second time here whilst visiting our holiday home in Swinhoe. Sunday dinner is outstanding. Children were well catered for. We were placed in a separate area which was great for our larger party. Staff were very accommodating. Will definitely be back.

    Food was amazing, room was lovely lots of nice touches in the room such as a mini bar, coffee maker. The bar was very quiet not a lot of atmosphere for a Saturday, but very relaxed. The only reason we didn’t give it a five was a wall in the room was wet (must be from a leak) the curtain pole was loose, and the pillow cover had stains on.

    I had the prawn cocktail to start which was really lovely. The trout and linguine I had for my main was the real star though. It was absolutely delicious. My husband had belly pork to start and he enjoyed it. He went for steak for his main and again said it was perfectly cooked and was a big juicy steak. We were too full for pudding which was a shame as I love dessert.

    Visited on a cold icy night. There was a lovely fire in the bar. We ate in the bar as the dining room was closed. We both chose fish & chips. They were really good !! Best chips ever ! The fish was succulent. Drinks quite expensive but a good choice. Service was good.

    Absolutely gorgeous Sunday Lunch! The staff were amazing too as when I booked I forgot to mention we had a dog. It was no trouble for them & when we arrived they just moved some tables around in the bar area to accommodate us. We will definitely return when we’re back up at Wooler.

    Food was absolutely delicious, had steak with chips mushrooms and peppercorn sauce. The chef knocked it out the park! Probably a bit too long between courses for our liking but maybe suit others. The deserts were just as tasty and all the staff were polite and chatty.. can’t wait to return for Sunday lunch

    Interesting menu but food did not live up to expectation. Monkfish tail dish was rather dry and would have benefitted from a sauce to tie it together. Bread that came with the salmon starter was rock solid. Other dishes were ok. Our waiter was excellent. She was very helpful and responsive.

    I went on Christmas Day with family and it was lovely.Wewere seated in the Gun Room which was gorgeous and although every table was being used it was not too noisy.Three ofthe tables were a bit too close together but it was manageable.The food was delicious and overall the service was good; but we had a bit of a wait for desert and we had to remind the staff that we were still waiting.As we had a long drive home they brought desert and coffee together so it was fine in the end.I would definately go again

    The service was poor. Only 3 other people in when we ordered as it was only 12pm and we waited ages for our food. We were going to have a dessert but we waited so long for our plates to be cleared we just gave up in the end! Left feeling disappointed as we had travelled from Shilbottle. On the plus side our food was lovely!
