Sunday lunch is always a treat at the Granby. Tender roasts, perfectly cooked vegetables and always a crunchy Yorkshire pud .
And such good value .......
we eat there regularly and can thoroughly recommend it.

Went to the Granby Inn on the recommendation of a few friends as they all said the food was great. They were right about the food and the service. We were made to feel welcome and the food was really well presented and tasted a good as it looked. The only negative about the whole experience of eating here was that all the tables needed a good rub down and revarnish. It is only a personal thing, but when the table tops are in your eye-line all the time, it detracts from the overall dining experience. However, apart from my 'furniture' issues, I would still recommend eating here, especially on the speciality nights e.g. Curry night.

ordered battered prawns for starters got 3 for £4.50. Had rump steak for main, asked for medium rare and was so tough I had to cut it into tiny pieces just to chew. Not worth £14.50.
At least my wife’s meal was ok. Won’t be going back

The menu was extensive and varied and the steak I personally ordered came exactly as requested and would be in my top 3. Recommendation enough I feel. The atmosphere was friendly and the service was excellent . So much so that, being a holiday booking, we made a second booking for 5 days later.

We received a very friendly welcome at The Granby Inn. The atmosphere was warm and there was a really lovely traditional feel about the pub - which is missing so often nowadays. The food was all cooked fresh and was absolutely delicious!

It is over 15 years ago that we last visited The Granby and the interior has not changed one bit in that time. Although the main course Sunday lunch (beef & pork ordered) were delicious and would have scored a 5 the starters were all rather tasteless in comparison. Overall this pub restaurant provides good value but needs some remedial work on the tired decor.

Really polite staff with prompt service and excellent quality food of great value. Battered Cod and the Scampi are highly recommended and the home cooked chips are like doorsteps....amazing! Unfortunately we didn’t have room for dessert because our mains were so filling! But having seen some of the desserts they looked amazing too.

Only down side were the tables for two were too close together and there were no young families their at the time we ate!...

It's been a long time since we visited The Granby and it didn't look like anything has been done to it inside in all these years - somewhat in need of a little TLC and updating. I got the cod and chips and the batter was very oily. The other 3 diners in our party we’re not overly impressed either and we all thought it was slightly overpriced.

Steak night is always great value at the Granby and last night was no exception. We had four rump steaks, with chips, mushrooms and tomatoes and it was delicious.
We like a table in the bar area so we can enjoy the ambience and friendly chat.
Very attentive staff including the lovely Meghan .

We were staying for the bank holiday and found the Granby Inn did online bookings.
The pub was lovely and quaint and the food was very tasty and service was quick for a Saturday night.
Great value for money and lovely food.

I booked the table last minute and secured a table for 5.45pm (we were having early tea).. As we were the only ones in the restaurant at that time it was very quiet. The Manager did seem to be running back and forth from the kitchen to the bar although it did not appear busy from where we were sitting. The menu choice was vast with specials, and day menu and an evening menu. After placing our orders we did wait rather along time for our food, placing the order at about 6pm and the food wasn’t served until approximately 6.40pm. Having said that everything was delicious and the manager did ensure that he checked in with us a couple of times. I would have awarded 5 stars overall if not for the long wait. (Keeping in mind it was not busy at our time of visit) However this would certainly not put us off as I said the food was top notch and the staff were all friendly and made conversation

Revisited for lunch after 15 years. Great food, fab service and excellent value. Forgotten how nice the Granby is. Internal decoration has not changed a bit which is rather sweet. External rear car park could be improved - bins screened, weeds pulled out etc. Will not be leaving it long till we next return!

Sunday lunch. This time was only average. Insufficient veg and beef was only a barrage this. Won't stop us going back though. Everyone has an off day at times.

Very enjoyable meal- tasty food, well prepared- pleasant staff and reasonable cost. Only issue was that the request for coffees to be served with dessert wasn’t met. Otherwise all was very good.
Thank you
Ps Would suggest customers with large cars not allowed to park in front thus blocking pavement and forcing customers walking from car park to have to go onto road - pretty dangerous!!

We stayed at The Granby Inn for a couple of nights and decided on the first night we would eat there. They do a Set Menu which is £22.95 for 3 courses, or A La Carte we opted for two courses starter and main as I thought I might be overfaced with dessert as well, I wasn't wrong. For starters my husband had Black Pudding Scotch Egg which he said was lovely and I had Deep Fried Camembert which was also lovely. For main we both had Rump steak with all the trimmings and it was lovely and cooked just as we like it. Also had a very nice bottle of their House White Wine. The people are very friendly and would definitely recommend

We ended up sitting in the bar next to the door despite having booked. Given that the place was not busy, the service was very slow and the sauce served with the steak was cold. However, the starters were very good and my main and the desserts were too, but the overall experience was not conducive to a return visit, We live locally and have heard good reports about the place, we certainly seem to have picked an off day though. Won't be rushing back.

We visited The Granby to celebrate my parents' Diamond Wedding Anniversary. It was a place they have grown to love over the years but had not visited for a long time. They were delighted to be recognised by the owner as soon as we entered. The Granby was just as we had all remembered it - not in a time has stood still way, but in a comforting way - it was just as good as we had remembered it.

We were made very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the ambiance.

It was a memorable evening for many reasons but The Granby made it extra special. Thank you.

This pub is set in the heart of Northumberland and I thought they would use locally sourced ingredients
We choosed the Northumberland roast beef for my self and my wife, the beef was prepackaged and had no taste the vegetables where that hard we could not cut them, to say we were disappointed is any under statement.
Would not recommend
