We booked a table for 10 people for my husbands 50th Birthday and had a private dining area which was lovely. Food was excellent, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Service was very good, friendly staff. Overall I would thoroughly recommend The Northumberland Arms

I was expecting high end pub grub, instead what we ate would not have been out of place had we had it at a top restaurant at a double the price.

Good food at fair prices in a popular restaurant. The dining area was a bit too warm but that us easily corrected.

Everything was lovely though at times the service was very slow. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived and our table was not quite ready . Everyone in the bar made it difficult for the waiting staff to get through with food however once we were seated away from the bar everything ran more smoothly. Food choice was delicious and we all thoroughly enjoyed what we had ordered . The food was excellent overall and we all thoroughly enjoyed our evening .

My husband I visited for Sunday lunch and also to celebrate my birthday. Everything was perfect. I requested new potatoes, rather than duck fat roasted ones as I really don't like duck fat, I'm also conscious of keeping a healthy weight. My request was given and the roast beef dinner was delicious. As a treat we both chose treacle sponge pudding for dessert, very naughty but nice!
We were made very welcome and comfortable by the staff and we're pleased not to be rushed from our table as you sometimes are in other restaurants.
Very pleased, we have been previously but not for about 4 years!
We look forward to returning soon.

Fantastic food, relaxing and friendly atmosphere. We were able to bring our dogs with us as well which was great as we were staying at a cottage in the village. Highly recommended

From the second we arrived until the second we left the customer service was superb. Courteous cheery staff pampered to our every whim.
All 3 courses were sublime and wonderfully presented on their respective plates/dishes. Food good enough to eat and savour.
The Cook n Barker owners could learn a lot by eating here!

Food when it came was very good. However 3 of us had the hake dish which should have included Shetland mussels, according to the menu. No mussels, which was a disappointment to the 3 of us who originate from Shetland.
Fortunately we weren't in a hurry as the service was very slow. The waitress did apologise for this. Guessing the kitchen was short staffed that night.

Service let down the very good food. Ordered bread and olives from the menu then told there were no olives. Waitress surprised to be asked for a plate to eat the bread off. Needs to be a restaurant manager to oversee the dining room but short-staffed, no doubt to save money as too many restaurants do.

We visited whilst on holiday in August, we have been to this restaurant before and had enjoyed our meal. To be honest it felt really snooty and extremely overpriced... The steak I ordered (rare) was cooked rare however was extremely chewy that 3/4 of it was inedible. It came with a small pot of chips, a small mushroom and tomato and a pot of apparently blue cheese sauce.... I mentioned to the waitress that the steak was inedible.... her reply was what would you like me to do.... Not particularly great customer service.... I thought they would've replaced the steak in the end I just had the chips and sauce... they did remove the steak from the bill but not the blue cheese sauce... To be honest I've bought better steaks at Aldi costing me less than 3 pounds.... a very disappointing end to our holiday in Northumberland...

We all enjoyed our meal very much and the service was very good. Only disappointment was one of the three scoops of homemade sorbet. The strawberry was ice cream, not sorbet , and it did not taste homemade.
The Falafel were absolutely delicious.

Although the roast beef was delicious, the yorkshire pudding was overcooked and only 2 small chewy potatoes with the veg did not make the meal worth the price I paid. At the end of the lunch and after receiving the bill, there was no sign of any staff to pay it, so had to leave cash on the table. Very disappointed

The four of us all had tasty and well presented meals. Two steaks cooked as requested, Pan Haggerty which was a first time of trying and a hit and lamb wellington which disappeared quite quickly! We found the actual table a little squashed for the size of plates and flowers/salt&pepper tray, drink glasses etc. So I moved somethings off to an adjacent window sill. However, that didn’t stop us enjoying the dining experience. The staff were efficient and questioned we had all we wanted without being intrusive, so great.

Lovely food with nice staff. The layout of tables is staggered throughout the ground floor, some areas seem nicer to sit in than others. It may be worth specifying where you want to sit when booking.
