Overall a pleasing experience.
Perhaps the menu was a little unadventurous.
Reasonably good value for money.

Wonderful meal and lovely atmosphere. They have coped really well with social distancing. The only negative was that there were lipstick marks on my glass. The waitress got me another straight away

The portions seem smaller than they used to be. Seem to be more burgers on the menu? I’m not a burger person. I can get burgers in the city centre, we come out to ‘Felton for fine dining.
Son’s peas On the child’s menu were like dry little pebbles.
Service was excellent, restaurant well presented, safety was good.
On the list in next page you have missed out dog friendly. That’s also a big draw for us.

Food was ok but very slow to arrive
My wife had the rump steak which was served up with a small piece of tomato, and a few mushrooms , no vegetables apart from skinny fries which should have been skin on fries according to menu. Overall food was ok but pretty average
On the positive side all the waiting on staff were very friendly and did their best to give us a nice experience, they just need extra help in the kitchen to get the food out a bit quicker

Not enough staff, had to wait over 1 hour for meal, then it was over cooked, they replaced this and the second meal was lovely, the people at tables around us were all complaining about the wait, social distancing was good.

Disappointed in the whole experience. Food was over cooked and cold and took far too long to be brought to table. From entering to leaving took 2 hours for 2 courses. Over rated and over priced.

Meal was very nice apart from the roast potatoes. I’m not sure if they were reheated too long but we could hardly cut into them. Staff very pleasant and helpful but very slow service for drinks.

Food good, a little pricey. Unfortunately service wasn't great. We were left with our empty plates for 30 minutes and did not get asked if we wanted a dessert. As we waited for so long, we asked for the bill (three times) before we had to request this and pay at the bar.

Lovely pub, table staff very good. Main courses were excellent. However, even though the pub wasn't massively busy, we waited 35 minutes for two slices of very cold bread with a bowl of olives and some butter, which was disappointing. And then a couple with 3 very noisy dogs were placed in the main restaurant next to us, having been moved due to disagreeing with another dog.
As a dog lover I have no issue with dogs in bars, outside areas or conservatories. But badly behaved ones in an indoor restaurant area? Afraid it ruined our meal and my ears, and at £65 for food, not acceptable. A shame, as it should have been a lovely birthday meal for my wife, but we won't be returning.

Was really looking forward to Sunday dinner after hearing great things about it, but left very disappointed. Food quality was excellent, but portions wholly inadequate for such a high price of £16.95, eg just three tiny potatoes.

Food excellent but spoilt by very slow service. Main course took 50 minutes to arrive, had to request a glass of wine 3 times before it arrived. Waited another 20 minutes for dessert menu, then gave up and left. Staff were friendly but getting their attention was very difficult.

Over priced, and waited ages for food, felt a uncomfortable when asked for condiments...staff were unapproachable. Especially the elder man, was overly posh and just make you feel he looked down upon you.

The Northumberland Arms
Responded on 10 September 2020

Thank you for your review, as we prepare everything fresh, food can take a little time which we believe is worth it. We do however appreciate that our price point does not suit everybody's pocket. FYI as part of our Coronavirus precautions, we do not automatically put condiments on the table in order to avoid cross contamination.

Service was extremely slow. We weren't asked if we wanted more drinks during the evening or dessert and we had to attract the attention of another waitress to get our bill. The food however was delicious but the service did put a damper on the evening.
