Attractive pub built in 1759 overlooking the village green. The exterior has won Northumbria in bloom awards on several occasions. Inside, there is a split-level bar, pool room and lounge/restaurant - landlord Ian's curries on a Wednesday night are legendary. There is always a beer from local Mithril Ales on offer. Thursday is games night, Sunday is quiz night and there is monthly entertainment on a Saturday. The pictureque beer garden has a smoking shelter. Santa's sleigh sets off from here every Christmas Eve.
