Even More Dining Out

Dining out is a great way to really enjoy your time away from home, no preparing, cooking and no washing up. Where to dine out is one of our most frequently asked questions and we are so lucky to have so many fantastic eateries in our local area.

We have not only one but two Michelin star restaurants both just a stone’s throw away. One of which is Restaurant Pine located at Vallum Farm who offer an exceptional yet relaxed dining experience with a generous tasting menu using locally sourced ingredients and those grown in their own onsite kitchen garden. Sit back and enjoy the magnificent views of surrounding Northumberland countryside or watch all the action as your tasting menu is carefully prepared in the bespoke open kitchen. Booking are released quarterly so you’ll need to plan your visit in advance of your stay with us. For full details of Restaurant Pine and how to book please go to their website.

Another wonderful dining out option is The Valley restaurant near Corbridge which promises a unique and pleasurable dining experience in luxurious surroundings. Superbly presented authentic dishes from Bangladesh and the Indian subcontinent are served with impeccable style by attentive waiters. The Valley Corbridge has a fantastic reputation and you may have spotted it on Michael Portillo’s ‘Great Coastal Railway Journeys’ where he boarded the renowned Passage to India or The Curry Train as it is more affectionately known. To book your table pop over to their website.

The Valley’s sister restaurant Cilantro sits in the heart of Hexham Market Place and again here you will receive an impeccable and friendly service but find a menu that offers something a little different from your usual Indian cuisine as they also offer a fusion of Indian and Latin American food in tapas style. It’s one of own favourite places to dine out. For more details and to book please go to their website.

If good hearty English pub food is more your taste then look no further than The Black Bull in Corbridge which in a traditional building that dates back to 1755 and offers a real country pub welcome.
