Owners of The Northumberland Arms and Percy Arms have taken over and beautifully re-furbished this proud fronted village pub in a style which is both fitting and accepting of the pub's heritage. The ethos of the new owners is to act as custodians of the (1900's) village pub - and not to re-invent the wheel rather to celebrate Northumberland its heritage and all it has to offer.
The pub is already buzzing with locals and word is spreading fast. The bar and restaurant area are busy with people calling for a drink or a coffee and our team of chefs are fully armed for the arrival of clientele wanting to sample the offerings of the kitchen. Although not essential reservations are always recommended!! The overall style is in keeping with a traditional village pub and reflective of eclectic yet traditional styling retaining as many original features as possible.
