On the outer edge of Hexham, this delightful old inn combines three virtues: good food, cozy rooms, and eco-friendly credentials, with a string of awards to prove it (including "Green Pub of the Year" in 2010). Bedrooms are simple but modern, with good-size bathrooms and a smattering of extras, such as free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. Two rooms are fully wheelchair accessible. The restaurant uses produce grown in the hotel's own gardens, and is especially crowded for the
traditional Sunday lunchtime roasts.
