About The Rat Inn
Award winning food in a relaxed country pub atmosphere.
Karen and Phil have earned a reputation for quality since taking over the pub in late 2007. With Phil in the kitchen and Karen running front of house the pub has achieved recognition in many guides and is currently ranked number 13 in the Budweiser Budvar Top 50 gastropubs 2016.
The Rat is now open for food every day.
The menu is chalked on a board, with dishes changing daily depending on what’s available, a separate bar menu offers lighter snacks and delicious sandwiches.
Our Sunday lunch service is extremely popular with a choice of brunch dishes,roasts and local steaks ,so advance booking is essential.
The pub has always championed local food with as much sourced from suppliers based in the surrounding Northumberland countryside as possible.
Children are welcome at The Rat and we can provide smaller portions of whatever dishes we have on the menu to suit all tastes and appetites.
Excellent Sunday dinner. Great beer. Will be back soon!
Great pub, lovely service. Really accommodating and made us feel so welcome...
We visit 2/3 times a year when on holiday, have never been disappointed, all very nice and friendly!
My wife I made a significant effort to include a visit to The Rat Inn as part of our holiday in Northumberland as it involved a one hundred mile round trip from our holiday cottage near the other Anick (Alnwick). We were not disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed all three courses of our meal. The staff were pleasant and helpful. We look forward to returning when we can and have no hesitation in recommending The Rat Inn.
Atmosphere great! Food great! Service was a bit slow at the start not sure whether we ordered at the bar or table but apart from that can't fault a thing!
Faultless. Everything was simply fantastic. We will definitely be back.
Excellent food, superbly cooked with helpful, courteous friendly service. What's not to like?
