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.

Even though power problems during the meal always kept informed and apologies offered regularly and had no effect on the lovely birthday meal for my Mother and dear friends. Will definitely be back for the burger and chips looked fabulous

Fabulous service from very friendly staff. We had the chicken and a beef sunday lunch which in all honesty was really beautiful, just cooked to perfection and has to be one of the best Sunday dinner meals we have ever had.

We thought the setting was superb, staff very friendly and food excellent. The only downside for us hence our marks for atmosphere was that we were sitting in conservatory and tables are quite close. The people next to us were clearly having an office meeting / brainstorming session outside of their workplace at a public restaurant and we found this intrusive to our own conversation.

We had a great night - our first time at the Rat having been recommended it by quite a few friends. We'd certainly love to return, although our finances might stop us for a little while!

Really pleasurable Sunday dinner out, made all the more delightful by the friendly service of our waitresses. Food was excellent, hearty and nourishing, and the helpings generous, The Rat has the perfect ambience for a relaxing stop during an Autumn drive to the countryside.
