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.

The Rat Inn is now firmly back at the top of our ‘Favourite Places to Eat’. We chose from the Christmas menu. The food was nicely presented and extremely tasty. There was plenty of it too - we couldn’t fit in a pud. Excellent value for money. Thank you.

The best in the area. Great food every time. Steaks are lovely and prepared just right. I love the decor, I don’t know how they’ve managed to get so close to chintz while still making it look so good.

Lovely staff; helpful, friendly and professional. Really tasty food and drink and a comfortable atmosphere. A big shame that there are no baby changing facilities despite having space and facilities for babies to visit.
