Me and my partner went for Sunday lunch first time visit. We sat waiting a while waiting for someone to come take our order then while we was waiting for our starter to be served a lady came walking into the restaurant with a dog where people was eating their meals. We had the garlic mushrooms to start which was were really nice. Both me and my partner ordered a Sunday lunch my partner ordered belly pork I ordered chicken. These came with a very large Yorkshire Pudding which was tasteless and bland and a dish of cauliflower cheese and a dish of carrots and broccoli that looked like they they had come out of the microwave. My chicken was hard around the edges and very dry which I sent back advising what the problem was. This was replaced with a new plate of dinner. The chicken was still very dry and hard around the edges. Both meals were tasteless and both of us left most of the meals. When asking for the bill we was not asked if everything had been ok as I think the waiter knew we was not happy with either the meal or the service. Would definitely not recommend and would not go back.

Stayed one night on 15 January 2020. Lots of parking. Friendly staff. Very clean. Mattress had probably seen better days -- very hard / lumpy -- but managed good sleep. Bedside lights had bulbs that were so weak we couldn't read by them! Dinner and breakfast in bar area -- very good. Real ale at bar, so I was very pleased. Would definitely use again.

Old coaching Inn with history, Excellent value for three star, friendly staff who sorted out problem with missing phone in the room. Clean, warm and cosy. Nice view of river. Good food. Seen many negative comments on here. What do you want for under £50 bed and cooked breakfast for two people? Would not hesitate to come back.

The room was excellent with a view of the rather swollen river Tees, It was warm & cosy. The evening meal was fine too, the staff were friendly & efficient. The breakfast was warm, not hot. The sausage had been reheated as had the bacon but not enough. Everything else was really good but it was let down by the breakfast

i stayed here for 5 nights and the single room i booked was in fact a double en suite at the top of the hotel.the decor is very befitting for a country coaching inn, with the associated antiques and open fires. the staff are well drilled and always willing to assist.food was also good and a wide selection available, can personally recomend the salmon, and most definately the sticky toffe pudding. breakfast was good too, with the usual selections of pastries, cereals, juices and full english as well as omelletes, poached haddock etc.great value for money and the scenery nearby is excuisite , the river tweed adjacent to hotel and grounds. ample parking too!
