Nice little village pub in the heart of rural Northumberland. Big portions of decent food at very reasonable prices. The beer garden is very pleasant in the sunshine, and the cosy, old-fashioned heart of the pub looks just right for settling down with a pint (or two) at the end of a long hike.
Decent little Italian restaurant. Good, traditional Italian-style pizza, and very tasty desserts. (I have my doubts about whether the desserts were home-made, but I can’t say that really bothers me.)
“Home of Chicken Piri-Piri,” their signs declare. It looked tempting (1/2 chicken marinated in Piri-Piri sauce), but I had a burger instead, which was decent. Enormous desserts. Fine for families, with a nice play area out back.
