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 14 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 our a la carte menu offering a choice of local roasts in addition to the regular options-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.
