Delighted to let you all know that we have been named County Winner for Northumberland in the National Pub and Bar Awards!
The winning pubs which have been selected based on overall good practice across a number of operational categories,will be officially crowned at a red carpet ceremony at BAFTA,Piccadilly on 23rd May.We are also in with a chance of being crowned overall National winner.

We are proud to serve great food but at the same time love that we’ve retained our status as a very much loved local inn and the bar and drinks that go hand in hand with that ethos, so are very excited to be included in this event,celebrating pubs across the UK.

As a small independant pub with no marketing budget these sort of accolades are so,very important to us and we do not take them for granted for one minute. With this award, along with MAINTAINING OUR ENTRY IN THE ESTRELLA DAMN TOP 50 GASTROPUBS at the end of January, we couldn’t have hoped for a better start to 2018.

Don’t forget in addition to our a la carte menu we also have our fixed price menu available weekday lunchtimes and early evening at a very good value £20 for three courses.

We would like to thank all of our loyal guests for their valued support and hope to welcome you to the Rat again over the next few weeks.
