                                                      We arrived 10 mins early and we were shown straight to our table. When asked what we would like to drink my partner said that she would like a mocktail. The waitress said that although she did not have a mocktail list she would prepare a drink that she hoped would be acceptable. Sure enough within a few minutes a drink was served to my partner. The drink was perfect. The food we ordered was cooked to perfection. That set the pattern for the whole meal. We will certainly go back soon. Well done to all at the Anglers Arms.

                                                      We've been going to The Anglers for about 2 years and it has always been good. However since last autumn we've noticed the portion sizes have diminished and the prices increased. We paid nearly £50 for 2 main courses and 2 drinks! If the main course had filled me it would have been fine. However, we were still hungry, but couldn't justify spending another £15 for pudding! It's a shame as the service is always good and I really like it. Will need to find somewhere else and hope they will think more about value for money and keeping customers.

                                                      Our food came very quickly, the steak and ale pie had a soggy pastry and had been microwaved limited veg, the fish was dry and lacked flavour. I was disappointed the food was not great and £10 for a large glass of wine which tasted like it had been open a while. Had better experiences before so felt let down as this was a birthday treat!

                                                      Basic pub menu, quite nicely presented with friendly service. Food typically priced, wine a bit expensive.

                                                      Lots of good food on the Sunday lunch menu. I chose the roast dinner, but unfortunately the lovely vegetables on my plate were cold. The meat was good and in generous portions. I thought the Yorkshires were heavy and stodgy and I like light and crispy ones so not to my taste. My husband enjoyed his burger. Our starters of king prawns were excellent but a bit heavy on the salad dressing. The deserts of raspberry cheesecake and chocolate brownie both with ice cream were very good. Staff were very busy but very efficient and service was smooth and timely, they were friendly and pleasant, and attentive.

                                                      Good, quick service. Shown straight to our table and our drinks order was taken quickly. The food came quickly enough but only one slice of beef each and it was very stringy and chewy. My wife’s was worse than mine, so she left most of it. Not a great deal of veg. Literally one carrot each, two pieces of broccoli, one roast potato, etc. The swede mash was tasteless and very watery. Overall it was average and that’s fine as it’s sometimes the way things go for Sunday lunch. We had a 2.45pm booking so most pubs have had their main rush by then so things aren’t always as perfect as they are at say 12.30. It wasn’t cheap though. £18 each for just a main course. We eat all over Northumberland every week and the norm is about £12-£14. £18 is fine when the food is great but we’ve eaten better food at £12 places. We’ve been to the Anglers a few times and to be fair it’s usually better than our most recent visit, so we’ll chalk it down to an off day and an unlucky cut of roast beef.

                                                      The food at the Anglers Arms is good with a large menu and lots of choice, including a specials menu. Service was good - it was quiet when we arrived so lots of staff waiting to serve us though we did need time to chose from the extensive range of dishes! We arrived early but our table was ready so we were seated straightaway. I actually had a starter from the bar menu (the Camembert) which was delicious. My husband had the mushrooms which were also very good. I chose the Stilton and leek pie for my main course and he had the steak burger. Both were large portions andI could not finish mine but very nice food. We had no room for a dessert so had a coffee to finish.

                                                      Lovely setting. Had lunch out on covered terrace. Was quiet when we arrived but got busier however plenty of staff on and had no issues in being attended to, ordering or receiving our food. Decent value for money, but am always a bit annoyed when soft drinks are more expensive than a lager ...
