"Tucked into the hillside, overlooking the Tyne Valley, this hard-to-find old drovers’ inn has an irresistible appeal.
The bar is cosy, with gleaming dark oak, flagged floor and roaring fire. Sup a pint of something local while you decide what to eat. Those who have yomped heartily to get here may be hungry: roast Northumberland rib of beef with watercress and golden chips for two is delicious."
"Originally the Abbot’s lodge and kitchens, the Lord Crewe Arms has become a Grade II-listed inn. The village, in a sheep-clad valley on the moor’s edge, was built with stone from the abbey’s ruins.
Inside are ancient flags, inglenook fireplaces, fortress walls and a classy country decor. Public areas range from lofty to intimate, and the atmospheric bar is in the vaulted crypt."
