If you’re exploring the sights and sounds of Northumberland, then visiting Corbridge should definitely be on your list. The town is already incredibly well known for its Roman history and heritage but did you know that the streets are also lined with some of the very best pubs in Northumberland. So, if a cold pint after a long day of exploring sounds like your kind of holiday, make sure to read on.
Note: Make sure to book your stay at Seal Cottage, Hexham House Apartments, Farriers Cottage, Shellbraes Farmhouse & Studio, and Roses Bower, just a short drive away from the town.
Now if you’re looking for somewhere truly unique to enjoy a pint, (or more specifically a cool, brewed-on-site pint of ale from Allendale Brew co) you must head to the Pele Tower in the centre of the village which has been converted into a bar. There’s outdoor seating available, or you can venture up the tower to find snug seated areas to enjoy your beverage while marvelling at the architecture which surrounds you.
The Black Bull
Roaring fires, wooden beams and hearty meals, The Black Bull is a dog-friendly spacious bar and restaurant based within a traditional building which dates back to 1755. You’ll always receive a warm welcome from their lovely staff, but make sure to book ahead as tables in the restaurant are in demand.
The Angel of Corbridge
If you’re looking for a classic Sunday Roast, then we have to recommend The Angel of Corbridge, soak up the atmosphere with wood burning fires inside or head out to the pub’s beer garden to enjoy a drink or meal al fresco. If you’re not too hungry, they also provide bar snacks including our favourite deep fried stuffing! They encourage booking so if you’re thinking of visiting while staying with us head to the pub’s website here.
If you’re heading to Corbridge by train, then just a few steps from the station is The Dyvels. Serving up classic comfort meals in a warm welcoming setting. The pub is also based near the Roman Wall, where you can explore the history of this small Northumberland town. Heading into spring and summer seasons, they have a wonderful beer garden and are dog friendly!
If you enjoy sampling locally brewed beverages then head to The Wheatsheaf. The pub offers a range of local gins, whiskeys, rums and bottled ales all from across the region. Also, if you have any sports fans in your party, who refuse to miss a match, they also show both Sky and BT Sport fixtures.
Who doesn’t love a bit of Karaoke? Based on Hill Street in Corbridge, The Blue Bell is your pub to go to if you’re looking to belt out your favourite tunes. Or if you’re wanting to sit back and enjoy some entertainment they often have fantastic live performances from local artists. This friendly local pub is dog friendly and has outside heated seating.
