About us

The award winning Barrasford Arms is our local country pub and restaurant, with 7 bedrooms

How it started

The Barrasford Arms pub dates back to the 1800’s. Set overlooking Houghton Castle, this picturesque pub not only serves great local ales, but also top quality local Northumbrian food, using ingredients from the polytunnel and gardens out the back.

With lots to see and do in the area you could make your time away last even longer by staying in one of out seven en-suite bedrooms. A great fishing stream just down the road, Hadrian’s wall only a few miles away, set in the heart of Northumberland only around 20 miles from Kielder Forest and only 8 miles from the historical town of Hexham.

Michael and Victoria Eames took over the Barrasford Arms in June 2017 and hope to make you feel very welcome during your time there. Michael has a wealth of experience as a top chef. From starting out at his local Northumberland pub as a pot wash, to working his way up at restaurants such as Fisherman’s Lodge in Newcastle, and Bouchon in Hexham, before coming the executive head chef at Slaley Hall Hotel, and most recently Malmaison Hotel in Dundee, Michael’s simple, elegant and well cooked food full of flavour will not disappoint.

In their short time at the pub they have already won North East Tourism Pub of the Year 2018, Bronze for North East Boutique Hotel of the Year, retained an AA 1 Rosette, gained AA 4* rating for our accommodation, and also listed in some of the prestigious food guides, including the The Good Food Guide and The Good Pub Guide.  

We do allow dogs inside the pub in the bar area as well as a beautiful outside seating area in our garden overlooking the North Tyne valley where dogs are more than welcome if you wish to eat or drink outdoors. We do not however allow dogs within the dining rooms or bedrooms.
