4Self Classified Hotel Ratings explained
John Martin Street, Haydon Bridge, , Hexham, NE47 6AB
The Anchor is a charming characterful attractive Grade 11 listed hotel, pub and restaurant located on a picturesque riverside location on the banks of the Tyne. Only 5 minutes away from Langley Castle. The menu at the Anchor offers a quality selection of British dishes loving made with locally sourced ingredients. The extensive menu offers 3 course meals as well as lighter snacks and sharing platters washed down with hand pulled ales, beers and lagers spirits or a glass of wine. Situated on the Bridge of Haydon Bridge (which originally dates back to the 1300's). The Anchor Hotel is a building steeped in history and it has been a Hotel in various guises for many years. Originating as a Jacobite Cross relating to medieval settlements,the Roman occupation and Jacobite revolutions the Hotel was also once a court house complete with hanging facilities outside in what is now the car park and garden. The hotel rises out of the river Tyne enjoying a perfect position for direct access to the river, and lovely views. The salmon leap over the weir and sandy beaches and swimming holes are also at this point. Whatever the weather there is a good vantage point and a lovely aspect watching the river rage in flood in the winter or paddling in calmer waters. The Hotel has a very friendly cosy bar and lounge. Or in finer weather enjoy the river views in our alfresco decking area. Food is freshly prepared and served Mon-Sat noon 'til nine. our legendary Snday lunch is served 12 until 'sold out', (around 6pm.) We cater for functions and meetings and have private rooms for your special occasions, which we will tailor to suit your wishes. The hotel has nine rooms and is ideally located for exploring Northumberland's wonderful countryside. We are surrounded by Heritage sites including Hadrian's Wall, National Trust Properties, The Lake District, the coast and castles of Northumberland as well as The Metro Centre shopping experience all within an easy drive or train ride.

The only reason I have knocked down the "quality of the room" is because there wasn't a full length mirror, which would have been nice when getting ready. I managed ok with the small one above the sink though. The room was clean and well presented. Even had a little "brew station". We stayed here for a "roof over our heads" as we were only in the area for a short while. It was well placed and the cooked breakfast was impressive.

Great little hotel and great service
We attended a wedding at the Langley Castle Hotel and needed to stay for two nights. The Langley Castle Hotel wanted £340 for two nights stay so we decided to book this hotel instead as the price was less than half and only 5 minutes away from the wedding venue. We came across some other people staying here that were attending the wedding anyway, so it worked well for us.
This little hotel is situated in a quiet village just by the river. The rooms are good, comfortable and clean. The hotel has a well-stocked cosy bar with drinks at competitive prices and the owner and staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.
Apart from the breakfast, which is included in the price, we didn't eat at the hotel. However, the breakfast was very good and the huge locally sourced sausages were to die for.
We were not disappointed with this hotel and we had a wonderful time. We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend it.

Not a hotel. It's a pub with rooms.
The room was cold on arrival. It was a windy day and even after closing the window it was still draughty. No curtains just a blind that didn't close properly. Deep window recess meant I had to climb to reach window or blind cord. Room dusty. Sticky rings on bedside drawers- still there when I left! Bathroom smelled awful. Had to wash one of the cups before use as dirty teaspoon had been put on saucer. Other cup had sticky residue. Nearly asked for bill first night. Not happy to be woken up at about 6am by beer delivery (I think). No warning and no apology. Food was good. The staff were helpful and friendly but it is run as a pub with rooms so don't expect hotel service.

Cheap alternative to Langley Castle for a Wedding
Positives - Close to Langley Castle and a decent breakfast.
Negatives - Uncomfortable bed, single glazed windows so it was quite noisey, no heating in the room until we turned the radiator on (even though when we arrived the person that showed us to our room said it would come on automatically), so we came back to a cold room.

Very good at looking after residents
The owners cannot do enough to look after residents - even putting on extra food on Sunday afternoon to make sure they don't miss out on lunch. Breakfast is excellent and the staff generally friendly and attentive.
