Hello and Welcome to The Pack Horse Inn


The Pack Horse Inn is an English Country Pub offering Bed and Breakfast, set in the picturesque village of Ellingham in Northumberland surrounded by beautiful countryside.

Our brilliant chef, Gabor Pustzai; crowned North East Chef of The Year 2013, changes the menu daily, offering delicious home-made food prepared  with locally sourced, seasonal produce where ever possible.  We keep our kitchen supplied with fresh vegetables from our very own vegetable garden.

The Pack Horse Inn is the perfect country retreat and provides an ideal base for exploring our beautiful Northumbrian coastline and castles.  It’s also a great location for guests attending weddings at some of the areas larger venues such as Ellingham Hall, Doxford Hall and Newton Hall.

We refurbished the pub in March 2014, now cosy new furnishing and a totally renovated restaurant are among the many improvements providing a lovely dining atmosphere for lunch or dinner. In summer you can also enjoy our lovely garden, which we landscaped just this year to create  a pleasant outdoor space.  We were careful to retain the character of the pub so you can still see over 180 jugs hanging from its exposed beams, while the beautiful flagstone floor and open fire completes the scene.

The Pack Horse Inn is dog friendly in the bar and in the snug which offers wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. Regrettably we cannot allow dogs into our restaurant. You are able to enjoy great food, drink and log fires, whether it’s for a special occasion or after a long day out walking in Northumberland.

We serve real ale, we always have Black Sheep together with a locally brewed guest ale and a fine selection of wine.
