Hello and Welcome to The Pack Horse Inn


The Pack Horse Inn is a Traditional English Country Pub set in the picturesque village of Ellingham in Northumberland. We are a dog friendly pub and we offer Bed and Breakfast and delicious home-made meals. We are surrounded by beautiful countryside and are conveniently close to both hill walking in the National Park and coastal exploration on Northumberland’s aptly awarded AONB.

Our brilliant chef Christopher Wells changes the menu daily, offering delicious home-made food prepared with locally sourced, seasonal produce wherever possible.  We keep our kitchen supplied with fresh vegetables from our very own vegetable garden and meat reared by our landlord or neighbouring farmers.

The Pack Horse Inn is the perfect retreat if you’re looking for a few days away; and is also a great location for guests attending weddings at venues such as Ellingham Hall, Doxford Hall, Doxford Barns and Newton Hall.

Our Dining Room, Snug and Garden Room all offer an inviting dining atmosphere for Lunch or Evening Meals. In summer you can also enjoy our lovely Beer Garden and in the winter a roaring fire will be ready to greet you.  In recent renovations 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.

We serve Real Ales including Black Sheep Bitter, Timothy Taylor’s Landlord and a local guest Pale Ale. We stock an eclectic range of Gin, including Northumberland’s very own Hepple Gin, and we house a fine selection of Wine’s from around the world.

We look forward to welcoming you.
