Originally a drovers inn conveniently situated just a few miles from the market town of Hexham,the Rat is an historic 18th century inn with a colourful past.
Since Phil and Karen took over in 2007 the pub has also earned an enviable reputation for its locally sourced, award winning food.
It also sells Pennine Walker - official Pennine Way cask ale. A donation is made from each sale to support the Trail.
