Review on The Feathers Inn

Award-winning local food hero and crusading chef Rhian Cradock is really making an impact in the North East, and has helped to transform the Feathers into a very special gastropub devoted to all things local. 'We should be as proud of our food (heritage and present) as our football team', is his message, and he lists up to 60 local suppliers on the back of his daily changing menus.

The stone-built pub itself is high up overlooking the rugged countryside of the Cheviots, and inside it is all ancient oak beams, settles and stone walls bedecked with photos of old village life. There are always real ales on draught (local, of course) and traditional pub games to play.

For those who want to eat, the kitchen delivers a raft of dishes old and new. with provenance and food miles defining what's on offer. Rhian makes his own black pudding and serves it with free-range egg and devilled gravy, or you might kick off with roast teal with Hedley beetroot and watercress. Mains bring crispy Ravensworth Grange Middle White pork cheek with Cumberland sausage and devilled tongue, or roast Billy Fails rack of lamb with hot-pot potatoes, or even wild salmon from the south Tyne. Finish with cracking Northumbrian cheeses or hot chocolate fondant with blackberries in sloe gin.
