Review on Barrasford Arms

Within easy trekking distance of Hadrian's Wall, this Victorian sandstone pub (circa 1870) stands on the fringes of Barrasford village with fine views of medieval Haughton Castle in the distance. Chef/proprietor Tony Binks has a good reputation in these parts, and the place has been going from strength to strength since his arrival in 2006.

Binks trained with Albert Roux, but there's nothing over-fancy about his food, which still has strong English roots. Braised beef rump in Newcastle Brown Ale is a typically down-to-earth signature dish, although you might also feast on show-cooked lamb shank with champ or seared organic salmon with poached asparagus and sauce vierge. Kick off with crispy duck, potato and watercress salad, and close the show with warm liquid-centred chocolate cake with caramel ice cream. Hand-pulled ales and modestly priced wines are suitable accompaniments.

The Barrasford Arms has lost none of its pubbiness along the way, with regular quoits tournaments, darts matches, a ladies luncheon club and vegetable competitions ensuring a regular local crowd. Comfortable bedrooms, too.
