Welcome to the award-winning Hog's Head Inn - Alnwick

The Hog’s Head Inn is the ideal base to explore both Northumberland’s beautiful coastline and its stunning countryside.

"The Hog’s Head Inn is easily one of the best of its type I have ever had the pleasure of staying in."

Neil Cameron, The Evening Chronicle

A silver award-winner in the recent North East England Tourism Awards, The Hog’s Head Inn in Alnwick is named after the tavern in the Harry Potter books and films. The Hog’s Head Inn is a few minutes’ drive from Alnwick Castle, which doubled as Hogwarts in the first two boy-wizard films – and also as Brancaster Castle in Downton Abbey.

The Hog’s Head Inn is perfectly placed to explore the world-famous Alnwick Garden, Northumberland coast, its castles and the stunning scenery of England’s most northerly county. If you’re looking for accommodation in Northumberland that’s great value for money, offers a more laid back approach than a hotel and better service than simply self-catering, look no further than The Hog’s Head Inn.

With its 53 spacious en-suite bedrooms, The Hog’s Head is ideal for families and larger groups looking to stay together in Northumberland. Children will love the new ‘Hogshead Castle’ play area while you relax and enjoy the pub’s outstanding food.
