The Hog’s Head Inn is a modern country pub with rooms

Eat, Drink, Sleep and Explore

Welcome to the Hog’s Head Inn at Alnwick, a perfect place to eat, drink, sleep and explore from.

A silver award-winner in the 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, the Northumberland coast, its castles and the stunning countryside of England’s most northerly county. If you’re looking for accommodation 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, it’s 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.

A mecca for meat lovers, look out for the speciality steaks, all cooked to perfection on our state-of-the-art broiler. A wide range of family-favourites are also available to keep the whole team happy.
