BritStops 710 Nettles, Ginger and a spot of Comfrey

Date of Stay June 16th 2012

Now here’s a nice little spot at a micro brewery if you happen to be travelling through the North East.  There’s a restaurant (didn’t try it but the menu and food looked good), farm shop and very well thought our children’s area.  Highlight for me was the bar and beer brewed on premise and I highly recommend the beer made from nettles with added ginger and comfrey – brilliantly refreshing.  Apologies for the photo which was taken around 10 in the evening – it wasn’t as windswept and wet as it looks!

BritStops does it again in terms of another great location.  You need to be aware that whilst there is definitely space for vehicles over 30′, the approach requires around 1 mile of single track travelling with not many passing places – however, there were also not may vehicles.  We had no problem.  Here is a somewhat cheerier view of the bar.  As usual, no precise location, you need to join to enjoy!

    Have been to this Britstop, and your right, it’s a lovely stop over with great beer and food that we did sample. Cheap as chips as well for the food we found. Will definitely return when we are up the country next.

      Thanks for the comment. Yes, I agree, in fact we are thinking of stopping again this Friday and having a meal on our way to Alnwick to see Miriam Margolies in Dickens Women. Sold out apparently and good weekend in prospect.

        Well if you do end up going back, I would thoroughly recommend the food there. Enjoy your trip wherever you stay.
