Off the beaten track, half-way between Ponteland & Morpeth, Horton Grange is a traditional, country-style restaurant with all the necessary decorative trappings; swagged sash windows, antiques & impressive lawned gardens. Aimed at a clientele which errs on the side of conservative, diners can expect a hearty menu of good modern classics. Roast saddle of rabbit is one such standout dish, served with a poached pear, subtly flavoured with ginger. A comfortable yet impressive restaurant, Horton Grange reputedly excels in its sweet menu, which tends to be dictated by season & features such mouthwatering delights as hot chocolate & banana bread pudding with Horlicks ice cream. But be warned, there isn’t a huge amount of seating & guests tend to want to take their time, so booking in advance is a must.
