The Greenhead Hotel exterior, situated

Situated on the Northumberland and Cumbrian border, with Hadrian's wall on our doorstep, the hotel offers a cosy drinking area with locally sourced ale, a chic restaurant serving homemade classic pub food with a modern twist and 7 newly refurbished dog friendly en-suite guest bedrooms, a large & spacious function suite, alongside a 48 bed Hostel, ample parking available as well as EV charging points providing the perfect base for your trip.

Our staff are important to us & as of October 2022 we have made the decision to close 2 days a week during the quieter months so our team can have a structured work schedule & better work-life balance.


About Us

The Greenhead Hotel was taken over in June 2020 by local proprietor Jordan Dodwell & his partner Anna Pearson. After a complete refurb they opened the doors on the 14th August 2020.

Jordan & Anna have many years' experience running businesses in the hospitality/tourism industry. In their portfolio, they have Vercelli Restaurant in Hexham, ran by Jordan and his family and Hexham Holiday Homes, which has a number of self catering properties in the Tyne Valley.

Our Team

Anna is hands on and you will most likely meet her on your visit to The Greenhead Hotel. Her passion & love for the hotel can be felt throughout her team and they will ensure your visit will be one to remember.


Head Chef, Dan, & his young, eager team use the finest ingredients available using local butchers, suppliers and even forage in the nearby woodland. During the shooting season we source game from the local shoot which features on our seasonal menus.
