A medieval vaulted chamber etched by stout stone walls, afire with candle-style-ambience and warmed by the welcomed chatter of moorland travellers; there is truly no other pub quite like The Crypt.
Add to the mix a hearty stock of Northumbrian ales – including our very own ‘Lord Crewe Brew’ on tap. Throw in a rather thoughtful selection of cracking wines. Top with a good few measures of highland whisky, then spice it up with a Geordie cocktail or two...and there we have it - the finest free house for miles around.
Oh and not forgetting of course, chefs ‘Bar Bait.’ Otherwise known as Northumberland tapas, it fills up our trusty black board with squasage kind of snacks daily.
When the summer-tide arrives, we spill out from The Crypt into our pretty pub garden. Spoiled with the back drop of the North Pennine moors, it's primed for quaffing ales in the sunshine, accompanied by a delicious menu of meats from chefs trusty ‘Big Green Egg’ barbie.
