Twice Brewed Inn

The Twice Brewed is set amongst some of the most breathtaking scenery in England and stands in the shadows of Steel Rigg, without doubt one of the most dramatic parts of Hadrian’s Wall.

The Inn is situated on the B6318 (The Military Road) midway between Newcastle Upon Tyne in the East and Carlisle in the West and is close to all the main Roman sites – Vindolanda, Housesteads and The Roman Army Museum. The Inn is on the popular Pennine Way route and welcomes walkers with a drying room and other facilities. We are also on the Hadrians Cycleway (Route 72) and near the Sandstone Way cycle route.

We are 4 miles away from Haltwhistle train station and 15 miles away from Hexham train station.

Bed & Breakfast

The Inn provides comfortable accommodation all with en-suite facilities.

Relax in our bar in front of a roaring fire where you can enjoy real ales, beers from around the world, an international wine selection and a rather more locally themed menu showcasing the very best of local produce.

We also offer pre-booked breakfasts to non-residents so if you have friends staying with us or if you fancy treating yourself and letting someone else do the work, then The Twice Brewed is where you need to be – all we ask is that you book in advance so we don’t run out of bacon!

The Restaurant

We provide home cooked food, locally sourced where possible and available all day in both the bar and the restaurant.  Our calendar of events sees regular special menus, offers and seasonal produce.  We also have a brand new Private Function Room available for hire so whether you’re celebrating a wedding, a Birthday, your retirement, graduation or anything else, The Twice Brewed is where you need to be.

Other facilities on offer include; accommodation, beer garden, coach and car parking, cycle storage and we do of course, welcome dogs.

Origins of the Name

The Twice Brewed Inn

There are several stories which explain the name of the inn; the most romantic story tells that on the eve of the Battle of Hexham in 1464, Yorkist foot soldiers demanded their beer be brewed again because it lacked its usual and vital fighting strength. The ploy certainly worked as the Lancastrian army fled after an early morning raid.  A more prosaic explanation is that 18th-century farmers tended to brew (and serve) weak ale, and hence “twice brewed” meant the Inn offered stronger ale.  A third theory is that Hadrian’s Wall snakes its way across the brows, or “brews”, of two hills where there is also a meeting of a pair of drovers’ roads.

The antiquarian William Hutton walked the length of Hadrian’s Wall in 1801 and stayed one night at the Twice Brewed inn. He describes how a pudding was cooked “as big as a peck measure” and “a piece of beef … perhaps equal to half a calf.”  

Whichever story you choose to believe, it cannot be debated that the Inn sits on one of the most spectacular parts of Hadrian’s Wall, a perfect spot to rest and refresh yourself after a long days walking.

“When we stayed at the Twice Brewed Inn the service was exceptional. Staff went out of their way to accommodate every request and to ensure that our family celebration was wonderful. Rooms were comfortable and the food was delicious, but the extra mile that every member of staff went to is what made our stay so special.
Special thanks go to Carla and Catherine and the rest of the team for everything that you did for us. If you’re having a special family celebration we highly recommend this venue.”

“I recently visited Hadrian’s Wall with my family and we completed our trip with dinner at this pub. I noticed they brewed their own beer and spoke to the master brewer who was a delight. She took time to explain things and recommended a beer that suited me perfectly. The food was terrific and the staff were really friendly and even looked after the baby while we ate. A great experience, well done all of the staff. We didn’t stay in the hotel but based on this experience I would.”
