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.

“A perfect place to stay after a long walk along the Wall. The staff were really friendly and welcoming and even helped with washing our muddy walking gear. Good food, excellent breakfast, warm clean rooms. Micro brewery on site! Perfect and welcoming end to a long day. Highly recommended.”

“If visiting Hadrian’s Wall and the surrounding historical sights, this was a wonderful inn to use as a home base. The rooms seemed newly remodelled and very comfortable. The inn had a wonderful Sunday dinner. The breakfast in the dining room was a great way to get the day started. And for those that were going to be sightseeing the entire day, they even offered a sack lunch the evening before that could be pre-ordered, which we did. The staff was also one of the friendliest we had encountered on our trip. I would highly recommend staying at Twice Brewed Inn.”

“It was a lovely surprise on entering the pub, fresh and warm surroundings, very nicely decorated and a good friendly atmosphere. We tried the cider and a couple of the ales. Food was piping hot and nicely presented. Brought to us by the friendly young server. It was a very quiet night and a very lively group of walkers decided to sit right next to us…’Oh no’ I thought as we were still eating land there were lots of other seating to choose from. However they proved to be hilarious company and started chatting and telling jokes and included in their banter. It turned out to be a great evening and we were glad they’d sat next to us. Upon leaving we said our goodbye’s and made our way through the pitch black car park and WOW! The sky was full of the brightest stars and constellations we have ever seen. This is in a ‘Dark Skies’ location and absolutely perfect.”
