ABOUT

Community owned since 2020, when over twenty thousand volunteer hours went into a massive refurbishment, The Gun at Ridsdale is a traditional country inn set in the heart of the beautiful Northumberland countryside.  We have four  completely new en suite rooms, a bar stocked to the gunnels with local ales and fine wines and we serve great home cooked food. When you're here - for however long - we want you to feel part of our little community.
