A traditional country pub close to the popular Hadrian’s Wall path. Although opened up, the interior still has the feel of three distinct rooms. There’s a games room at the back with a pool table, the bar room is cosy and welcoming with a roaring fire in winter and there is a separate dining room. Some interesting historical State Management Scheme documents adorn the walls. The Drovers is very much a pub at the heart of its community. It also has a well-deserved reputation for excellent food and as an oasis for lots of different and sometimes obscure (for the area) real ales.
