Thankfully, there’s no shortage of excellent restaurants in and around Hexham where you can book up and sample anything from traditional British pub fayre to Mexican street food.

These restaurants have all received top reviews on TripAdvisor.

Here are five of the top rates ones across the county to choose from.


5 stars on TripAdvisor

Northumberland’s only Michelin Star restaurant. Located in the Hadrian Hotel in Wall, it serves Nordic cuisine and booking is essential. Customers have called it ‘marvellous’, a ‘must-visit’, and an ‘amazing experience’.

Little Mexico

5 stars on TripAdvisor

Little Mexico is right in the centre of Hexham and offers, unsurprisingly, Mexican street food. There’s no outdoor seating at present, but burritos and tacos are easily portable and can be enjoyed in the Sele or while walking through the town. Customers like ‘decent sized portions’ and ‘brilliant value for money’. 

Rose and Crown Slaley

4.5 stars on TripAdvisor

Featured in Guardian’s 50 best pubs in Britain, The Rose and Crown is community owned and run. It serves British pub food and has both vegetarian and vegan options. Customers say food and service are both excellent.


5 stars on TripAdvisor

Not yet fully reopened, Cilantro is still operating as a takeaway. It serves Indian tapas and is the top restaurant in Hexham town centre according to TripAdvisor. Customers have said it is the ‘best takeaway ever’ and they ‘absolutely love the food.’

Salute Coffee Bar

4.5 stars on TripAdvisor

Salute’s friendly service and Italian small plates can be enjoyed in a courtyard between St Mary’s Chare and Beaumont Street. Stop for a cappuccino in the morning or something stronger later in the day. Customers love the freshly cooked pasta and friendly service.
