A great reputation for beautifully cooked food.

Good Pub food the way it should be!

Whether you are visiting for a drink and quick bite to eat or a leisurely evening with friends you’re sure to appreciate the friendly service, great food and good wines and ales. A secure outdoor area is available which is ideal for family dining. The Ridley Arms is a favourite with locals and tourists alike and is an ideal stopping off point when visiting The Lady of the North -Northumberlandia or simply enjoying scenic Northumberland.


Our chef has decided to give pride of place to traditional dishes, giving them his own personal style. There is an original and delicious angle to every dish.


There is no pretention here, just good quality, lovingly prepared and well presented food. Good old fashioned hospitality.


Our bar is perfect for quietly sipping a well earned cask ale or chilled glass of sauvignon blanc.
