The Cask Marque accredited Salmon Inn is an attractive stone-built community mainstream pub in the quaint Northumberland village of East Ord. It has a great reputation for well-looked-after cask ales and for good, home-cooked food, which needs to be an integral part of the offer moving forwards. The Salmon benefits from a good local trade, while also being a hot spot for tourists in spring and summer. The fantastic beer garden is a key draw.
The Salmon benefited from investment just over 2 years ago and has a smart yet traditional look throughout its open plan trading space. The prominent bar leads onto a cosy snug area next to an open fire, which many walkers, cyclists and other visitors to the area really appreciate. There’s also a small dining area with 26 covers during busy dining services. Outside, there’s a rear patio area and a large beer garden that’s big enough to install a marquee for large local summer functions. The pub provides parking for 12 cars, a smoking solution and free WiFi.
The domestic accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
East Ord is a village about 2 miles south-west of Berwick-upon-Tweed, which itself lies about halfway between Newcastle upon Tyne and Edinburgh. Berwick is a popular destination for tourists and many head for the Manor House and grounds, which are now part of Ord House Country Park, a quiet landscaped caravan park that’s just a few minutes’ walk from the pub.
Idea for someone who can embrace the local community and give them a real reason to come to the pub, to both eat and drink. Experience of a good quality food offer and working in kitchens would be beneficial.
