Blue Scrumpy left this review about Pilot Inn

The Pilot is a backstreet local, a little away from the centre of town. I made a beeline for the front room with access to the bar (to the right-hand side of the central corridor). So, I didn't get chance to explore the other rooms. I assume this is the most popular drinking area, as it was fairly busy and meant I had to share a large table with what appeared to be a fellow beer/pub nut, who proceeded to list and talk about seemingly every pub in Northumberland! Whether there was even anybody else in the other rooms, I'll never know!

3 real ales were on - Rigg & Furrow Run Hop Run, Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted and Morland Old Speckled Hen. The real cider was Thistly Cross Whisky Cask.

Worth getting (stumbling in my case) out of town to.

Terraced backstreet pub, well-away from the others in town – if you’re crawling then make sure to take it in either first or make time for it be last. Pretty unspoilt inside (CAMRA listed - regional), two rooms off a tiled entrance corridor with an unlit rear room behind. The bar is in the right-hand room; nice and cosy with pub carpet, fabric settles, attractive lower bar, boxed wood walls, 70s fake beams (?) and a lot of hanging brassware. I visited twice; first time round the three pumps had beers from Loch Lomond, Great Eastern and Hadrian Farne Island (pump tired BNSS 2.5). A swift one before my train home a few days later found a much better (3.5) pint of Great Northeastern Golden Tap. I liked the pub but the cask turnover seems a bit sporadic. Beware that Scottish notes can end-up in your change here which isn’t much good if you’re just about to get your train back down south!

Comfortable locals' pub in backstreets. There is a bar room on the right with a lounge opposite, and a small snug behind. The decor takes you back 30 years or so but overall it is pleasant enough. Outside there is a garden at the rear. A changing selection of well kept beers warrant regular GBG listing. On this visit: Rudgate Ruby Mild; Hadrian Farne Island and Great North Eastern Golden Tap. A good place to enjoy a nice pint.

Dropped in with a few minutes to kill before my train. The place was quite lively, with locals calling in for a pint on their way home from work. Three real ales on the bar: Wells Bombardier, Caledonian Deuchars IPA and Broughton Exciseman 80/-. I went for the latter, which was ok but nothing special. Worth a visit if you're doing the other real ale pubs in the town.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Pilot Inn

This is a regional heritage pub and is a quick five minute walk from the Castle Hotel near the train station. The landlord was friendly and chatty and was proud to show us old photos of the pub and also gave us a guided look around. The pub consists of the main bar and front room, over on the right of entrance. A smaller room on the left with open fireplace and a snug behind the bar. The entrance has a fine display of mosaic floor tiles and the main bar area has a display of nautical instruments across the ceiling. Three ales on our visit, we went for the Cameron's Gold Bullion and the Hadrian and Border Buster Ganads.

Friendly local pub in the 2010 Good Beer Guide. Has different rooms and interesting artefacts. There are darts and quoit teams and music nights. Enjoyed the Wells Bombardier and Wylam Turbinia 10 years on. The food was superb too, great Steak and Ale wedge.
