Summary

“Perched on the edge of mid-Northumberland’s dramatic coastline, this former pub opposite the world-famous L Robson & Sons ‘Craster Kipper’ smokehouse” (as per the name, seafood features heavily on the menu) offers “great cooking” that’s “excellent value” too.

Summary

This low-beamed pub has been a feature of this fishing village since 1847, but is even more “superb” after a refurb’ several years back added an airier, sea-view conservatory and outdoor terrace; the main event – the likes of “great kippers and crab sandwiches” but “good luck getting a table!”
