“Great seafood platters” and “wonderful smoked fish from the smokehouse next door” are the standout menu items at this “cosy place 10 metres from the sea” – a proper pub with “good ales too”, that has welcomed guests since early Victorian times. The beer garden at the front has views along the Northumberland coast that take in Dunstanburgh Castle.

“Lovely, relaxed pub with adjoining restaurant” in a “wonderful setting” on the Northumberland coast that’s welcomed visitors for 175 years. These days, it serves “imaginative fish and seafood at good prices” – local treats include Craster-landed lobster and Lindisfarne oysters.

This “lovely” family-run pub in a “wonderful setting” on the bracing Northumberland coast was originally opened in 1847 by Charles Archbold. The fish-centric menu includes Craster kippers from the L Robson & Sons smokehouse, just opposite. Top Tips: “the fantastic queen scallop popcorn” – and “do walk to Embleton Bay while you’re there!”.

A “lovely-looking pub in a beautiful location”, next to a harbour on the spirit-raising mid-Northumberland coastline, and opposite the iconic L Robson & Sons ‘Craster Kipper’ smokehouse; “wonderful” fish is the order of the day, unsurprisingly, with both smoked versions and salmon sarnies exemplary.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
