Harden's survey result
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.
“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.
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!”
This “brilliantly located” pub “with sea views (and a terrace) over the water” (“try to get a window seat”) serves “the freshest fish imaginable, prepared with flair and obvious care”; “if you like crab, then pay a visit!”
Jolly Fisherman Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Lovely looking pub in a beautiful location. Willing if slightly chaotic service. Cooking of fish, given location next to a harbour, decidedly average. Shame."
"Packed full even on a cold February Saturday lunchtime, this is a very good pub to have if walking either north of Craster from Dunstanburgh Castle or from Howick House to the south along the gorgeous coastal path here. Lack of competition probably makes it easy to sit back and let the customers flow through and service was pretty unfriendly from harassed too few staff. But the food was very well done - someone in the kitchen knows what they are doing. Don't let the standards drop."
