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.

“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.

For 31 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).
