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!”

For 30 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).
