Fabulous sandwiches. Very busy but food served in good time. Friendly and helpful staff especially Gavin(waiter) who helped with getting a drink without having to wait in a long queue for my wife who was having a hypo.

Recommended by friends and not disappointed, booking is essential as it is a very popular restaurant. Service excellent, food superbly cook and presented, accompanied by views of the sea all go to make an experience to be remembered.

This pub/restaurant has an absolutely superb setting, interesting menu and wonderful decor. Our first meal out on this family holiday and so expectations were high. They could not offer a table in the restaurant with the fabulous views over the sea until 8:30pm but we were assured the first sitting would be over by then. The table wasn't ready and... More

Having just walked 15 miles along the beautiful Northumberland coast we hoped to complete the day with a delicious meal in the reputedly excellent Jolly Fisherman. On arriving at 3.50 we were advised that the restaurant was fully booked that evening, which was fair enough but that food would be served in the bar area from 5.30. We decided to... More

This is one of the best pubs I have ever been. The garden looks over the beautiful village of Craster, the sea and up towards Dunstanburgh Castle. We had sandwiches which were very tasty with delicious coleslaw and Kettle Chips. Would highly recommend a visit !

Nicely situated at the sea, this place offers fantastic views. The food is of good quality, the fish platter was quite nice. The freshly baked bread was definately a highlight. There are some nice beers on the menu. This place tends to be quite crowded because of its nice location (directly next to the Northumberland Coastal Path and North Sea... More
