Food was good but a bit pricey for what you get 3.50 for a roll and sausage is on the steep side.food was good and they had some nice cakes for morning coffee.cosy and staff were friendly but other customers who were regulars were not so friendly. Not much parking near by in busy seasons but plenty up the hill... More

Felt that our custom wasn't wanted, staff too busy talking too each other. I could only have a cup of coffee as didn't cater for gluten free diets

OK the course condition is not mint but the location overlooking the huge beach and Dunstanburgh Castle cannot be bettered. The ladies who run the clubhouse are extremely friendly and knowledgeable and the rates provide good value for money. Overall, a great place to play links golf.

We just popped in here for lunch before going for a walk on the beach. The eating area is plain but pleasant enough. The lady serving had a really surly attitude, really unfriendly.

Decent pub snacks at a reasonable price. Nice to sit outside. Didn't play golf, just wanted a drink and some eats after a long walk from the Castle. Cheery staff.

No idea about the golfing (I don't play!), we used the club as a convenient place to park and enjoy hot drinks and cakes after a walk to Dunstanburgh castle. No complaints at all and a lovely location.

Great links Golf Course difficult but very enjoyable with great views and by the sea! Could be more of a challenge in autumn winter months but we had a great time and sunshine when the weather forecast was for rain showers.

Course was in excellent condition with lovely views of the castle. It was an excellent test of golf. Food at the club house was very good.
