obviously many changes over the years but an excellent choice for peace and relaxation. Staff excellent and very helpful. Food good both in quality and quantity, chef obviously enjoys his cooking. Brought back many happy memories of my childhood from visiting places i have not seen for 50 years. Will return!!

Great place in the centre of Bamburgh. However I had the same problem as last year when calling in for a ploughmans lunch. Ham, coleslaw and pickle missing, asked the waitress if the meal was correct, she apologised and returned with the missing items, well nearly, we have ran out of coleslaw she says and whisked away without a hint...

Many years ago I came to Bamburgh and stopped at the "traditional" Lord Crewe Arms pub/hotel ........ and this last weekend mid March I treated my big sister (it is her birthday soon) to a long weekend break in Northumberland - and of course decided to make reservations to stay there. WHAT A SURPRISE! I was told that extensive updates... More

Have just returned from 3 days at the Lord Crewe. This is a small hotel in an ideal spot in Bamburgh. The evening meals were excellent both in quality and quantity. The overwhelming impression of our stay was how obliging and helpful all the staff were. Nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely return.

Wife and I spent a Saturday night here as a bit of a treat in the gloomy New Year. Room was immaculate, food was well above average and the atmosphere suitably quirky. Service was excellent - attentive without being intrusive. The fact that it is a "bit out of the way" just added to the experience.

Lovely food, pleasant surroundings with attentive staff. Good choice of food and drinks in a warm venue. Don't sit next to the door, it can be cold in January. Food was hot and tasty. Unusual choice of vegetables and meat/fish beautifully done. Presentation excellent. Would recommend. 10/10

We enjoyed a lovely short break. The hotel is ideally placed for visits to the sights in the area. It has good facilities, not just in the rooms (tea, coffee, TV, powerful shower, etc.) but also incorporating a restaurant, bar and tea room. The room was comfortable, even in the freezing cold weather of December. There was some noise from... More

Greeted by a very pleasant bar staff and a roaring fire. Got a good seat near to fire and window had a half decent pint. Our lunch was initially delivered to the wrong table. The fish and chips were very ordinary. Mine was huge and greasy my wife's was rather small, over cooked and presented upside down, plus no Pinot... More

We just popped in for lunch. Though I have never stayed at the hotel, I have been on other occasions for lunch. However when we arrived today i could not believe the transformation. It's absolutely lovely, the decor is fab. All the staff were very nice and very importantly of course lunch was excellent
