Went at a busy time and did not book. The floor manager found us a table though. We were warned of an hour wait for food so ordered simple meals that came in 20 mins. Good ales and good atmosphere. Imagine it is very different outside of peak holiday periods. Nice village, nice beer garden and reasonable prices. Worth a... More

OK food, but quite expensive Disjointed service at the bar, would we call back ? Probably not ! Lovely beer garden. Pate for starter's was certainly not locally produced and at £5.95 with half slice of toast I thought was a little expensive

Portion sizes were a little overtime the top, my husbands fish looked like it would feed all 3 of us, but we all enjoyed what we had at reasonable prices. Staff were very pleasant. We would go again if ever in the area again

Very nice, welcoming pub with en-suite rooms. The rooms are amazing, very large, very comfortable, and very well decorated. Slight problem with the shower, but I think that is a water pressure thing (and a shower screen, so no shower curtain - hurrah, see other posts). Food and service in the pub was excellent, even though the pub was packed... More

Book and you won't be disappointed. Try to turn up and expect a table swiftly, then think again. Read the reviews about 'chaos' & 'disorganised' etc. Don't agree with that. Busy, yes, chaos, no. Vibrant yet welcoming. Friendly helpful staff. Excellent sea food. Hake/salmon/king pawn excellent. Fish and chips as good as the Magpie in Whitby. (Yes, that good). Brie... More

We visited on Friday evening (14th) we hadn't booked which was our fault but on arrival at 18.30 we were told we could be accommodated but it would be a 15 to 20 min wait for a table. This was fine and our name was taken. It was exceptionally busy but after 50 mins of waiting and two families who... More

We decided to go here for an evening meal on a Tuesday. We hadn't booked + it was very busy so we were very happy when they were able to fit us in. It took us a few minutes to identify who we needed to speak to in order to ask about a table but when we did he was... More

Thank you for your honest review and yes you are completley right, we are struggling at the moment to cope with the huge volume of customers we are getting. We are working on it and weve upped the number of staff during evening service! I hope your experience will not deter you from returning and we hope to see you... More

Stayed for one night. Nice chatty staff, room was a nice size and comfortable enough for us. Food is good pub grub - fish was a monster. Looked forward to craster kippers for breakfast but they didn't have any! Couple of good real ales and a lovely beer garden. Nicely positioned with a short stroll to the beach. Worth a... More

I came to Beadnell to get some new shots for my photography business. Spent most nights here. The food was fantastic and large portions. Their fish tastes lovely but is huge yet at a great price. The staff are super friendly and give great customer service from the manager all the way to the waiters / waitresses / bar staff.... More
