My wife and I stayed at this Hotel to celebrate my 79th birthday on April 18th. I had read previous reviews about a (Vicious)Jack Russell terrier owned by the lady of the house.I had used this hotel because it is dog friendly. The dog was noisy as all terriers are,but it posed no threat to my Border Terrier,indeed they were... More

We called in for Sunday lunch after walking round Craster area. We were ignored by the barman when we went in. He was talking to a couple of locals and appeared annoyed that we interrupted him! He pointed to the restaurant and we wandered in to be told we could sit anywhere as they weren't busy - two other couples... More

Stayed here for one night as part of a walking holiday with friends. Great little pub, accommodation is a little tired but all very clean and comfortable. The food at dinner and at breakfast was excellent and great value. The Inn is a little back from the coast and the beautiful harbour at Craster, but it is only a few... More

Warm welcome from the staff when we arrived cold and muddy after a long ride in the rain. They had a secure garage for us to store our bikes and a hose for us to wash the bikes down. Our room was very clean, cosy and quiet. We ate in the pub and the food was very hearty and filling... More

Went here to eat two nights in a row it was so good! Definitely recommend it! The chicken and mushroom dish was lovely, and my mother had the steak pie which looked amazing! The hot sticky toffee pudding with custard was divine! The waiter was a bit cold at first, but he softened up as the night went on! A... More

We were here for Sunday lunch with friends and found the staff the be friendly and helpful. Our meals were delicious and very generous portions. It was lovely to have local Craster kippers. We were meeting friends we han seen for a long time and there was no attempt to hurry us through the meal.

Firstly praise where it is due, the waitress's that worked in the restaurant and bar were extremely helpful, polite and hard working. We stayed in this hotel because it takes dogs however we had to leave our dog in the room all the time because of an aggressive Jack Russell that belonged to the hotel. In half an hour of... More

Stayed for two night winter package. Room recently refurbished; spacious and comfy. Breakfast ok and dinner menu had good selection. Dogs are welcome in the rooms and bar. Downside was that the pub dog sits in the bar all night every night, snapping and growling at every dog that comes into the room (at customers too). Staff bring their dogs... More
