Great Fish and Chips

The tea was interesting - I was given an egg timer which apparently timed the brewing in the teapot to perfection and I could then pour... read more

I last dined here about 8 years ago and was more than happy to be returning as I remember excellent meals here. The setting is wonderful, looking out over the harbour. The staff are really welcoming and helpful and the food is fabulous. Really fresh seafood, stunningly presented and reasonably priced. I wish I lived close enough to Craster to... More

We had a lovely lunch meal at this restaurant in August 2014. I ordered a side of Kippers and my wife ordered fish and chips. They gave me a double portion of kippers by mistake and didn't charge for it. Anyway it was the first time and definitely not the last time. A very nice and satisfying meal. Ideal preparation...

Another delicious lunch here. King size kippers and haddock in crispiest batter. We've been here several times and never disappointed. Wish it stayed open during the Winter. Will certainly be back for more. Lovely friendly staff and fantastic views of the harbour.

The food was excellent, fresh and tasty. The setting overlooking the harbour is very pretty. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend the fish and chips, the mustard smoked haddock and the craster skink. We will be back to try some more things on the menu! Booking is recommended so you don't miss out!

We had a great lunch here in a picturesque spot in the charming fishing village of Craster. The welcome was warm and the lunch menu interesting. There is a clear commitment here to cook fresh dishes from local ingredients. We both selected the homemade fishcakes: satisfying with a meaty smoked haddock and salmon filling, served with a generous portion of... More

There are not enough adjectives to describe how amazing this restaurant is! From the moment we arrived to our departure, there was complete attention to detail without service being fussy or overbearing. Each course tasted divine.The attention to flavour and detail in the composition of the dishes shone through. Wouldn't hesitate to do the 50 miles round trip to visit... More

Long wait for fairly average fish and chips. Also had a pair of kippers which came with a bizarre collection of loaf heels. The kippers were excellent

Lunch on a dreary day but the food and the welcome more than made up for it. This is our first visit this year and it won't be our last. We shared the delicious, Portuguese crab starter, then followed with the fish'n'chips. We really must have something different next time but oh, they are so good. Crispy, hot and a... More

Visited here on opening night for the new season. Very warm welcome and managed to get a window seat. We decided to share a starter, casquinha de siri, a Portuguese dish with fresh crab meat. This was absolutely delicious, probably the best starter I've had for a long time! Full of flavour and nice to have something different for a... More
