This restaurant is in a lovely scenic spot overlooking the harbour in Craster, and has always served consistently high quality food, mainly fish but with good alternatives. In recent years the service has perked up immeasurably, and that extends to a more varied and thoughtful menu with a Brazilian influence that makes the whole experience really unique. Can't wait until... More

We managed to reach the restaurant just before closing time having walked along the lovely coastal path to the town. My husband ordered the kippers and instead of getting one serving they served him two and did not charge us for the second serving which was lovely of them. I had the fish and chips option and coming from Yorkshire... More

Having visited the superb Craster Fish restaurant on many occasions we decided this time to finish our weeks stay at Craster with take away fish and chips to eat in our cottage just round the corner. Fantastic service as always and have to say these were the best take away fish and chips we have ever had with beautifully cooked... More

Just had the most wonderful meal in Craster. Such a charming setting the sea food was so fresh vibrant and delicious. Six of us had a great evening not least because the staff are so friendly and welcoming and the views of Dunstanburgh Castle and the harbour are second to none complimenting this fantastic restaurant. Craster Kippers are world renowned... More

We were visiting Craster off season so the hours were extremely limited; never known a restaurant to be open for just 90 min for dinner--6:30 til 8! Turned up at 6:30pm to a dark building when an SUV suddenly turned in and 4 women got out. She asked us to give them just a few minutes so we walked across... More

A delightful walk here from Alnmouth along the coast in glorious sunshine; we had half an hour to spare before the bus arrived to take us back. Saw the restaurant did takeaway fish&chips, ideal we thought. Friendly helpful service and we were told the fish would be Haddock, our absolute favourite. Cooking time 10mins, just OK to fit in before... More

Thank you for your positive feedback about our friendly service, our staff strive to be as helpful as possible. We are so sorry that you were disappointed with your fish but we can assure you that your takeaway fish was indeed haddock. The fish used in our takeaway service is the exact same fish we serve in our restaurant, and... More

We visited as a couple and our meal was delish! The whole evening was fantastic with beautiful food, great service and a lovely atmosphere. Our seafood starter was so fresh and tasty and my main of scallops and king prawns was amazing. Totally recommend this place and will definitely be returning when it re-opens next year after the winter :-)

We have been four times since May, and have not been disappointed. The food is excellent and quite unique amongst fish restaurants on the Northumberland Coast due to the Brazilian cook! Nice South American fish dishes alongside traditional fayre including the famous Craster kipper. The restaurant is part of L. Robson & Sons who run the smokery! We were tempted... More
