We had a lovely seafood birthday lunch for 6. Fabulous crab starter and because the restaurant was quietish we were allowed to have the cold seafood platter, which was just magic. Can't recommend it enough. With a starter it was plenty to share between 2. Staff were very friendly and happy to chat. Selection of wine was spot on. Table... More

Had lunch here after a walk to Dunstanburgh Castle. We had a pair of grilled Craster Kippers and the Atlantic prawns & crayfish in marie rose sauce, served with Craster smoked salmon. Both were served with fresh, crusty bread and butter. The kippers were simply wonderful and there was a very large portion of smoked salmon on the delicious prawn,... More

Good atmosphere and a very warm welcome, lovely food, an excellent meal. Longish wait between courses but well worth it as you know its freshly cooked and the staff take time to talk to you. Only one sitting in the evening so no rushing. We will be returning again and again.

We had intended to have lunch in the Jolly Fisherman across the road - it was packed so we lucked out and had lunch here. It was fantastic. Friendly service, bottle of Alnwick ale and the best kippers I have ever had in my life. Good lady wife and the Craster Skink and that was fantastic. Looking at the crab... More

We really enjoyed our visit for lunch. We had come especially for kippers and were not disappointed. We were also impressed with the other food, and enjoyed the Skink, fish & chips and fish cakes. Also, the service was very good. The manager was particularly welcoming and helpful, from the first time we spoke over the phone to reserve a... More

The quality of the fish was excellent, but this was expected. What was not expected was the imaginative menu inspired by the Brazilian manager and her fabulous team. Good value and not to be missed when visiting this part of Northumberland.
