...I'd hate to meet the grumpy one! I've been to the Jolly Fisherman before and enjoyed it a few years ago so was keen to go back. I am now on a restricted diet so also phoned in advance and was reassured that my (dairy-free) requirements could be catered for. I arrived alone with 2 young children whilst my partner... More

Recently, after a wonderful walk on one of the most beautiful beaches in England (if not the world) - Embleton beach in Northumberland, we arrived in the pretty little seaside village of Craster, home of the wonderful Jolly Fisherman pub. Built right on the sea edge, this old Northumberland pub has been refurbished in the last two years, a refurbishment... More

This is not the first time we have visited the jolly fisherman last February whilst in the area we were told we must eat in the local pub. We were not disappointed and were looking forward to visiting again. We booked for Saturday night and enjoyed a great meal with great friendly service. At the end of the meal the... More

While staying in the area for one week, we had two meals in the restaurant. This was very unusual for us as we try to visit as many different places as possible. Firstly we had lunch so that we could enjoy the lovely sea view from the dining room which sits above the water. Being in such a location we... More

Had an excellent lunch here- crab sandwiches and fish platter. Both were excellent and very tasty indeed. The staff were pleasant and helpful, service prompt, everything clean and well run. The décor was beautifully updated though still in keeping with it being a pub which welcomes walkers. The toilets were SUCH and improvement and spotless. It goes without saying that... More

We visited just after New Year. The pub was very busy but service was prompt. The food was a good standard - I recommend the seafood platter. There are views over the sea but these obviously go first.

Visited here on Wed 7th Jan and discovered a lovely modern little restaurant. Very clean and modern, but a little remote. It was quiet, but this is a quiet time of year. The staff were pleasant and attentive. The food was good, but just short of fantastic. The house special of Crab Soup was just a tiny bit under seasoned... More

Lovely seaside pub specialising in fish and seafood. Staff friendly but did not handle a minor complaint about the food well. Overall atmosphere makes it a magical place to eat, food quality in terms of batters and pastry could be improved.
