Great location

We called in on a sunny Saturday lunch time hoping for a spot of lunch in the sun and to enjoy the great views. Everyone else had the same idea. The queue at the bar was 4 rows deep. I managed to get a table on the lovely terrace while my husband stood in the queue for the drinks. Then... read more

Went with friends whilst on holiday locally. This place is amazing - wonderful views from the upstairs dining room and fantastic food. The crab soup is absolutely delicious, the fish dishes are beautiful and the venison was cooked (i.e. hardly at all) to perfection. The staff were brilliant, attentive and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Brilliant night had... More

This pub has been updated in recent years. It now offers imaginative pub food well presented..... with a great ocean view. If you like crab.... the soup is to die for

We had a very nice lunch here. Despite being busy, our food turned up very quickly. The views are fabulous and the village is lovely although it gets a lot of tourists heading up to the castle. Unfortunately they don't seem to open the "top" section except at meal times which is a shame as the views would be great.... More

Took my parents here recently for the delicious crab sandwiches. Lovely views especially on a sunny day. Dad enjoyed one of the local beers. Shall definitely return

Stumbled across this place whilst staying up the road. Had a drink and decided to book for dinner. They couldn't fit us in until 8.30 (we were there at 6) so went back to the hotel and returned later. Well worth it. Great views, nice decor, good service, delicious food. We paid the same as we would in our (expensive)... More

A visit up the Northumberland coast is not complete without a visit to this pub . It was hard to decide between their amazing crab sandwiches or the seafood platter-the seafood platter with a portion of chips won - this was shared between two and was more than enough :-) Very good !

This was our second visit to the Jolly Fisherman and once again, we weren't disappointed. Our fellow diners have been here quite a few times and we were all really impressed with the new extension and the stunning views of the coast and also of Dunstanburgh Castle. The crab sandwiches went down a treat, as did my prawn and marie... More

Our table had a sea view on a lovely sunny evening. Friendly staff, varied menu and desserts are scrumptious. I chose the rib eye steak and it was delicious. A good choice of ales and wines. Overall a lovely place to spend an evening. Prices are fair for the quality of the food and service.
