Really nice relaxed and chilled pub with a roaring fire. What's more they serve good hearty food and it's well presented and made too. Definitely hit this place if you are after quality pub grub and bring the dog too, they really don't mind.

We dropped in for a morning coffee, as we knew it was dog friendly and was likely to have a real fire lit. Coffee was excellent, just asking for a normal coffee got a cafetiere which did two cups and a tastry small round of shortbread. £ for a couple of coffees, great ambience, and fab for those with dogs.

Visited for an evening meal. Thursday evening in early March found the bar area busy (including well behaved dogs) & some choosing to eat in bar area. We opted for the quieter dining area. Recently refurbished it was comfortable and toasty warm, seats about 22-24. The food we ordered was piping hot & cooked very well. Prices reasonable with Rump... More

Pub food has come a long way since chicken in a basket and the Red Lion is a good example. On a cold night we sat next to the fire in the bar. Warm and cosy. This is restaurant food served in a pub but you wont be disappointed. It was Sunday evening and we had the two course beef... More

just the place to visit after a walk on the beach, or for an evening realxing by the fire. Excellent range of food all home made and served by staff who really care about service. very welcoming to dog walkers and holiday makers but well known to locals who appreciate its food and hospitality.

Lovely pub and staff serving great home cooked food.. Dig friendly too in Bar and huge beer garden with views over estuary... Makes me laugh when people complain about dogs in pubs on the Northumberland coast.... Have a word with yourself that's the majority of clients...

First impressions deceiving. The bar staff were good and welcoming, but soon realised that there was an over abundance of dogs, a couple of them were incredibly smelly. We had to move tables.... Thereafter all was well - the food and beer were excellent. Just a shame there were too many dogs: seven of them and only 21 human beings

Superb well kept real ales and wine; diverse changing menu and good value for money. Dogs welcome. Two cosy fires and relaxed atmosphere. A must visit.

Love this little pub. My favourite place to visit when I'm up North. Food is consistently good and the open fire's a big bonus after a long walk on the cold beach. Very pleasant staff and can get very busy. Very snuggly pub that serve's nice wine, ale and good food.. Welcome's children and dog's.. Top Class..
