Had read the reviews and visited for a drink as we are staying in Alnmouth just around the corner so had high hopes of a good meal. Northumbrian Roast Beef at £7.95 and Beef pie similar price sounded excellent value for money and arrived very quickly....rather too quickly in fact. The roast beef was more braised than roasted and more of a shin cut than a roasted joint, the Yorkshire pudding was overlooked and far too crisp and hard to be freshly cooked. We ate at 6.30 PM and the Sunday menu was offered all day. It is a problem for pubs to 'keep food hot and cooked' for hours on end. Answer, just serve traditional lunches earlier in the day and revert to evening menu. We were generally a bit disappointed, it may have been better at 1 PM, roast potato ( just 1!) and broccoli were ok. It filled a gap, that's all. pie was also ok, meat rather dry and pastry a bit chewy. won't return for food.
