My partner had the crab, lime and chilli risotto which was full of flavour and heat! Yhey certainly didn't skimp on the portion size. I had the slow roast belly pork which just melted in my mouth. For dessert my partner had the sticky toffee pudding, again it was a hearty portion full of flavour. I had the strawberry flowerpot cheesecake and was in heaven.

We called in with friends who were visiting the area. Even though it was late for lunch- 2:30pm, there were still plenty of people dining. The bar area being full we had our sandwiches in the dining room. On the recommendation of the landlord I tried a pint of Tempest, a traditional hoppy bitter and very much to my taste. The crab sandwiches were a nice blend of white and brown crab meat on fresh bread, though I would have preferred them not to have contained salad- the accompanying salad and coleslaw on the plate would have been sufficient.
The service was very good- friendly staff who were obviously keen to please.

Get there early for a table! The service was a bit slow but the food was well worth waiting for. Good choice of starters, mains and puddings with daily specials shown on a board. All the food that our party had over two nights was excellent - try the 3 chocolate puddings for desert, a treat for chocolate lovers. As it was autumn when we visited the fire was lit, making the place warm but not overheated. Dogs are welcomed here, the staff are friendly and give just the right amount of attention without the inevitable "enjoy" that most servers say further south!

A great place to warm up in after a winters walk on Alnmouth beach. Served a great pint of Guinness and offered a good range of beers. The food served was of a very good standard, the Slow cook mutton was excellent. There was a quiz on a tuesday night which was fun and added to the excellent atmosphere
