Good pub food, good service and good beer. For a pub style meal this one can be recommended. They do not take reservations but there is plenty of space in the pub and the associated extension.

We come here every year when we are on holiday in Bamburgh and it never disappoints. Very child friendly, yes it gets busy but service is fast, efficient and friendly. The Seafood salad is amazing: crab, anchovies, smoked salmon, prawns, crayfish tails and rollmop herring for good measure. Kipper fish cakes also delicious. Sticky toffee pudding sublime and very good ice cream too. We'll be back next year no doubt.

We wanted a lunch using local produce so we stopped here and ate in the garden. Two of us had fresh crab sandwiches and two had North Sea Bouillabaisse. Both were excellent, fresh and filling. We love fish soups and were surprised to see this relatively sophisticated offering in a seaside pub. Obviously a cut above the average!

Had a very nice crab salad for lunch on Sunday it was very busy but efficient looks its staffed by the local teenagers but they do a good job. I would definitely eat there again.

With 3 children to cater for, it was great to find a place to eat that was obviously geared up for families. This is a place to come for a good value, selection of favourites. The system is that you queue at the bar to make your food order and although that entails queuing again for desserts, it wasn't too bad a wait. Obviously this frees up waiting staff and ensured that our meals were served promptly; which is what we want when the youngsters are with us. Sausage and mash was a generous helping, with plenty of gravy. One of us had the brisket of beef, which was also enjoyed. We all left well fed and content. Definitely worth a return visit.
