Loved our visit to the Craster Arms. Arrived to find the pub packed (always a good sign) asked whether they possibly had a table for 2 despite the fact we hadn't booked. Spoke to the absolutely lovely manager who said he would check. Came back to us & said he could definitely fit us in as long as we could...

Great to see you back in Beadnell for Christmas. There we're a few issues with getting the correct supplies in over Christmas, so apologies that many dishes weren't available the day you visited.

This pub is very welcoming, when we arrived there was a lovely log fire blazing away and a Christmas tree up. The menu is very varied, the food we chose was delivered with a smile. The food was very tasty. The only thing we didn't like was the one armed bandit in the corner. The area we sat in was...

Nice place and location. Very friendly place. Just a bit disappointed with the food. Sweet and sticky ribs seemed to have been boiled with some shop bought rib sauce poured over with shop bought coleslaw on the side. Wasn't bad - just a bit disappointing. Home made slaw or rib sauce, or some oven roasting caramelisation would have been so...

Thanks for the review Tommy. Great to hear that you liked the pub and its location. We will put your comments to the chef, but all our food is made onsite, including the rib sauce. Glad you enjoyed the mussels, they are one of our most popular dishes.

Warmly welcomed by the barman, and the coal fire was warm also. Ordered food and drinks, as he poured Liz changed her mind, not a problem to the barman, who simply said he'd have to drink the one already poured himself ! Boiled ham sandwiches, thick slabs of hand carved meat. Well worth a visit
