This is the 4th time we've stayed here & will be back again next year. Northumberland is a fantastic place gorgeous countryside but also close to miles & miles of beaches. Craster is famous for their Kippers. The cottage inn is a little way out from the harbour further into the village but you may just drive by it &...

The Cottage Inn was a delightful find hidden in Dunstan on the back roads near the wonderful Northumberland coastline, just a mile outside of Craster; a 'dog friendly' quaint pub/inn which is like a Tardis, a lot bigger inside than it looks from the outside, that serves drinks including real ales that are very 'well kept'; it has limited parking...

Dropped in on the Cottage Inn this B.H. as in the area to see Dunstanburgh castle, and was mightily impressed. As it was BH, the place was busy and the food did take a little while to arrive but it was well worth the wait. We both had the mushrooms in a stilton sauce as starter, and for mains, my...

Had a decent stay here over Easter weekend. The Inn itself is well located a short walk from the lovely seaside village of Craster and in lovely grounds. The rooms are a little tired as previous reviewers have mentioned but are good sizes and the beds are comfortable with soft linens. Couple of recommendations - the water pressure in the...

Went to this pub/restaurant on a recommendation and wasn't dissappointed. Arrived and got a drink from the bar, shown to our table which was in a conservatory area which is dog friendly. Had starters, prawn cocktails followed by a steak dish and scampi, very large portions and at a great price. Staff very welcoming, even brought our dog a sausage....

This is the third time we have stayed at this friendly and accommodating small hotel and the atmosphere is still very warm and welcoming. The building is approached along a wooded drive and has a large outside area with ample outside tables to enjoy a decent drink when the sun shines. The eating areas are split between dog friendly and...

Visited here whilst staying at Craster Tower for the weekend. The interior is a bit of a mishmash but the food is great. There were 7 people in our party and each and everyone of us enjoyed our meals. The puddings in particular went down a treat with sticky toffee pudding, lemon posset and strawberry and rhubarb cheesecake being our...

We've been twice now and always found the food good, the service from most of the staff is very good, found one to be a bit cool. Awesome beer garden, covered outside area and dog friendly in the bar/conservatory. Decent deals on accommodation/meals over winter months. On Sunday afternoon, drunk people at the bar. Not ideal but happy to live...

Went there last night to give it another try as sometimes it is hit and miss, we were not disappointed had a lovely meal large haddock and chips were superb as was the giant Yorkshire pud and roast of the day.
