The Jolly Fisherman

Haven Hill, CRASTER, Alnwick, NE66 3TR

The charm of this historic stone-flagged, low-beamed pub remains undimmed. When it's cold, relax by an open fire; at any time admire impressive Dunstanburgh Castle from the delightful beer garden. When the pub opened in 1847, Craster was a thriving fishing village; now only a few East Coast cobles leave harbour, mostly for the herring that, once smoked, become the famous kippers. Menu choices could be warm crab toasts with sweetcorn chowder; the fishboard - crab pot, salmon fillet, kipper pâté, smoked salmon, prawns, rollmop herring; venison, pigeon and pheasant game pie; and lemon posset with fresh fruit. At the bar are Black Sheep and Mordue Workie Ticket bitter.
