Amazing place. Quite hard to get to, unless you are walking! There is no parking immediately near the properties and a pay and display car park at the top of the hill.

When you arrive, there is a cluster of white washed former fishermens cottages and the pub is in the corner.

Inside - a lovely log burner, bar at one end and rows of big, six seater tables.

There is a brewery on site, but I stuck with the Farne Island - which I am starting to love.

A great experience.

Lovely small pub in a great setting, just off a magnificent beach. There are seats out front or, if there are taken, plenty of grass to sit on and admire the view.

Brew their own beer (and sell bottles to take away). I sampled and enjoyed the Red Herring, a ruby ale, and there was a stout and at least one other as well as other more standard stuff on tap.

It does get busy but it's very civilised, with a patient queue (rather than a scrum where those with loudest voices and biggest elbows get served first).

We visited on a lunchtime when I don't think they take bookings for food, but they serve until about 2.30pm. I enjoyed a good Ploughmans with big helpings of two cheeses from local Doddington Dairy and excellent home-made chutney.

For those who are bothered, they do take payment by card now !

Visited on a very cold May Saturday lunchtime. The place was faultless. They don't take cards but this was the only minor problem. Beer was excellent. Food was served promptly and was delicious. Staff were knowledgable and helpful. Looking forward to returning.

Went there on Friday afternoon. There were plenty of seats and the beer was excellent. People who insist on paying for drinks with debit cards (particularly when pubs are busy) are a pain in the backside anyway - what's wrong with making sure you've got enough cash? A nice pub, and probably better off without the moaners.

Quite frankly I am amazed at people rating a pub poorly because it doesn't take the method of payment they wish to proffer. Surely one has some cash ??? This pub is superb, a shining beacon of a pub of how to do it! Other pubs which may take debit cards are pale comparisons.
