We visited this homely village pub on the recommendation of Linda at East Cawledge Farm B&B. She was right! We repeated our visit the next night. Roast Cod with Crab and a lovely Fish Pie then beautiful lobster the following night. Beautiful views. Great service and a great atmosphere.

Had the lobster sat looking out to sea. Food excellent. Star lovley. Views to die for. Spicy sweet potato soup to start hit the spot as a cold evening. The Shiraz was in expensive but a good bottle of wine and definitely try the Alnwick gin

Staying at a local B&B for 3 nights, we enjoyed a pleasant dinner the first night, so returned for another dinner, which sadly was very poor. The location is excellent with a sun room at the rear overlooking the beach and ocean. On the first night, they weren't busy, so we received great service and a good meal. On the... More

What a wonderful find. Stunning view while tucking into beautiful food!! Would recommend to book early and get a table in the conservatory. The views are amazing and the food second to none. They also serve afternoon tea which is most welcome following a good walk round Northumberland, and for the more tired customers they also have a lovely Studio... More

We had high hopes for fine weather, a nice coastal walk and a lovely pub lunch - I suppose we should be happy with 2 out of 3! We had booked in advance for 2 families and arrived bang on time, with 5 hungry children at 1.30. Our table was ready and they seemed fairly busy, and the food being... More

Have been for lunch here a couple of years ago and was lovely but today was very disappointing, my husband and one of our friends ordered hot beef sandwich and a pork sandwich which should have been served on a ciabatta but they were told at just past 1pm on a Bank Holiday Sunday they had run out!! When the... More

The Fishing Boat Inn is located in the heart of Boulmer Village with the restaurant having a spectacular view overlooking the beach and sea. The food is excellent, the bar serves a good selection of beers, wines and spirits and the staff led by Michael and Margaret are very welcoming, although Michael had a very dry sense of humour. I...
