It was our last night in Craster and fancied fish and chips - we did a spot of Googling and discovered The Cottage Inn did take-away. Ordered over the phone with a lovely lady. Arrived early and had a drink in the garden whilst waiting. Got the food home and bingo - it was delicious - one very satisfied family! Thank you to the lovely staff 👍

Best Fish, Chips & Mushy Peas can recall ever having. That’s a big claim I know but they were that good. The haddock was so sweet and so meaty to eat and the home cooked chips just like your Mam used to make them. Super friendly as not and head and shoulders above the bar in Craster which may have wonderful views but that’s it.

We popped in to see if they had available for an evening meal and was not disappointed. (Fish and Chips and Chicken Supreme) They food was amazing and the staff were so lovely and couldn’t have made us feel any more welcome. Thank you 😊😊

We chose the Village Inn as a base for visiting Alnwick and The Northumberland coast. There was a large car park and pleasant beer garden. Access was easy. Our room was clean and comfortable. The shower was fine but not very powerful. The food was good, but they could have added more vegetarian / vegan choices. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. It took about 15 minutes to walk down to Craster. The path back to the hotel was quite steep in places.
