Found the pub by accident and stopped for Sunday roast which we ate sitting out on the veranda, above the beach. Delicious and very well cooked. Counted 9 different vegetable on the plate! Very reasonable too.

We had a great lunch of dressed crab salad at the Fishing Boat Inn in Boulmer. Nice location on the seaside and very friendly and helpful service. Worth the short drive from Alnwick.

Can not complain of the service, food or wonderful view but as we were staying for two weeks in Boulmer the Menu was a limited choice. So traveled to other pubs in the area.

Not sure to be honest but what I can tell you that this place is always very busy. We haven't eaten there yet but we intend too soon.
