I went here with my daughter on Wednesday night for our evening meal. My daughter had the steak and ale pie,( always a favourite), I had the scampi, equally delicious. Always a lovely atmosphere and the food is excellent and not silly prices, especially when you consider the location. We always visit this place every time we visit Seahouses which... More

Stopped here for Sunday lunch after a hunt to find somewhere ! Seated very quickly. You go to the bar with your table number and order there. We both opted for Sunday cavery. Now I'm a big fan of caveries! I love Sunday dinners. I have to rate this one very high. Just got to the corner to see the... More

Can't rate the staff in this establishment highly enough-we called in on boxing day & we were having issues with a family member meltdown and they were very attentive, and understanding. Meals are substantial hearty and delicious. Designated dog friendly area, fabulous views, spacious with a comfy feel. Will definitely visit again.

We were enjoying our first Christmas break in Northumberland and decided to treat ourselves for Christmas lunch. We were not disappointed. A little concerning was the car park was full on our arrival and with 3 dogs in the car, that was a big worry! But, we spotted there was just enough room for us to park down an entry... More

Went here for Sunday lunch, as it's dog friendly. The carvery was superb; meat beautifully roasted, Yorkshire puddings definitely not made by Aunt Bessie, and a great veg selection, all served on a hot dinner plate. We paid £9.95 each; I consider this to be the going rate for a Sunday carvery, taking into consideration the quality of the food... More

Called in for dinner after day out in the area. Lovely pub, waitresses friendly . Food delicious especially the pork with haggis which was outstanding . Baileys Creme Brûlée a disappointment as very small and no taste of Baileys whatsoever but saying that custard was tasty and shortbread good - would have said more like plain Creme brûlée . Would...

Let me get started with the positives. The food was very tasty and the pub is lovely. Good views and dog friendly so perfect for a place to visit in Seahouses. However. My quibble is price. Went to the Sunday Carvery. At £10 for the adult plate it was not cheap, but more annoyingly 2 friends ordered the child plate... More

They were unable to provide any vegan options at all. Even the chips were cooked with meat. It's rediculous that they cannot cater for such a basic need in 2017.

Even your chips are cooked in beef dripping according to the bar staff. Vegetarian options all contain milk, eggs or cheese. Poor labelling on your menu and the allergen menu made no reference to how items are cooked. First restaurant of this size that I've ever been to that can't even do a plate of chips that isn't covered in... More

Description
When it comes to top seaside locations, the award-winning Bamburgh Castle Inn in Northumberland is hard to beat. Named Tourism Pub of the Year 2015 in the North East England Tourism Awards, The Bamburgh Castle Inn overlooks the harbour in the fishing village of Seahouses. Newly refurbished, this friendly inn with 33 en-suite rooms has all the charm of the seaside with amazing sea view rooms. Enjoy a drink or eat al fresco in our elevated beer garden with its amazing views of the Northumberland coast towards the Farne Islands and the inn's namesake - Bamburgh Castle. If you're looking for accommodation for a stay away, a guest house or a bed and breakfast in Northumberland that offers excellent value for money, a more laid back approach than a hotel and more service than simply self-catering, look no further than The Bamburgh Castle Inn. With an established reputation for good, home-cooked pub food and serving up a proper pint of Northumberland's finest, The Bamburgh Castle Inn is popular with visitors and locals alike. Don't miss our legendary Sunday Carvery complete with towering Yorkshire Puddings - you won't be disappointed.
