stayed here for a 3 night break in January.The welcome was as warm as the bar and room were cosy.There was a good selection of well kept beers and a varied well priced menu. The calibre of the food was much better than expected, seasonal veg cooked well accompanied the tasty mains.Recommend the craster kippers for breakfast. The room was basic but spotless and spacious.All in all a good place to stay for a reasonably priced winter break- and if the weather is good (which it was) a perfect spot to walk on the beach or stargaze at night

We've just returned from a two night b&b break at the "Hope & Anchor" & we had a lovely
stay,the bedroom was warm & comfortable with lots of nice touches. The breakfast was based
on put your order in the night before and served at your bird named table,with other hot options available
other than the full monty,boiled eggs, kippers ect., on both days it was served red hot & cooked
perfectly.we also sampled their bar menu, which proved to be just as good as the breakfasts,
red hot,fresh and plenty of it!.
The staff are very accomodating and nothings the bother
"The Hope & Anchor" has a nice lived in feel & a homely welcoming atmosphere,i would
recommend anyone to stay or sample the delights of there menu.

Room Tip: We had a rear room, so no noise, but the village is quiet so i don"t think there would be any...

We went here for a snack after a walk on the beach with our puppies. We wanted to go somewhere the dogs were welcome, even though we knew they would sit quietly . The service was excellent and we will be going there regularly based on what we found today.

As an exiled Geordie, this is my base every time I come "home". Sandra and the staff are extremely friendly and encourage dogs, although our Labrador is a bit too large to bring away from home. The accommodation is comfortable and the food is very good. I cannot understand the few adverse comments made - this is not meant to be a five star hotel, but it is an excellent small hotel in a seaside village with very high standards.

Stayed two nights with my husband and our dog Hugo. Really dog friendly, you can reserve a table in the bar for a meal and dogs can stay in the bar area. Theres a restaurant area for those who don't like eating with dogs. We had the guinness and steak pie and chicken topped with Northumberland ham which was great with home made chips. Theres a great walk along the beach to Warkworth and if you don't fancy the walk back the bus is every hour. The rooms are clean and welcoming. The shower ran cold in the evening so would recommend get in early if you want hot water. Friendly staff and a really enjoyable stay...

Room Tip: Let them know if you have a large dog and they may have a family room available.
