Craster - The Seafood Restaurant
Craster - The Seafood Restaurant
Looking up a rather damp Haven Hill with Craster Seafood Restaurant on the right. This friendly little restaurant was very busy (and very noisy) when we visited - but the food was delicious - in particular the kippers (from the adjacent smokery) were the best I've ever tasted.
In the distance can be seen the pub sign of The Jolly Fisherman which is also well rated for its food, though I can't personally vouch for it as we didn't eat there.
Craster
Craster is a small fishing village on the Northumbrian coast. It has a small and attractive harbour and offers a view northwards to the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle.
For many years, the village has had a herring-curing business: Craster kippers are well known. The local herrings are smoked in a traditional manner by the Robson family.
The remains of a tower on the end of the harbour are all that can be seen now of the much taller building which was part of the overhead equipment which used to convey the local stone from where it was quarried to boats in the harbour. The disused quarry is now a car park. A small distance inland lies Craster Tower, the home of the Craster family who owned the quarry and had the harbour improved for its benefit. A memorial on the harbour wall commemorates a member of the Craster family who died serving with the British Army in Tibet in the 19th century, the development of the harbour was as a memorial to their son.
It is within the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
