A Grade II listed building on the National Heritage List, The Craster Arms has its roots deeply embedded in Beadnell’s history.

Occupying an 18th-century coaching inn, as well as a medieval tower house that dates back to the 16th century, this pub in Beadnell proudly showcases its centuries-old legacy.

Pubs with a View: Sips and Scenery

For the best coastal views, we recommend taking the scenic, 45-minute walk to Seahouses, more specifically, The Bamburgh Castle Inn. Overlooking the harbour, this inn boasts panoramic vistas of the Farne Islands and, on clear days, the majestic silhouette of Bamburgh Castle. With its spacious outdoor seating area, sip on your favourite drink (in this setting, we’d recommend a local ale) while the sea breeze carries tales of ancient castles, Scottish raids, and shipwrecks.
