The pub, which has a new owner, has used well-known chefs Richard Sim and John Blackmore to help revamp its food offering. It will now serve food in the evening in addition to pub lunches.

Richard is known across the North East and has worked at the Baltic, Gateshead, and with businesses in Northumberland when he was consultant chef with Northumberland Tourism. He is now co-owner of Zecca restaurant in Amble.  John Blackmore established Blackmore’s restaurant in Alnwick.

Jolly Fisherman owner David Whitehead says there is room in the county for good quality, locally produced pub food.

The Jolly Fisherman is close to Dunstanburgh Castle and is a popular resting point with walkers.  It provides unrivalled views of the stunning north Northumberland coast and is just across the road from Robson’s, producers of the famous Craster kipper.
