The little village of Bamburgh has plenty of unique and quirky places to fill hungry bellies. From upscale luxury to street food, you won’t go hungry on your visit here. 

It’s only a 30-minute drive from our Haggerston Castle and Berwick holiday parks. For every appetite and taste, here are some great places to eat in Bamburgh.

The Potted Lobster

The Potted Lobster

Cuisine: seafood

Step into a fresh, vibrant restaurant with a nautical theme when you visit The Potted Lobster. They focus on providing the freshest local seafood caught in the surrounding waters of Bamburgh, with seasonal menus. There are several menus to choose from for lunch and dinner, including gluten-free, dairy-free, and children’s options. There are classics such as soup of the day and haddock chowder. Or go all out with a locally caught lobster and Thermidor sauce! 

For a seafood restaurant, they have a surprising amount of vegan and vegetarian options. Why not choose the Jerusalem artichokes and parsnip tahini with crispy shallots? It would be rude not to choose a dessert from their menu to finish off your meal. Select a sweet staple like creme brulee or Eton mess. 

If you have furry family members, you'll be pleased to know that The Potted Lobster is dog friendly. There’s a special dog-friendly area of the restaurant so you can enjoy a meal together! Find this restaurant in Bamburgh along Front Street.

The Castle Inn

The Castle Inn

Cuisine: pub grub

The Castle Inn is a welcoming, traditional pub with good home-cooked fare and a relaxing cosy atmosphere, whether that's inside the pub or outside in the garden. 

Choose favourites such as pies, burgers, gammon and eggs. Or, if you arrive on a Sunday, pop in for a carvery with all the trimmings! There's a kid's menu to fill up little bellies too. If you're after no-nonsense, hearty pub grub, it’s well worth a visit. Plus, dogs are welcome inside. 

Keep an eye out for the chef specials if you fancy something a little bit different such as Honey and Ginger cheesecake or Cullen skink!

The Lord Crewe

The Lord Crewe

Cuisine: British classics

Enjoy a touch of luxury in a setting that's a mix of countryside traditional and spacious modern chic. 

The upscale cuisine is best described as ‘classics with a twist’. Plain steak becomes aged ribeye, oysters are caught fresh in Lindisfarne. There's a wide range of delicious mains and desserts, all made with local, fresh, seasonal ingredients. The chefs take pride in offering an upmarket experience including for vegetarians and vegans, too. 

For example, choose their beer-battered cod if you fancy something filling, or for a lighter bite, opt for goat’s cheese mousse or celeriac and Bramley soup. 

Expect to be wowed!

Let2offset - make no site fee payments until 2031

Let2offset is a contractual lettings product that offers eligible owners a guaranteed letting income at a preferential rate (calculated each year) in exchange for a stipulated number of letting breaks. It also allows eligible owners to pay their site fees and receive their letting income in 12 equal monthly instalments; the monthly site fee amount charged by Haven will be after deduction of the letting income.

‘Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031’ is available at 33 Haven parks excluding Burnham, Cardigan View, Far Grange, Garreg Wen, Lydstep Beach, Riviere Sands and Seaview.  The letting income received will vary by make, model and location. The monthly site fee payment does not include running costs e.g. utilities, rates & insurance.

“Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” is applicable to new and existing customer purchases of new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed or equivalent or superior grade holiday home purchases made through Haven where customers have also signed up to Haven’s Let2offset contract. It is not applicable to private sales and cannot be used in conjunction with our free Site Fee promotion.  It is available across 40% of eligible Parks and applies when letting a new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home (or equivalent or superior grade for 15 weeks.

An example of how “Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” operates under Let2offset is the purchase of an Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home at Primrose Valley with a monthly site fee of £585.00 (includes purchasing discount of £45) and monthly letting income of £803.67. The monthly difference equates to £218.67, which will be credited to the owner's account. Both letting income and site fees are subject to yearly pricing reviews and the monthly site fee costs and letting income shown in the example are based on 2024 figures.

Modelled assumptions on expected annual site fee and letting income charges over the 7-year lettable life of the Atlas Sahara 3 Bed indicate that under Let2offset it is anticipated that these customers will continue to receive a monthly credit during this period, however, this is not guaranteed. The modelled assumptions are based on the historical performance of Haven over the past 5 years of trading.
