The Cresswell Arms is located quite literally at the end of the village of the Northumberland Town of Newbiggin by the Sea. The pub is situated adjacent to a large residential caravan park. This coastal pub enjoys tremendous views out over the estuary. The pub is a well-supported community hub and appeals to a wide range of locals both young and old.
Essentially the pub is a two-room facility and is decorated to a good standard. On entering the pub, one enters the main bar which what can best be described as a snug which proves popular with couples/ladies etc. The gents tend to congregate in front of the main bar to watch live sports and general socialising. Adjacent to the main bar is a sizeable room that houses a pool table and can also be used for private functions.
The Cresswell Arms has always resisted competing with other pubs on price believing instead in its offer of a friendly welcome, in a warm and comforting environment. The pub has a real family feel and is the home to; a weekly quiz, regular karaoke, live music and lots of teams including a men’s darts team, two ladies’ darts teams and two pool teams. Sky Sports proves popular especially when Newcastle United are featured.
The upstairs flat is substantial with 4 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom in good clean and tidy presentable order.
