Fab place, fab food and friendly staff. Let down by the fact we've tried to visit a few times lately and it has been closed! Opening times displayed on the window would help.

A wonderful, atmospheric evening with in house piper and tributes to The Bard. Menu perfectly designed to fit all tastes, with a nip of whiskey for toasting and great service as always. Thank you to Alistair, Anna and staff for a great evening.

We decided to call in for lunch, after a rather bracing walk along Alnmouth beach (a must do as it is such a lovely beach). Our visit didn't get off to the beast of starts. The place itself was rather chilly, even though we were sat next to heaters; but then it was a very cold day, and the place... More

Found this place after a wet, windy walk on the beach. We were very wet when we entered but had a very friendly, warm welcome. We only wanted a light lunch so I had leek and potato soup and my husband had spicy tomato soup,all served with bread and butter. My husband enjoyed his soup and, I have to say... More

We recently had brunch at Bistro 23 following a brisk walk on the beautiful Alnmouth sands. The waiting staff were very accomodating and happy to make up a vegetarian-style brunch for me.

We were delighted to find the tea rooms open in December after a brisk walk on the beach. They had a good selection of food including provision for a gluten-free diet. Lovely service and refills of coffee!

The restaurant has an excellent atmosphere and was fairly quite. Service was very good if a bit quick. We did 3 courses in less than an hour. Food average. Meat balls tasteless on a bed of tomato ragu and Luke warm soup followed by lamb chops and vegetarian dish. The sauce on the chops was good but can't call the... More
