Bistro 23 is a fairly small tea room on the main street in Alnmouth. I'm not sure what it's like for that as we were there for Saturday evening meal with four friends. We had booked well ~ over a month ~ in advance and it's easy to see why we had to as there is NO chance of getting... More

We booked for two on appearances alone. This can be quite a mistake in this part of the country - not in this case. We went on 'fish night'. The place was fully booked and we discovered shortly why. Without chapter and verse on the menu, our three-course meal was of the highest quality from the food itself to the... More

Another excellent meal at the Bistro, we were a party of four and every course was delicious. If you are coming to Alnmouth or the surrounding area you must visit this establishment for an evening meal on either Wednesday, Thursday( fish night plus meat) and Saturday make sure you book to avoid missing out.

Well, that took me a while to find this café on Tripadvisor since it has a different name in the day. I stopped in for a light lunch with my family. The service was great and the food too. Everyone enjoyed the meal with large portions and lots of flavours. It added to the really nice view we took away... More

What a wonderful end to our weekend trip away. Thankfully we booked. When we arrived at 7.30 the restaurant was already buzzing. The service was exceptional and the food matched. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed everything that we had. A definite place to eat but you need to book to ensure you get in .

Our party of 4 arrived eagerly looking forward to a great night of local seafood and were not disappointed. The lobster and the sea trout were terrific. The service was friendly and efficient. Can't wait to return.

8 girls/ladies on a weekend break to celebrate a 60th birthday . Because of the number in our party we booked well in advance. Sparkles put on the table and Proseeco ordered in for us. The owners very friendly and attentive

Called in on a quiet Sunday afternoon for a cuppa ... but then saw Craster Kippers on the menu so had to give in to temptation. Glad I did. Lovely meal, tea, surroundings and staff. A real treat.
