Consistently delicious!

We have dined here numerous times over the years and have thoroughly enjoyed it each & every time. Food, ambience and service are always great, and the price at the end of a full 3 courses & wine is very reasonable. I had the delicious sea bass & tiger prawns for main course on our most recent... read more

We visited the cafe on a cold wet day and it was a cozy place to be. The staff were very welcoming and cheerful and the food - home made tomato soup and local Stottie was a treat. Lovely comfort food on a wet day. The home baking was delicious and the cakes as well.would recommend this place and reading... More

We had been staying in Warworth and had stopped in Alnmouth yesterday for a coffee at Bistro 23 - we sat outside as it was such a lovely day. The staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble, they even looked after our JR (Jodi) with water and biscuits. Today we walked to and from Warkworth and this time... More

We had 2 lovely meals here during our week at Alnmouth. On both occasions the food was delicious and the owners were very welcoming and friendly, even when they were very busy on the fully booked special 'Seafood night'. This is on Thursdays but I would recommend booking as it is very popular. The food was well presented and very... More

Visited yesterday after a walk around Alnmouth. Ordered tea and juice with a jam and cream fruit scone to share. Scone was warmed and extremely tasty. Does come ready prepared with jam and cream which I didn't expect but it was so tasty who cares.

We called in the tearoom mid afternoon on Saturday and sat at a table in the window. We ordered tea and scones with fresh cream and jam. The tea was awful. Weak and tasteless. The scones arrived already topped with jam and cream. Usually places we have visited serve the jam and cream separately for you to sort yourself which... More

A lovely restaurant in the centre of Alnmouth. The food was very good. The ambiance was pleasant. The meal was good value for money.

Called in for refreshments on a Monday afternoon, bacon stotties and a pot of tea. Went down very nicely as they say. Staff very pleasant and welcoming, cafe was clean and relaxed atmosphere. Wifi was available but wasn't a strong signal but we weren't there for that. Would definitely return if passing in future. The evening menu looked very tempting... More

I think this place must be marked down because it is only open 2 nights a week which according to the owners is a lifestyle choice. The owners run an energetic front of house and the food served up was superb. Great buzzy atmosphere and nothing seemed too much trouble. Also visited their tea shop during the day which was...

Came for lunch with my husband and young son during the week. It was completely full, of both locals and tourists, but the staff couldn't have been more attentive. Good lunch food in a pleasant atmosphere. Would definitely go back.
