Best meal in week's stay in Northumberland

We really enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu we ate here. The ingredients were all very fresh and we were happy to eat dishes based on quality rather than quantity. The price was fair and we were able to bring a decent bottle of wine with us rather than paying over the odds for a mediocre one. Would... read more

Beaches is a lovely intimate restaurant where you can enjoy the freshest food ever! The fixed menu was well thought through and cooked to perfection. The atmosphere is calm with subtle music in the background. Service feels like you've got your own chef and maitre'd . Five courses, bring your own wine and enjoy! Beaches is not a plush restaurant,... More

This is an Italian style restaurant/pub/hotel which servers good food at reasonable prices and by all accounts the hotel is well recommend.

We go on an (ir)regular basis to Beaches, and we are never disappointed. This gem of a restaurant serves genuine, fresh food, prepared with love and care. BYOB keeps prices reasonable, and the hospitality is second to none. Donald and Sue are dedicated hosts, no effort is too much to make you feel welcome. We'll be back soon, if only... More

Well located intimate restaurant with good food and great service, all at sensible prices. Best to book, and byo policy. Probably not ideal for children. Sea food specials. We had a very pleasant meal, not rushed, with an extensive menu.

We had three evening meals in Alnmouth, all were ok but none outstanding. One plus here is BYOB which helps keep prices reasonable. When we went the menu in the window did not reflect the menu inside, we were offered only 3 starters - bread and olives, garlic mushrooms or lobster soup. We opted for the first two to share,...

After reading the reviews on here decided to give the restaurant ago whilst on holiday in Alnmouth. We were certainly not disappointed by what we found. Small restaurant but equally very charming. The menu is chalked on the blackboard for all to see. Between the four of us in our party we sampled a variety from the menu and nobody... More

We have stayed in Alnmouth, and eaten at Beaches, several times, most recently last week. A small, atmospherically lit room wallpapered with old shipping maps, maybe only half a dozen tables, so you do need to book, especially since it opens only 2-3 nights/week. Cash only payment and bring your own wine just adds to the experience! Donald is front... More

Unfortunately my friend and I were tired after our 10 mile walk and couldn't stay awake for dessert or coffee - but we will next time! We were lucky they were open on a Tuesday at its mainly weekends - so call and check ahead. It is small - basically tables set in the front room of an old house... More

Do not be fooled!!! Beaches is not posh and looks very ordinary from the outside, but step inside and you are in for a treat. Don is an excellent host and makes you feel like a long lost friend. There are only 5 or 6 tables, you need to pay with cash only and there is no licence (hence bring... More
