Like a dinner party at your mates (who's a top chef) house!

I took my partner here for her birthday last year a thought that I had written my review back then, but it would appear not... What an oversight! This place is great, we are aspiring foodies so eat out a lot and have never been anywhere quite like this! It was quiet on the Sunday evening that we... read more

Enjoyed the tasting menu with family. A hidden jem which must be booked to be sure of not missing out. 5 course tasting menu served at a leisurely pace. Each course was a local mix of goodies of home cooked delight, lovely. Looking forward to returning soon.

A small restaurant in Alnmouth run by a couple who put the food and the customer first. We went on Saturday evening for the 5 course tasting menu which at £22.95 is superb value for money. It is a fish restaurant but there is a steak alternative for the main course, though not a fish person myself I stayed with... More

Locally sourced good honest food served in a cosy relaxed homely atmosphere. Had delicious seafood bisque followed by Craster smoked haddock, strawberry and raspberry dessert and cheese afters. Can highly recommend. A local treasure.

Heading to Alnmouth for ice cream, we couldn't resist the smell coming from the tiny "seafood shack" next to Beaches. I had a lobster and prawn roll which came in a tasty seeded bun, in a pretty carton with a wedge of lime and some watercress, which would easily carry to the beach. Completed with a cold limonade and very... More

Visited Beaches on a Thursday evening during our recent holiday to Northumberland. We would suggest that you book as this is a popular restaurant. Family of 3. Delighted with the choice of dishes. To start we had a selection of fish and a crab soup. Main crab cakes and a lobster. To finish a cheesecake, a creme brûlée and a... More

Been going here for years and took our family last week; the food, service and ambience were to the high standard we always find. Donald and Sue are committed to their craft of providing locally sourced food, imaginatively presented and individually prepared.

We have just had a week in Alnmouth, and I had read the reviews of this restaurant so decided to give it a go. The restaurant is only open a few evenings a week, but well worth trying to make a booking. We where delighted at the decor, it's like sitting in a fishermans sitting room. We had the 5... More

Great host and surroundings but the meal was decidedly ordinary, the web site led me to believe it would be a foody experience. It was nice safe, unimaginative food. As a good cook I can do better than this!
