What a wonderful experience Sambuca in Morpeth truly was. We were a group of 9 and we were all very impressed with the attentive service, the excellent food and the superb house wine. The starters were very high quality and more than ample portions sizes. The main courses included chicken, pizza and pasta dishes all of which were exceptional, complimented... More

Our first visit with friends who go all the time, and we can see why! Cosy, intimate setting with buzzing atmosphere, Sambuca was full to bursting at 7.00pm on a Wednesday night. The specials board groaned with seafood options, as you would hope being on the fish quay, but we opted for the three course £9.95 menu - amazing value... More

Excellent service in a nice cosy restaurant. Whether it's a 3 course special for under 4 quid or a fillet steak we've never been disappointed.

We have always preferred the Cassia Sambuca (old fishermens mission), finding the Sambuca 1 to be too noisy and cramped. We have had many meals at Cassia Sambuca and usually have the fillet steak with veg and have always enjoyed our meal. However we have found our last two visits have not been as good. We have noticed that the... More

We booked a table for 6 on a Friday night to celebrate a birthday. We sat down on time and ordered drinks, staff were clueless as to what wines and lagers were available, all they said were look on the board! Our starters arrived (potato skins) they were nice and hit however the portions were not shared out equally. Some... More

Had the lunchtime cheap three course meal. Very nice, food good, the place much quieter than some of the others in the chain but still the music is too loud for me.
