Discovered Beaches on a recent trip to Northumberland. A small, intimate restaurant in a room festooned with eclectic items of a nautical nature!
The food is locally sourced... direct from the fishing boats at Amble and nearby, plus meat from local farmers.
The menu is dictated by what is fresh, seasonal and available. The food is cooked to perfection and very reasonably priced... (The Lobster is to die for!)
This is the sort of eulogy that you might expect to be reserved for 'top London restaurants'.. but sadly few of those could begin to compare with the quality, the personal service, the atmosphere and the warmth of the welcome.
I'm sure there are other good restaurants in the area, but we were so impressed we decided not to risk a comparison test and booked again for the following night. Once again it was superb! Donald manages to create a wonderful atmosphere and every customer is made to feel special.
It's definitely one to add to your wish-list!
No alcohol licence, but you can take your own and Donald will serve it for a very modest corkage fee.
Make sure you book too, as it fills up very quickly!
