We ate here last night (19/10/16), and had a wonderful time. The food was excellent. I had the Craster Kipper Pate which was delicious as was the Northumbrian Slow Cooked Beef. I couldn't resist the Creme Brulee and Cheese Board. I don't know where I found the space - I must have a secret dessert stomach! It was worth it.... More

We ate here on Saturday night on our visit to Alnmouth. The kipper pate was amazing! The Northumbrian Slow Cooked Beef was wonderful! We will definitely revisit next time we are in Alnmouth

We started with the Craster Kipper Pate, light and packed with flavor. Main courses were the Northumbrian slow cooked Beef and the Pork Parcels - both delicious, there was a lot... More

Booked ahead to get a table in this really popular restaurant in Alnmouth. Food is very good, cooked well and lovely presentation. Not a vast choice of dishes, but there was no problem choosing from the menu with good wines to compliment the meal. Friendly staff and very relaxing atmosphere. Would certainly return and highly recommend to others!

When we first passed it looked as though it was closed. We would suggest trying the door if you want to eat their. Eating area was ok with lots of lovely pictures you could buy. We liked an old factory clock which added a lovely background sound. I have seen really positive reviews and my wife enjoyed her food. I... More

Always best to book at this small and popular local restaurant. We went on the seafood night (Thursday) and the Craster Kipper pate, Lobster and Sea Trout were all delicious and well presented. All through the evening we were served by enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff...one of them the owner! Thanks for a great last night in Alnmouth. We will be... More

We've stayed for a few nights in Alnmouth for two years running but this was the first and only time we had been able to get a table on a night when we were there, and they were open. The wait was certainly worthwhile, the food and the crew were lovely but unfortunately the evening came near to being ruined... More

We were recommended to Bistro 23 by some friends who stayed in Alnmouth the previous week. Decided to pop in for lunch and thought the full English breakfast looked too good not to miss. Although it was 15mins after the 12 noon deadline for this option, the kitchen happily went out of their way to please us and we enjoyed... More

We were staying in Alnmouth for a week and sadly only on our last day did we try this superb establishment, friendly staff and lovely food and not forgetting the kettle they were kind enough to sell me, many thanks Geoff and Paulette.
