Just perfect. Visited with friends and were made to feel really welcome. Food was perfect. Service was great. Simply can’t fault it. Every restaurant should be like this.

Friendly, attentive service. Freshly cooked food using local produce.Very reasonably priced. We had our table for the whole evening.But remember to book well in advance of your visit as this gem of a restaurant gets fully booked quickly.

WOW, what a find! Popped in for lunch, the soup was thick and tasty and the Pan Haggerty was gorgeous. Friendly staff and efficient service topped off a really lovely meal.

We had a fantastic meal of locally sourced products with attentive service. The quality of the meal was outstanding and we were very pleased to have booked ahead of our visit to Alnmouth and gain a reservation-the previous trip advisor reviews were spot on!

Stopped here for coffee but couldn’t resist the fresh local crab sandwich on artisan bread, followed by scone with cream and jam. The service was exceptional — so friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend to friends and visit again.
