Excellent food and wine, weren't pushed out of the door when we were finished, service was prompt and catching the waiters eye inbetween courses was easy. We were allowed to relax and chat on after the meal unlike other resterants who want your table as soon as you've finished. A nice place to go with your family for a night... More

Visited three years ago and loved it, much the same now but looking a bit tired in places. Friendly service, we went for the happy hour time slot (4-5.30). Good choice of largely sea food specials. Food was quite good but portions were huge, too much for us. Pudding was of the bought in variety- why don't restaurants make them... More

This restaurant still continues to produce excellent food at reasonable prices. Thought it may have changed since my visit last year. But it hasn't. Always the place I book when visiting Alnmouth because it's the best place to eat.

We called in mid-evening without a booking to find the restaurant full. The table was an estimated 45 mins so we went through to the bar next door (attached) and the very friendly young barman served us and kept us entertained. Good choice of gins. When we were called to eat the service was attentive and the food really delicious.... More

We only manage to get here when we holiday in the area! Once again superb food and a quick and friendly service. I had the sardines starter and seafood linguine. Very very nice. My wife had the focaccia with sun blushed tomatoes this was enough to share so no complaints. This was followed by Mushroom tagliatelle. Very tasty if anything... More

Overall a good meal. Service was fairly quick and there was plenty of choice on the menu. Staff however, were not the friendliest or warmest of hosts. I'm also not a fan of allowing dogs into a restaurant - just my personal opinion.

Excellent pizza. Things crust with a crispy outer edge and softer crust in the center. Seriously good. There is a decent range of starters and mains. Presentation is simple. Prices are reasonable. The service was friendly, efficient and nonintrusive. We had spent a day walking and needed tasty food in a relaxing setting. Absolutely hit the spot.

We were in Alnmouth for the art festival last week. The fish and chips we had here were the best ever.

We dined here twice during a recent stay at Alnmouth and were not disappointed on either occasion. The service was warm and friendly and the food was fresh and tasty. There were plenty of options for vegetarians available.
