Having just moved to Northumberland we visited Beaches for New Years Eve. WOW!!! The food was outstanding! it was all home made, freshly cooked, delicious and plenty of it. I can't find anything negative to say about it! it's a small restaurant so would advise making a booking if you visit. For us, it was a perfect night out to... More

A lovely café/restaurant with nice food, a nice atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff. The food all seemed to be good quality, decent portions and the place was kept very clean and tidy. Will definitely call in again.

Ate here last night off the back of previous reviews and can only agree with previous comments. Unless you had either been recommended or seen reviews on this site you would more than likely just walk by this place which from the outside looks like it's closed, but on the inside its a hidden jem. The chap who greeted us... More

We really enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu (Saturday nights). The food was clearly freshly home cooked and full of flavour. We brought our own wine (very reasonable corkage). When we realised that you could only pay cash, the owner/waiter/front of house chap said we could drop off the money later on in the week (which we did of course).... More

This is a small restaurant but always busy - booking definitely advisable. We went on a Saturday for the 5 course taster menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. Bring your own wine/beer etc as it isn't licensed but soft drinks are available to buy. This is predominantly a seafood restaurant and all was fresh and well cooked. The lobster bisque to... More

This was our second visit to Beaches, having previously gone earlier this year. The food, again, was outstanding. Fresh seafood cooked with skill and respect, perfect portion sizes and well paced - not too much waiting between courses but not rushed. The haddock mornay in particular is to die for! Cannot argue with the pricing (22.95 for the tasting menu)... More

We live about half an hour from Alnmouth and Beaches is our firm favourite. Well cooked food, fresh, seasonal, plentiful. The tasting menu on a Saturday is a particular favourite. Seafood bisque with sumptuous dipping bread, smoked trout pate, smoked haddock in a fabulous cheese sauce with more dipping bread, chicken pie with suet crust and sweet potato chips. Various...

We were given the et menu which reflected the catch of the day. Each course was well prepared and presented and delicious. The host offered just the right level of interaction and was happy to answer our cookery questions. We took our own wine and corkage is cheap. This was an excellent evening in terms of food, price and atmosphere.... More

We enjoyed the five course tasting menu (which sounds fancy and ott, but be assured it is not!) at Beaches on Saturday 3 September 2016. Beaches is BYO booze for a £2 per bottle corkage, so this keeps costs down. The menu costs c. £22.00 per person including tea/coffee. I am veggie, and Sue kindly created a menu specially for...
