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...

Saw the pretty coloured houses from the road took a detour and found this little gem. Beaches café. Had crab fishcakes and a prawn lobster bun with sweet potato fries. My partner is not a massive seafood fan but he loved it. Delicious and really great service sat out on the pavement and watched the world go by. If in... More

Next door to the beaches restaurant, the same owners have opened a fish and chip shop with a difference. Open 12-6ish (as they say themselves) and just on certain days (currently Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays). Very limited menu - on the day we visited, smoked haddock, crab meat in a bun, and...lobster and chips. For £9.95 I had a half... More

We went on a sat evening , one sitting at 7:30 , 5 course taster menu priced at £22.50 . Fish soup , rolled herring. Smoked haddock , ham and mash in... More

Probably our 5th or 6th meal at the Beaches. We visit Alnmouth once a year or so and each time we book a table here. It's small and intimate, unhurried and relaxed. You never have to shout while talking as is the case in so many places. Donald is very welcoming and always has the time chat. You won't be... More
