There were 10 in our party and we were accommodated with ease. Food was very well presented and beautifully cooked. The restaurant specialises in fish dishes and these are imaginative and use very fresh ingredients but there are other options as well which are just as well prepared. Service was perfect, just the right level of attentiveness; the ambiance was... More

Popped in here on our way home after a lovely week in bamburgh. This restaurant is gorgeous the food is great and all the staff were lovely. We were starving and got there half an hour before they properly opened but the staff let us have a cup of tea in the bar whilst they got everything sorted. I imagine... More

Unlike many other upmarket restaurants, this one was not full of overly elaborate food. I had the best lemon sole I have even had and the bread with caramelized onions was, as the delightful waiter admitted, impossible to resist.

Great place to stay on the edge of the town with a mere 15 minute walk to the castle. Parking is limited, but enough spaces if you arrive before lunch or dinner as the restaurant is extremely popular. The rooms are very spacious, bed comfortable. In need of redecoration in places. The staff were so helpful and attentive; really chatty... More

Two wonderful meals - last Sunday 7/8 and Thursday 11/8. Attention to detail and food was perfect. Wish we had this restaurant in Hale, Cheshire or Deia in Mallorca. Well done for a superb experience.

enjoyed a meal here with friends. Good for a special occasion or a treat as quite expensive but food is good quality and well worth a visit. Service a little slow but well worth the wait. I recommend trying the lobster it was delicious. When I am next in the area I would definitely try again.

Visited for evening meal as had been recommended for its seafood menu. Menu read well, and wanted the halibut, but unfortunately, this had sold out before we could order. We chose a second option and the whole meal was very tasty and well presented. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend a meal here.

Thank Alouette25
