We ate here last year and really enjoyed our my. We were not disappointed on our second visit. I had the chowder to start and it is amazing. I highly recommend it. We both decided to have lobster for our main course. It was excellent, however with so many fabulous fish dishes to choose from it is very difficult to decide.
Can’t wait to eat here again next time we are in Northumberland.

Well, I booked here due to my seafood loving friend, she was not disappointed, I could see the joy in her face when her monkfish arrived. She had previously told me it was her favourite dish, and this seemed to cement her favouritism. I had the fish fingers as I'm really not a fish lover, they were delicious and well presented. Would I come back here again, if I was with her, definitely, she ate her meal with such gusto, I would certainly pay to bring her that delight once more.

We decided to have a long lunch so booked for 1230. Seafood platter to share was chosen and it lived up to and exceeded expectations! Having eaten platters at the world famous Doyle’s in Sydney and more recently in the South of France I can honestly say that The Potted Lobster was easily as good. Quantity wise it was more than we could manage and as a 6ft 6’’ guy with an enormous appetite that’s saying something!
Do not think you can manage a starter as well.
We will be returning on our next visit in June 2020 and it will be booked as a priority!
Try it. You will not be disappointed unless you turn up and it is fully booked!

After a long drive to see the castle, we decided to look for lunch.

A lovely young lady greeted us and sat us down for lunch and nothing was too much trouble.

I had the fish and chips and my partner had the sea bream with crab, pea and linguine base.

Both dishes were to die for. My fish was battered and the batter was perfect, just melted in my mouth.
Well worth the price.
My partner had never had bream, and loved it.

Although this was a short and sweet visit, we will return on our next visit north.
The young lady said that dinner gets booked up very quickly, so be sure to book in advance, however lunch was pretty dead there on the week day we visited

Enjoy
