“Family get together”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Went to Shambles on Saturday first time There was 9 adults and a 9mth old child. We had a lovely meal upstairs over looking the bridge coming into Morpeth. The service was excellent and the food was more than pub grub but at very reasonable prices. We also got 10% of our bill. I had leg of duck on crushed potatoes with braised cabbage and hosin sauce it was so tasty and fresh salmon fish cakes for starter my husband had carrot and orange soup and then smoked haddock with poached egg on fondant potatoes with season veg Two of our party were veggies but they accomadated them with food that they enjoyed.It was very relaxed and had a lovely day in Morpeth.

“Great addition to Morpeth”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Good atmosphere, smart decor, good service - something a bit different in Morpeth. The bar downstairs always seems busy. There is a good choice of food and the portions are very generous. The steak was great accompanied by a good saucxe and proper handcut chips. All reasonably priced. Will definitely be back.

“Lovely Meal pity about the TVs”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Was recommended to this restaurant and booked for a celebration meal so dissapointed when first walked in to see football blasting out on TVs. Felt better when told there was a bar upstairs for the restaurant then walked into lovely little bar upstairs with nice settees and candles and couldn't beleive it .... FOOTBALL ON A TV!!
Once we were shown through to our table - What a lovely furnished restaurant and the food was excellent.

Why spoil a lovely restaurant by having a TV on the wall that no one was watching and if anyone did want to see a TV could always go downstairs to the ground floor bar.

Would highly recommend this restaurant but don't bother with pre meal drinks go straight into table in restaurant which was lovely
