The staff were attentive at first but we were never asked if wanted a dessert or another drink. The food was good but overpriced for what we had. We were placed on a small table, probably because there were only two of us, which meant that our view of the river was blocked by a fence.

Outdoor set up was really good,, especially as it poured down. We waited an hour and 20 minutes for main courses. We did have potato skins to start but this was a long time with children.
Food arrived in 2 parts and we had to ask for some of the items. As a result of this the first mains to arrive were cold. Such a shame as the food was tasty.
I've heard lots of amazing reviews so hope this is just reopening teething problems.

Lovely place. Fab food and staff very attentive. Due to covid restrictions we were eating outdoors and the weather was rather challenging. We were looked after very well and even ended up receiving water bottles as it was rather cold. All in all a great bank holiday afternoon out.

The team were great, especially the ladies that served us. We were also served by a guy who was a little abrupt but overall it was a great meal, the food was pretty outstanding and we’d definitely go back. It was advertised that blankets and hot water bottles were available, but when we asked there were no blankets as they apparently hadn’t been washed and we were given one hot water bottle between three of us. Would still go back though as the food was lovely.

We were really cold sat outside which was expected and the food went pretty cold quickly. We did wait over an hour for food but when it arrived it did taste delicious

After hearing such great things about caboose I have to admit I was a little disappointed.

I’ll start with the positive, the food was presented beautifully and the taste was wonderful.
It’s such a shame that the food arrived cold.

Maybe it was just our experience but it felt as though we were forgotten about. We noticed many other guests were offered blankets and hot water bottles by staff, it’s a bit disappointing that we had to ask.
We ordered a glass of wine for my other half which took over half an hour to come and again we had to prompt for dessert.
Maybe this is a one off and we’ve just been unfortunate but for the first meal out after lockdown it just didn’t live up to expectations

First time dining here and we will definitely be back. Food was delicious and more than enough. We possibly ordered too much as didn’t anticipate the starters/small plates being so big. Beautiful scenery overlooking sea and harbour area. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff very attentive. Due to covid rules having to be outside hot water bottles and blankets were supplied. Heaters would’ve been nice but all adds to our memories of these strange times. Didn’t spoil the night but looking forward to spending many summer nights out there as well. Possibly the best spot in Blyth. Will definitely be back and would also like to try the breakfasts sometime soon after a dog walk. Thank you for a lovely evening!

Food was lovely but the wait was too long. We were served breakfasts drinks immediately but the food didn’t arrive for 50 mins. Staff said it was busy but we felt the wait was too long especially sitting outside. We heard others saying the same thing.

Went for birthday meal & was not dissapointed, hubby had steak & toffy apple crumble pie & I had fish & biscoff brownie, delicious!! Well worth it, only downside was the fact it was so cold having to eat outside, will be better in few weeks when we can enjoy the experience in a warm space!

Good food, good service. Drinks slow . Told 20 min wait for cocktail then once it arrived told our table was needed in 10 mins.
No que, table free snd at least 3 other tables of people were there and established before us, meaning they too exceeded their time limit???why was it our table that was needed?? We spent £80 and would have spent more ..sort of put a dampener on the night ..

Brilliant, really appreciate the trouble the chef went to producing an alternative vegan meal due to milk allergy.

I visited Caboose with my mum for brunch. The menu was fantastic and varied, I struggled to choose just one option!

I went for the Full English and my mum had the “Eggs Hebredian”. Good sized portions, fresh, quality produce and reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly and attentive. My friends and I visited last Saturday for dinner and that was a brilliant evening too.

Caboose is definitely my new favourite place to eat, looking forward to working my way through that fab menu 🙂
