Discover the very best of Northumbrian Cuisine


Our Head Chef and his expert team have handpicked local suppliers who source only the highest quality, freshest Northumbrian produce. So, whether you visit us for a feast with friends or as a couple looking for a cosy corner, we’ve got all the ingredients for every occasion.

As you would expect from a restaurant nestled on the coast of Northumberland, we have cast out the net when it comes to freshly caught local seafood. Our emphasis on local produce and ingredients doesn’t stop on the shoreline. Northumberland is blessed with some of the best butchers to be found anywhere in the world, all priding themselves on supplying the highest quality meats from local marts.

This is a dining experience not to be missed!

    Not the fastest service by any means but the food was well worth the wait and the price - and to be fair to the chef, it was very busy at Sunday dinner time. Friendly staff and a good atmosphere. Highly recommend.

    Very enjoyable. At first sight the atmosphere is not that of a top class restaurant but don’t be fooled by that. The food is excellent and the service very friendly and efficient.

    My main course was unpalatably salty- the staff were apologetic and gave me extra vegetables to balance the saltiness

    My parents and I had such a lovely meal and experience at TWH today. The staff are brilliant and the food was of an excellent quality. I was so so impressed overall by everything. I’ve found it really hard recently to find a restaurant/bar that offers a warm friendly and excellent service alongside such great quality dishes. I could go on forever about how delighted I was with our visit today. We will definitely be back. 6 stars!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
