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!

    We ate on a Sunday evening and we booked in advance. I would recommend booking for a Sunday as the restaurant was clearly fully booked around the time we ate. Service was excellent, we were offered water when we arrived - it was a very warm and sunny weekend - and given sufficient time to decide on drinks, which were delivered promptly. So we then had time to consider the menu. I’m a vegetarian and I had 4 starter choices and 2 main course choices. Again the time from ordering to food arriving was about right for us. We declined desert and took our dinks to sit in the quieter bar area. Not a cheap night, but lovely food and service.

    Lovely service and food, my only complaint is the cost of wine. £60 for a bottle of Malbec, seriously over the top!

    We both had the Rib Eye steak and it was really good. The service was excellent. The wine was good. We retired to the bar after the meal and it all worked well for us. Thanks. Paul and Barb.
