Food ok waited for nearly a hour. Tables seems squashed together. For the quality of the food and the portions the food is very overpriced. It is probably as there is no competition in the village .More

We couldn't fault the food, service, prices, or the enjoyable candlelit restaurant ambience. It was warm and comfortable too. It was all very pleasant indeed. Sadly, however, the McPherson's Shiraz wine was very disappointing, but not bad enough to complain about. I've always had much...More

A busy restaurant with a good menu. The food was very good, nice portions and well presented. Staff were friendly and the evening was every enjoyable. Their pizzas and pasta are very good, freshly prepared, but they have quite an extensive menu to try.

When visiting a local pub in a small village you really don’t expect to be treated to this standard of authentic Italian food and fresh seafood! An under rated spot to say the least and a true hidden gem

Great décor, service and staff..not forgetting the super menu. Lovely to find such a buzzy and excellent Italian restaurant in the well kept secret of Northumberland...which is Alnmouth.

Found by accident and so pleased we did. Highlight: crab stuffed pasta baked in the oven - truly delicious. Also recommended: mussels in a picante sauce, linguine marinara and linguine carbonara. The take away fish and chips are excellent, too. Nice atmosphere and relaxed, but...More

It is child friendly and I am sure that if you tell your waitress about the allergy I think they will be able to help.
