Stayed here a couple of nights. Room in the new annexe was excellent - new, very clean, good bathroom. Restaurant was good - fish and seafood lovely. Breakfast good too. Very good service all round.

First visit this yea. Sunday lunch was always excellent and this Sunday was no exception. New front of house staff did a great job and the chef provided us with a great roast beef dinner. Combined with the house red wine. perfection. O I forget to mention the Moule Mariniere was a perfect starter. Looking forward to next visit.

We visited here again after a short break of a couple of months and were disappointed by the menu, service and quality of food. Unfortunately whilst we have visited regularly we found the attention to detail lacking and the service slow and forgetful at our last visit We will return but not for a while

After years of ranting on about how good this place was, we finally agreed to travel up to Bamburgh for Sunday lunch. Whether it was the freshness of the various fish types consumed or the quality of the beef, carvery and Fillet Steak, it was faultless. The combinations of Oysters were particularly enjoyable.

Our greeting was warm & friendly as we enjoyed a relaxing drink prior to eating whilst waiting for all the party to arrive. The starters were well presented and plentiful and set... More

This is a great place to eat if you like fish. We had a wonderful meal which we both thought was excellent. We had the scallops and mussels to start followed by turbot and halibut. I would have liked a few more wines to choose from by the glass to complement the courses but overall we can't fault the food... More

An absolutely excellent meal, knocking on the door of Michelin standards. Along with superb service this is a must visit venue for any food lover. I had Moroccan mussels, delicious, followed by possibly the best Dover sole I have ever eaten. Completed the meal with a very tasty lemon tart. Good wines and a super setting. Well done to all...
