Nipped for lunch today with my 3 year old and came across this place and it really needs a mention. Lovely place! Home made cakes which are to die for, nice coffee and really nice fresh sandwiches. Really lovely staff 100% will be back

We have just had our lunch at the Tea Cosy Tea Rooms and very nice it was too. I had a lovely tuna sandwich and my wife had a cheese and pickle - both came with a salad garnish and were large and delicious. The staff were ever so friendly and service was very quick without hardly any wait. We... More

Nice food and great service. Only a small menu though but all 8 in our group managed to find their favourites from the menu.

cozy Bistro ,very central to Alnmouth , small but very adequate menu and the food was excellent. The beef dish and pork belly especially liked by our group. We had had a good meal the previous night in another Inn in Alnmouth but we had no regrets in eating at Bistro 23 as the service food and value just edged... More

Absolute gem of a Bistro in this small town. Only turns into a Bistro on Wednesday and Saturday, but well worth it, otherwise we would have eaten here more! Food was sublime and the Restaurant Manager and Chef were super friendly and informative. Nice decor and wine too.

We had a very welcome New Years Day brunch here after watching the annual Alnmouth Dip on a cold, blustery but beautiful beach. The hot chocolate was the best one tasted in all the weekend's hot chocolates partaken! The bacon muffin and bacon/egg stottie were also well received served by very friendly faces in a lovely little café which doubles... More

We come here whenever we visit the lovely Alnmouth. Unfortunately we've not had the opportunity to visit on an evening but during the day the cafe is great. We especially enjoy coming at Christmas so we can have the festive tea cosies!

Had such a good evening. The new menu is delightful with a couple of traditional favourites still included. The lobster and haddock starters are exquisite and the main courses cooked perfectly. The sweets were light and the wine very drinkable. Service as ever was excellent. Such a good catch up with friends and a perfect venue for such an evening.

I had the Tuna melt in a stottie, you can have it in a ciabatta, on both occasions. On the second I had wholemeal rather than white as they had run out. The wholemeal was nice and the homemade coleslaw that come with it is lovely. The filter coffee comes with free refills which was a nice surprise. I did... More

So many places to chose from around Alanmouth so what do you do you ask a local. So we did. We were directed to this lovely place where we had a beautiful bowl of home made soup followed by Tuna Ciabattas and salad. Great food. Great fast friendly service. Reasonably priced. Thank you. "We'll be back!"
