No idea what the last reviewer was on about. We both had steak & fries last night. The were good and we enjoyed the meal. The sticky toffee pudding was for once a light sponge style which was not so heavy and all the better for it. I enjoyed the mixed fish pate as a starter. Attentive service wihtout being... More

Visited for my mum's 70th. While the menu choice isn't vast, wise in my opinion for a restaurant of this small size, the options are very good. Between the four of us we sampled a good range of starters, mains and desserts and the quality of the food was very good. Lovers of fish and seafood rejoice, but there Hooked... More

Could not fault the standard of cooking - but very disappointed with the service. Young people who obviously have not been properly trained, very pleasant but not capable of being in charge front of house.

We decided to try Hooked as we had often walked passed it when visiting other restaurants and thought we'd give it a go. The restaurant was very quiet and therefore lacking in atmosphere. Once seated our drinks orders were taken and menus left with us. There were two choices of beers on the menu however neither were available so my... More

We dined at this restaurant on New Years Eve. From the moment I first booked it has been a positive experience. Instant confirmation after I booked and staff were helpful when I had to amend booking later on. The meal consisted of a set menu with 6 courses. The food was of good quality, tasty, each course was interesting and... More

Whilst staying in Alnmouth for the New Year we managed to book into Hooked on Wednesday 4th (before they closed for two weeks) and we weren't disappointed. There were four of us and another couple came in later so it was a little quiet. However the food was lovely. We all had the crab cakes which were delicious- the chilli... More

I have to start by saying this was almost a 5 star review, but a couple of small things knocked it down, it is a very nice restaurant however. As mentioned elsewhere, it is a limited menu so be prepared for that - I like this aspect and they happily did a dish with no mushrooms for my daughter so... More

We ate there recently on two nights when staying at the Saddle (see separate review). Hooked operates in the Saddle dining room. Both meals were simply some of the best and most enjoyable meals we have eaten for a very very long time. Immense care is taken with presentation so that a simple and deliciously dressed salad looks wonderful and... More
