Lovely setting, friendly staff and great value. Highly recommended restaurant, we were lucky to find it as we were staying in Bamburgh but was worth it and only a ten minute drive away!

The interior of this place which describes itself as a pizzeria and creperie is surprisingly sophisticated and modern. The menu ranges from ambitious sounding cuisine to pizzas, crepes and pasta. On a chilly Wednesday evening it was quiet with much of the restaurant empty. Service...More
