Great restaurant

I too am looking for a restaurant, within a half hour or so of Newcastle, for a very special birthday meal. Quiet, intimate, cosy, great food, not pub grub.Seafood if possible. Don't mind paying a decent amount for something special.

For seafood and a quiet location, this is it.

The Buck's Head is the only place I would suggest for a special meal near Newcastle. There are a lot of very ordinary places - but Buck's Head is great.

Finally got to Number 23 in Warrenpoint a few Friday's ago and had the most fabulous scallops and John Dory so if you like seafood this is the place. I have heard a few people mutter about the portions when I raved about the food after my visit, but then if you are more into steak and chips or large portions of carbs go for some pub grub as there are loads of good places for that. However, if you are into quality rather than quantity with sauces to die for on each dish go for No 23. We had a starter and main course each with a lovely bottle of Fleurie (£19) and it came to around £75 including a £5 tip.
