Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 December 2015

This place was just fab! The Potted Lobster and Crab starter was devine. I went slightly off piste and went for the twice cooked lamb with mash as main. Unbelievable! The most tender lamb I have ever tasted and full of flavour. We were greeted by 2 lovely girls who were charming, friendly and professional. Of all the restaurants we visited in Bamburgh, this was our favourite. Very reasonable prices for the quality and presentation of the food. One minor criticism was that it was a bit noisy but I believe they just opened and perhaps the addition of some curtains or rugs might absorb some sound.

Its not all about the fish although the Potted Lobster and Crab was one of the most devine starters I have ever tasted. I went off piste and had the melt in the mouth twice cooked Lamb. Unbelievable flavours, food and two wonderful waitresses all set in comfortable surroundings.

Recently opened by Chef Richard Simm who we have followed for many years,especially more recently when he has put Amble on the eating map with Secco and Boathouse.
The décor at Bamburgh is more up market,and the menu is more mixed with meat as well as fish.You only get what you pay for and the meal was good value,house wine good,service efficient,neither too fast or slow,so an asset to the area,which already has a range of eating places but popular for year round visitors.
