Turning up at around 7pm on spec, we were slightly apprehensive when the ground floor bar was heaving with a young and lively crowd. However, going upstairs to a small, quiet lounge bar, we were offered menus and drinks by an extremely pleasant server. The menu was fairly short but some interesting choices, and the wine was very reasonably priced. Our orders were taken promptly, and we were soon shown to our table. The starter was huge, and enjoyable, and the main courses were also on the generous side, and pretty good. The room is comfortable, nice view over the river, and the service was really excellent. Prompt, friendly, professional. Good prices (frankly I think they need to reduce their portion sizes or raise their prices), and really no complaints. I suspect it may get a little full of young parties later, but it was a very pleasant atmosphere when we were in.

Had a great family meal on the 19.95 menu. Food was very good as was the service. Was wary after reading some reviews about eating in the bar downstairs but this was a professional job. Despite a number of sittings being scheduled we never felt rushed.
Mum in law had a great time.

Very good bar with a good atmosphere, good choice of drinks and competitive pricing. Served local craft beers as well as typical brands. Located over 3 floors.

The atmosphere was lovely, I really like the layout, hence the pictures, food was good we had chicken burger and steak, 2 drinks and it was £20, not bad value. Really appreciated the staff approach, not coming to the table every few minutes, brilliant. Also music choice was VERY good when we were in on 20th march, thank you for a lovely lunch we will be back.

We had lunch at Shambles today - it was a sunny day and we sat in the window watching out at the traffic and people going by. Shambles is nice because you can sit at high tables, couches or go further back and have a room almost to yourself - at least through the day. There is also a restaurant upstairs but we went for the bar menu which was perfect.

Very generous portions - I had the roast pepper sandwich with goats cheese which came with salad and crisps, my husband had a roast pork sandwich which came with delicious gravy and we had a portion of fries too. All beautifully presented, perfectly cooked and at a good price. Friendly staff, a relaxed atmosphere - a perfect place for lunch in Morpeth.
