Eating Out


There are lots of places around to eat and it’s a bit of a hard one for us to say which the best is but we have decided to go on what we have tried and suits our palettes and needs.

We love Elan a small Italian style restaurant in the village. It’s very welcoming, cozy and has a lovely feel about it. The menu is not extensive but good things come in small bundles. We recommend you book as it’s small and gets very busy even in the winter.

We have two very good Indian restaurants and it’s hard to separate the two as they are just as good as each other. The Spice House and The Brasserie.

The Links Hotel has a very large menu and has a wide verity of food. I would recommend you book as it does get busy.

The Olde Ship and the Bamburgh Castle Inn are opposite each other and have good pub grub food. The Ship is very olde worlde and has good real ale and brass everywhere. The Bamburgh Castle Inn has a view overlooking the harbor and the Farne Islands. Both have great beer gardens too.

For Fish and Chips we recommend Neptune and Lewis’s Restaurants. There is also lots of good cafes around for a lite snacks.


Further Afield

The Ship at Low Newton is truly a great pub and gets very busy in the summer. Lots of people use it for a stop over as they pass after a long walk and behind the pub is what we call the Scrapes which is a great spot for wildlife.

Beadnell Towers and the Craster Arms in Beadnell are also good pub grub.

The Mizen Head in Bamburgh is a really good place for seafood but they also have different choices for those who are into fresh fish.

Further down the road in Bamburgh you have the Victoria Hotel and the Castle Inn which both have good pub grub.

The Treehouse in Alnwick is actually in a tree and is a tree house restaurant if you fancy something a little different.
