In summer 2019, this once-basic fish hut reopened after a £210K refurb doubling capacity and adding a new café/bar (the owners cut ties to two other venues on the Northumberland coast but kept on the neighbouring Fish Shack). Its formula has by-and-large remained intact, namely a “great setting by the harbour in Amble with river views towards a distant Warkworth Castle” (“sometimes a seal appears”) and the provision of “generous seafood platters” from an “excellent selection” (and also sourdough pizza).

“You can see the fishing boats bringing in the catch” from this “tiny”, “unpretentious hut” on the quayside, while eating “seafood cooked ‘par excellence’”. There’s also “sourdough pizza to change the way you think about pizza!” Founders Martin & Ruth Charlton, both chefs, have followed up their success here with three more venues on the Northumberland coast: Blyth Boathouse, La Famiglia and Fish Shack.

“In a quayside location that’s easily missed”, this “small” venue provides “caring service” and “a wonderful choice of fresh fish”. It’s “excellent value” too.

“Right on the harbour, with lovely views”, this “bustling” operation – manned by “personable and confident” staff – serves an “exceptional choice of fresh fish and seafood”.
