Pinnacles. It is located right in the centre of the town and to back up my claim that they are the best, the celebrity chefs the Hairy Bikers nominated Pinnacles for the accolade of best Fish and Chips in the whole country! They have been operating in Seahouses for over twenty years and offer a comfortable restaurant as well as a takeaway service. I like to grab a takeaway and if it's a rough day sit in the car park and watch a stormy sea crashing over the rocks and harbour wall while enjoying my wonderful lightly battered Fish and fluffy Chips.
If you have checked on TripAdvisor, as many people do to find the best places to eat out in Seahouses, the top-rated restaurant is The Open Door at St Cuthbert's House. While they did offer excellent cuisine, unfortunately they are no longer serving evening meals for the public. The business itself however is still going strong and they are currently the North East's B&B of the year!
The Black Swan 2 Union Street, Seahouses, Northumberland 01665 720 227
The Black Swan should be near the top of your list if you need to eat out in Seahouses. This Bar and restaurant is located at the South end of the Harbour on the junction between Union Street and Main Street. The restaurant is somewhat tucked away behind the bar area when you enter and is open from Mothering Sunday through to the end of October. Excellent quality food is to be found here and the they have become famous for their pies, which I wouldn't dare tackle unless I was very hungry! The bar, however, remains open all year round.
The Olde Ship Inn Harbour Area, Seahouses, Northumberland - 01665 720 200
Another Public House that offers good quality food and has an excellent location. Their Beer Garden at the back of the pub has the wonderful benefit of stunning views across the harbour, making this a lovely place to have a drink if the weather is agreeable. They offer a good mix of cask ales in a quirky and cosy bar.
The Bamburgh Castle Inn Harbour Area, Seahouses, Northumberland - 01665 720 283
This Inn is situated right on the front of the harbour, you really can't miss it. The views from the restaurant out across the harbour really are lovely and on a sunny day, like at The Olde Ship, it's good to sit out and enjoy some sea air. They offer an extensive menu which includes an excellent choice for the kids. They are CAMRA accredited for serving their real ales and also LocAle accredited for their local real ales, which all have different and unique characters. There are cheaper places to enjoy a meal in Seahouses, but this is certainly a case of getting exactly what you pay for... and with a great view!
The Spice House 53 Main Street, Seahouses, Northumberland - 01665 720 345
has the best reputation for Indian Food in Seahouses. They have a restaurant and also offer a takeaway service. Staff are friendly and the service is good, if a little chaotic when it gets really busy in an evening, which it regularly does. The food is fresh and delicious though, and well worth a visit if you like a bit of spice in your meal.
