At home on the Northumberland coast, Seahouses is a charming beachside village renowned for its rugged North Sea views and the locally-caught seafood. Exploring all the village has to offer will have you working up an appetite, so you’ll need to find a spot to refuel.


Not sure where to go? Here we navigate the best restaurants in Seahouses, from the best fish and chips joints to romantic spots for couples. Fancy tucking into some proper pub grub in front of a glowing fire after a long walk in your wellies? Or prefer getting dressed up and heading for a family meal? Here are some places to eat in Seahouses, whatever the mood or menu.

The best fish and chips

As a fishing village, Seahouses is synonymous with fish and chips. Two standout spots that encapsulate this coastal tradition are Neptune Fish Restaurant and Lewis’s Fish Restaurant.


Traditional fish and chips at their finest – at Neptune Fish Restaurants, you’ll get to savour the taste of some proper fish and chips (chunky ones, just as they should be!) Take a load off after walking around Seahouses or enjoying a fun day at the beach, and choose from a wide menu of locally sourced food. It has everything you’d expect from a proper fish and chip shop, plus it’s open seven days a week. If you don’t feel like fish, tuck into steak and kidney pie, burgers, and sausages. There’s a menu for little bellies, too. The friendly restaurant is perched on the edge of the roundabout on Main Street.


Lewis’s Fish Restaurant is a rustic little spot also on Main Street that’s ideal for filling rumbling tummies after exploring the village. You can take a seat in a cosy restaurant area (dogs can wait indoors with you) or take your food to go. You’ll find traditional battered cod and haddock, as well as crab, monkfish and lobster! They catch many fish themselves. You can’t get fresher than that! Not a fish fan? They also cater for meat lovers and vegetarians.

Proper pub grub

Immerse yourself in the heart of Seahouses’ hospitality at Black Swan Inn, a rustic gastropub located near the water’s edge, boasting a sunny patio. The restaurant offers a four-part dining experience, meaning you can choose which setting you’d prefer to dine in, from the trendy, casual bar area, to the ambient orangery.

The Inn prides itself on its seafood offering. And with locally caught lobster, famous Lindisfarne oysters and a catch of the day, we can see why. Their expertise extends beyond seafood, however, with lamb rump, pork belly and wood pigeon on the menu too. They also offer a Sunday lunch. There are plenty of vegan options and many dishes can be made to cater for coeliacs, too. Bonappetit!

Walking down the hill towards the beach on Main Street, you’ll spot the welcoming The Olde Ship Inn. Eating here combines the charm of a historical setting with the breathtaking beauty of the sea. As you tuck into your meal, the inn’s cosy atmosphere and rustic decor transport you to a bygone era, creating a sense of warmth and nostalgia. Quite fittingly, the menu offers an array of local seafood and a selection of traditional pub favourites.
