Tips from a local
Dine at Jasper’s Bistro, a small, romantic hidden gem just off the main street of Amble.

The food is excellent, and the staff go above and beyond to ensure you enjoy your whole evening or lunch time meal. Show your Coquet Cottages key ring to receive a complimentary glass of Prosecco with your evening meal, or free round of selected soft drinks with lunch! Just be sure to book to avoid disappointment.
Tips from a local
Go on a Puffin Cruise to Coquet Island, sailing from Amble dock. The island is home to over 40,000 nesting sea birds such as Puffins, Roseate Terns, Sandwich Terns, Arctic Terns, Kittiwakes and Eider Ducks which all nest in the summer months. A grey seal colony also stays at the island all year round and can be seen on the east side of the island. The waters around the island are really clear and sometimes you can see dolphins. Dave Grey’s boat trips are the best and have been operating for the longest.
Tips from a local
Amble Harbour Market
Take a stroll around the Sunday Market to see the town bustle in full flow. The traditional market is held around Amble Harbour every Sunday. From Seascape, head out around the pier to blow the cobwebs away, and the market begins at the other end. Don’t miss out the wooden pods in the Harbour Village, where you’ll find local businesses, artists and food huts, with a breath-taking view across the harbour and up the estuary with Warkworth Castle in the distance.
Tips from a local
Dine around the corner
The Old Boathouse is just around the corner from Hemingway’s and is not to be missed. They have a daily menu which changes depending on the catch from the harbour. Their bar is lovely just to enjoy a drink and the outside area has uninterrupted views of the marina and out to see. Gorgeous in the summer.
Tips from a local
Take a walk from Amble, along the estuary to Warkworth Medieval Village, and continue on to The Mill Walk around the castle, along the river and back to Amble. With wildlife to spot along the way (in particular the herons often perched along the far side of the River Coquet) and great views of the castle from all angles, this walk is stunning all year round. If you’d like a halfway break to warm up be sure to stop by Bertram’s Bistro Cafe at the bottom of Warkworth main street.
