Shore and Simple  

Seaburn’s latest shoreside restaurant, North, offers a taste of the sea, serving a selection of seafood small plates as well as meat and vegetarian tapas-style dishes. After opening in December last year the new casual dining restaurant has impressed locals with its selection of good food, carefully-selected wines and creative cocktails. Look out for weekly specials – recent dishes have included grilled sardines with garlic pesto and focaccia croutons, and mezcal-cured salmon.

A Love for Local

New and Noteworthy  

Under new management, The Biddick in Washington offers an elegant dining experience with innovative dishes and a vibrant bar – perfect for evening drinks.
