Family Dining at The Old Storehouse, Amble

The Old Storehouse is a 200 year old building in the heart of Northumberland. With it's stone walls, stunning decor and intimate lighting, a warm welcome is guaranteed. Owned and managed by Park Leisure as part of the luxury Amble Links park, The Old Storehouse is fully accessible to the public with it's own car park and entrance before you reach the park barriers.


Before I visit anywhere I have to fully analyse their website and menu's. I was full of hope as The Old Storehouse promised locally sourced food that was cooked freshly to order. Their website states if you need anything changed or have any dietary requirements they will happily accommodate and there is a specials board which changes daily. All sounded very promising!

There is a lovely enclosed play area next to the pub's entrance which was a big hit with our children. They happily played outside while we enjoyed a glass of wine and perused the menu.




I loved the interior of the pub with all it's quirky and individual detail. The site had £3 million spent on it a few years ago and it certainly shows. The Old Storehouse has a modern and luxurious feel to it yet you wouldn't feel out of place relaxing in your shorts and t-shirt in the Summer. We loved the lighting (especially the feature wall that changes colour), the water fountains and candle lit tables.





Before I start with the food, I just want to point out that the service we received was absolutely perfect for families - these guys know what they are doing! We were asked if we would like our children's meals brought out with our starter and then again if they wanted dessert as soon as they had finished their main which was perfect for us as we weren't ordering a sweet. There is nothing worse than hanging around waiting for your children's dessert when it is near bedtime. Service was friendly, attentive and knowledgable and we never felt rushed. The staff are confident and did not need to check back with the kitchen staff every time we asked a question.

Food


To start we ordered the Seafood Platter which was bursting with some of the juiciest tempura king prawns we've ever had along with salt and pepper Calamari, local soft shell crab and hand breaded whitebait bites. The platter was overflowing with delicious fresh seafood and at only £12.50 was simply incredible. I bet this would be lovely to share with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc in the Summer.




For our mains I ordered North Sea Cod and hand cut chips and hubby ordered a 8oz Rothbury Family Butchers Beef burger with homemade ketchup and hand cut chips. It is refreshing to receive PROPER CHIPS in a pub as this seems like a rarity these days. Both of our portions were huge and we were both definitely struggling with our last few bites. Our food was gorgeous though and we had no complaints.




Children's Menu

As much care and attention has been devoted the children's menu as the main menu. Food is again, locally sourced and meals are cooked freshly to order. Children's meals are only £4 each which is a bargain as portions are huge and the quality is fantastic.



Mini Fillets of North Sea Cod with Hand Cut Chips and peas - £4



Spaghetti Bolognese made with 100% British Beef - £4



Free Range Chicken Breast, hand tossed in breadcrumbs and baked with hand cut chips and peas - £4

I cannot believe it was only £4 for FREE RANGE chicken goujons and hand cut chips - I don't know of anywhere that compares on price and quality!

Children's desserts are priced at £2.50 each and we were pleased to see thought had again gone into the presentation and extra points for serving homemade ice cream.


Children's homemade ice cream - £2.50


Children's Banana Split - £2.50

We were really impressed with every aspect of our evening at The Old Storehouse and bet it is now going to be a regular stopping place for us as we travel around Northumberland. At the moment, The Old Storehouse is closed on a Monday and Tuesday and open 11am-11pm Wednesday - Sunday.
