The gallery exhibits a wide range of good quality art by both local and regional artists in a lovely space.The owners are very friendly and the coffee and cakes are superb- well worth a visit especially as dog friendly.

My wife is disabled. With enormous effort she managed to get down the slope to the front steps, then up these mountainous steps into the gallery, by which time she was exhausted. I had rung beforehand to ask about access. No-one told me over the phone what we were told once we got inside; that "There is a door next to the road we could have opened for you had we known".

The gallery itself holds some lovely (but generally pricey) art. The cafe is attractive although of limited fare. The person who then opened the street-level door we had assumed was to separate living accommodation so that we could exit was very pleasant

A sign saying "If you are disabled please knock here" or similar would have solved the whole problem.

This gallery is well set out and lovely and warm in this winter weather. A nice little coffee house is in one room of the building and the coffee is good. Art is in the eye of the beholder so I leave the contents to you so please go and look around as part of a lovely day in Alnmouth

The art in this place is really suited to my taste so I love it. We met at least two different staff members and both were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We couldn't resist the cake either so got some to take away!

I've recently taken up painting, and was delighted to find this place so close to my wife's holiday rental house. There's a lot of surprisingly good stuff here, and the prices won't make your eyes water.
