Last year the restaurant was commended for its use of local produce and friendly service, and the owners are hoping to win the 2018 prize so they can continue to raise Amble’s profile and see its coastal community thrive.

The Old Boat House Food group was founded in 2014 by husband and wife duo Martin and Ruth Charlton who now run four venues in Blyth and Amble, employing 32 staff. Their initial offering, The Old Boat House Amble has since become a nationally renowned destination for seafood fans. Mr Charlton believes this is partly due to their previous award wins.

More jobs created

“Last year’s award gave us the confidence to open a new venue in Amble, La Famiglia creating a further 6 full time jobs. We also launched Northumberland Restaurant Week to give people far and wide a chance to experience what the region has to offer with great value deals. We hope this proves our continued support in growing the local economy and providing employment opportunities in the area”.

To coincide with the award bid the food group plan to expand and modernise The Old Boat House which will create eight more jobs and draw more people to Amble Harbour Village, helping to further establish Amble as a growing tourist destination.

The restaurant group will be running a range of competitions and giveaways to celebrate the nomination and thank it’s customers for their support.

Results will be announced on the evening of Thursday 24th May.
