We arrived at this restaurant for a meal having just arrived at Alnwick. No greeting by the surly waiter, it was early evening, hardly anyone there, but told no tables available until later......we left !!

Good menu choice of both meat and fish at reasonable prices. Slightly on the high price for a bottle of wine. Quality of the food was good. Downside of this bistro was a lack of atmosphere and the waiter wasn't a particular "happy chappy".

We had one dinner here (for 3). The menu looked promising but was let down by the most basic of cooking errors. The crab cakes (crab is famed in this area) were almost entirely potato (a mere hint of crab)....and were cooked at too low...More

A lovely spot for a change from pub grub. Don't expect gigantic portions but do expect delicious tasty food which is nicely presented. Lots of choice and options. More realistic portions means you can indulge in a pud. Sticky toffee or crumble are fabulous. Will...More
