Our view of the place was tainted from the first by the floor making sticky noises whenever you walked on it. Is a teenage pub and no doubt staff go home at 2am not wanting to wash a floor at that time. Food OK

We spent some time trying to find somewhere to eat that served a drink too and we were not disappointed. Excellent value for money. The lentil soup was very tasty and the crusty roll was lovely and fresh. Highly recommended if you are visiting Alnwick.

Good value food and drink with the occasional live band. Lots of room i'm not sure how many covers but you will still get served quickly. Parking out side if you are driving.
