Good food, great service, and a warm welcoming atmosphere. There is a shop with some hard to find food items. We had a breakfast with great coffee, and went back for a lunch snack the next day and the service was just as good.

After descending the stairs into what was obviously a cellar we could see that there was a cosy, welcoming restaurant. We had a delicious brunch and attended to by very cheerful, helpful staff. It was clearly a popular eating place as every table was taken....More

Food was good and portions generous but the service rather brusque. Clearly this establishment is not short of trade but that is probably due in part to the compact nature of the place. We'd been put off on several previous occasions because it is unfortunately...More

Highly recommended for a snack or afternoon tea. The staff are attentive and very friendly - nothing is too much trouble. Would recommend everything on the menu, especially the toasted sandwiches. Access is down a set of stairs but do not let this deter you...More

Grannies Tea room and Delicatessen was established around 1984, then the tearoom only held a couple of tables placed within the shop. It was only later, in 1989, that the intimate downstairs tea room was developed within the basement where the old fashioned coal chutes, old style steps, fireplace and flagstone flooring can still be seen. Grannies is a strong advocate for the local food movement in Alnwick, and offers a wide range of local produce within the deli, shop and tea room.
