Excellent local produce well prepared and served. Rupert's knowledge of the local ales and cheese made our dining experience very special.

Had read reviews of The Jackdaw and many seemed to mention the 'quirkyness' and very little about the food. As also being part shop selling lovely paperweights/glass objects/ cards and other trinkets it may well appear a bit quirky but the very small dining area is very pleasant and clean. The owner at first appeared a little 'shy' if thats... More

We enjoyed a great meal here last week. Unfortunately, we were the only people in this very small restaurant which meant it lacked a little atmosphere but the food and service could not be faulted. The main courses imparticular were superbly cooked - I had a duck breast and husband had the lamb chops. Both were cooked pink and were... More

This was such a surprise when we entered - but a good one! Only 4 tables in what appeared to be my Grannys' parlour! (It's a small gallery too!) A decent menu, served by Rupert the owner and cooked by Gillian his wife. Very wholesome, and we were made to feel very welcome. Worth a visit.

We were staying in Warkworth and looked forward to our visit to the Jackdaw. What a disappointment!!! The food was poor, my sea trout was really overcooked, it was all highly over-priced and we were rushed through our meal. All in all it was a bad experience!

We have looked at visiting the Jackdaw for some considerable time but only recently were able to fit our visit to it being open. Well we wish it had been closed. Yes it's different and quirky but lacks atmosphere. But worse was to come. Having placed our order my wife had requested a rib eye steak medium and no running... More

Having cycled down the Sustrans path from Alnmouth, this delightful, but old fashioned restaurant provided a most welcome lunch after our exertions. Lemon sole, with saute potatoes, carrots and shredded cabbage - I didn't think the vegetables would be suitable partners for the fish, but it was well seasoned and balanced. Followed by crème brulee. The husband and wife team... More

I've reviewed this before and want to say again that this place serves exceptionally good food. It offers old-fashioned style and ambience, and the very best of home cooking. It's not for children, and probably not for larger groups; but for small gatherings or couples a deux, it really is the best in Warkworth. And I say that as someone... More

We dined at the Jackdaw on a recommendation from a friend. We were a little apprehensive before we arrived having read some of the reviews. The 'restaurant' looks like a trinket shop from the outside and upon entering it was realised that it doubles up as one. We were greeted by the owner who showed us through to our table... More

Went on a lunch time with my partner and his mother and father. I had chicken liver pate, sausage and mash and then brown sugar meringues. Everything was home cooked and very tasty. Service was very good
