We always stop off here when heading down south, it's serves amazing food in very pleasant surroundings. This time we both had the pork belly with pad Thai sauce and it was amazing.

On visiting Alnwick for an overnight stay, we wanted to find somewhere to eat for an evening meal. Weather was poor, streets deserted but called into the shop selling all the Rum and got talking to the manager in there. He recommended Lilburns but said we would need to book as they were normally busy on a Saturday. We had... More

Visiting the area for a wedding and stayed in Alnwick and visited Lilburn's on a recommendation. I would recommend booking as it is a popular place, they accommodated our request to change the time of our booking as we were delayed at the wedding. The staff were amazing, they asked how the wedding was which was a nice personal touch... More

We called in early evening, not realising it was Valentine's Day. They squeezed us in and we had a lovely meal. Tuna steak, asparagus and goat's cheese tartlet, chicken balti and lasagne. All very tasty and filling.

We went for an evening meal at Lilburns on a cold and windy night. There was no one in the bar/cafe area downstairs (apparently, this is unusual). We went upstairs where we were greeted and shown to our table in the back corner of the small, pleasant and airy room. We had a starter of very crabb-y Craster crab cakes... More

We booked for lunch and were pleased we did. The receptionist advised that there was a large party booked in and advised that we should arrive a little early and our order would be taken ahead of them. My Craster crab cakes were a delicious starter as were my partners chilli prawns. Main came as duck breast, pink and perfect... More

Came here for a late lunch and were made to feel welcome. Service was friendly yet very professional, food was well presented and tasty. We had one of the specials, belly pork, which was tasty and very filling, also the sausage and mash which looked impressive! All at a reasonable cost.

We dropped in for lunch. I fancied soup but as I can't eat dairy asked and was told 'It contains butter.....but no problem I'll ask the chef." He came out and chatted and cooked me a dairy free broccoli soup from scratch and it was delicious! Thank you Lilburn's it was such a treat.
