Great for a snack or a meal with a good choice of sandwiches or full cooked meals. Enjoy a sit down in truly fantastic surroundings.

My self, my mother in-law, mother in-laws mam and my 2 children all went for our mothers day meal at the Sanctuary on the 26th March. When we arrived we were greeted by a very pleasant gentleman called Martin, he showed us to our table which was beautifully laid out. The room had a lovely atmosphere about it and was... More

The venue seem to only offer a set menu dining experience once every month or so but I would seriously recommend a visit to those who enjoy fine dining at a reasonable price. The room was full but still... More

I am a discerning diner, and have frequented many of the top restaurants in the world, including Burj al arab, and the Star at Harome closer to home, & I can say hand on heart that... More

My Husband took me for a surprise meal on Saturday evening and I did not know where we were going until we arrived at Alnwick Castle. We had a lovely evening and the meal was truly excellent and really fine dining. The room was nice and peaceful with different coloured candles scented candles on each table - most tables had...
