Ate here with family and few days ago. A large, clean friendly establishment with ample parking and good access to both Alnwick itself and The A1 North and South.
Food was good and the menu was adequate although I personally thought it was a little on the expensive side for what is at the end of the day pub grub.
All in all its worth considering if your looking for somewhere close to Alnwick or close to the A1.

Thank Ian W

I met my brother here to have a light lunch as we both had long journeys ahead of us on a very wet day. The restaurant was quite busy, nicely furnished and plenty of room.
We both agreed that the menu was expensive for where it was, on an industrial estate in Alnwick. Alnwick prices are not generally that expensive. We ordered at the bar; two carrot and coriander soups with bread. The soups duly arrived, looking nothing like carrot, and one piece of bread each. We asked for more bread before we started the soup. We both tasted the soup and agreed that it was like water with ground coriander added. We sent it back and ordered something else. We didn't really get an apology or a reason why it was so bad. They did reduce or bill by 10% at the end. The establishment is well placed for coming off the A1 but I don't think I will be going back a) because of the pricing and b) the soup, a mainstay of any restaurant, was inedible.

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear this! We try our very best to ensure everyone who walks through our doors has a fantastic meal with us so that they return to dine again and recommend us, such a shame we didn't meet your expectations this time.
The prices reflect our home cooked and fresh to order food, we use local ingredients if possible. We always appreciate feedback and please be assured your comments about our food prices will be passed on. However, we do think £4.95 is a very reasonable price and is competative to our surroundings.
We do hope you come back to give us another try!

Visited Friday evening had a lovely meal of fish and chips. Prices a tad expensive but you don’t mind paying as it was delicious. Met our wedding party friends. The staff was very courteous even though we took over the bar area on Friday. Saturday evening we came back from the wedding and they kept the bar open for a while. We did not stay in the hotel as we took our caravan to a site nearby. Our friends stayed and commented the rooms were nice size. Really good customer service, very clean and so close to Alnwick castle and gardens.

Visited for lunch with children & sat in a booth so we could see the outdoor children’s play area. The food was nice and reasonably priced. The children enjoyed their meals. We ordered the potato skins sharing starter & it was huge 4 if us struggled to eat them all. The staff were very friendly & helpful.
