Friends and family gathered for my birthday party. Delicious buffet supplied and the staff could not have been more helpful, offering to go the extra mile for us when required. Ages ranged from 18 months to 70 years and we all had a brilliant evening. My only disappointment was 'the rain'! We couldn't use the garden and I had planned... More

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Small/basic site but fantastic base for exploring Northumberland. We stayed for 5 nights and would definitely stay here again - owners are sympathetically improving the facilities whilst retaining the old world charm/character of the pub. Pub is both child and dog friendly and the food is superb - a welcome reward after the walk back... More

Thoroughly enjoyed 3nights on this site even the walk up the hill from the town, as we could enjoy a guilt free pint and meal in the pub. Extremely pleasant owner, Susan and her staff. Will definitely be back. We have given 4 out of 5 only because the hook up point was just out of reach for pitch 5,... More

As locals we have been going back to The Rest since the business changed hands, the staff are friendly, the food is good old fashioned pub grub and cannot be faulted for the price that is paid, the whole atmosphere of the place was friendly and warm. Excellent Sunday lunches at decent prices. Would definitely recommend people go.

The Shepherds Rest Inn is a great little campsite ! We've just stayed there for 3 nights and were made very welcome by the new owners. They are currently upgrading the campsite the owner told me as he was working on the grounds. The site is only a 15-20 minute walk from Alnwick castle and gardens ! We had drinks... More

We have visited the Shepherds Rest now on 3 occasions since the new management have taken over. A lovely traditional pub with a relaxed family friendly atmosphere. Sunday lunch on all 3 occasions has been faultless even the kids cleaned their plates. I look forward to my next visit as we will definitely be back. See you soon!!

The Shepherds Rest in Alnwick is the up and coming place to go for Sunday lunch, traditional pub which has been refurbished to a good clean standard yet has kept some of the traditional features of the pub. Sunday lunch was excellent, compliments to the chef, meat cooked to perfection! Nothing was too much trouble, the conservatory on the back... More

We arrived shortly after 12 to a warm welcome and coal fire. Me and my wife ordered our drinks at the bar and took our seats. We ordered 2 beef roasts followed by a cheesecake. Roast were beautifully presented and tasted lovely. Then the passion fruit cheesecake was like none I've had before would highly recommend and we will see... More
