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

Stayed here last Friday night for 2 nights with my partner as we were at a wedding on the Saturday. When we arrived, Bob was welcoming and ensured we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We enjoyed a few beers in the bar downstairs which has a lovely log fire burning away and a local band "the fiddlers"... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights on a B+B basis. Bob the owner was a real character with a story for every situation. From our arrival onward, nothing was too much trouble for him. We had ordered an evening meal on the day of our arrival and it was really tasty and home cooked. There was no... More

Had a great time in around Alnwick - possibly the friendliest British town we have ever visited, enhanced by a modest but lovely campsite run by one of the best and most full of character landlord/owners we have had the pleasure to meet . (cheers for the bush too Bob) The town and Castle are a 10 to 15 min... More

My brother & I both enjoyed our stay here. Cosy room, an excellent & generous cooked breakfast with special sausages in a dinging room with great character. Bob could not have been more welcoming. Great views of the lovely countryside.
