Lilburn's is right in the centre of Alnwick. It is a small restaurant with seating downstairs and upstairs. If you go upstairs you can catch a glimpse of the kitchen and savour the wonderful aromas. Service was prompt and very friendly. The food is delicious and there's plenty of choice. I can thoroughly recommend it.

Went went for a spot of lunch and opted for their homemade soups. Parsnip and sweet potato. It was delicious and served piping hot. They seemed to offer a lot of choice on their menu and looking around at what other people were having, all looked very nicely presented and tasty. If we are in Alnwick again and need some... More

Very good bistro food, family owners create a nice atmosphere. The upstairs is better in my view as downstairs for ambience but don't expect posh seating. We enjoyed our meals here but the surroundings are more café than bistro. Nice friendly staff

Went in for the first time today with my 2 children, 8 and 11. We ordered potato skins were on the specials board. Not cheap, I think £4.95. Normally the kids love them but they were really big with a tiny pot of cream and chive dip. The salad looked lovey though with pea shoots and a slice of orange.... More

Four of us stopped off for drinks, two having Filter coffee, one Latte and one a pot of tea. Service was prompt and the drinks were hot and freshly made. There were lots of tea options but no decaffeinated which was a shame. Look forward to having a meal there in the future.

High quality food, good portions sizes, a little expensive but nice. Nothing on the menu totally unusual but they do standard fare well.

Called in for a drink and a snack and were treated perfectly by friendly and efficient staff. We only had a sharing snack which was served promptly and the presentation was impressive. The place is spotlessly clean which is important to us and the price was reasonable.

A holiday in Alnwick wouldn't be the same without a meal at Lilburns. The food, the staff in fact everything about Lilburns is perfect. One of the highlights of our holiday!
