My family came from all over the UK to Lilburns Restaurant for my Dad's 70th Birthday surprise dinner. The staff were in on the surprise & they couldn't have been more friendly & helpful even putting up the balloons we'd bought before we arrived. Everyone agreed the food was delicious & well presented, my lamb was cooked to perfection. We'd... More

I really wanted to like this place. It looks to be family run, and we were squeezed in for a late booking. Clearly this is a very popular cafe/restaurant. Can't really fault the staff generally, either. However, the atmosphere/lighting for an evening meal was all wrong. The waitress placed a tea light on the table, but there was no point:... More

We never visit Alnwick around lunch time without getting food at Lilburns. Excellent as always, and having tried most of the others in Alnwick, until we have been disappointed, this represents top class value, and even better food, if that is possible as the service and quality never seems to vary which is why we still go here. Mine host... More

Enjoyed the meal we had at Lilburns last night. I explained to the waitress that I was lactose intolerant, both her and the chef couldn't have been more helpful. For the first time in many months I finished off my main course with a desert, made especially. This was wonderful, many thanks to all.

In general quite a good meal. King prawns for starter very good whereas Craster drab cakes rather bland . Main courses of sea bass and duck nice and vegetables not over-cooked. Puds ok, wine chilled and well priced. Cafe like atmosphere upstairs in restaurant but staff helpful and service fine.

We had to find somewhere with outdoor seating to accommodate our dog. Usually this means settling for a sandwich or a pub meal, not so at Lilburn's! I never expected to eat food of such a high standard whilst sitting outside with my dog. I had a main course (duck) and a dessert (toffee lumpy bumpy) all of which were... More

Delightful evening. Restaurant was fully booked yet owner Debbie set a table in corner & we felt all the atmosphere of restaurant because of her welcome, services & gentle joking with us. Food was good, plentiful & arrived hot & quickly. Good wine list, decent prices. Highly recommended & considering returning again this holiday!

Beautifully prepared food, with attentive and helpful staff. Despite it being a very busy Saturday night, the food arrived promptly.Despite the enormous portions we still managed pudding! It was a lovely experience, and not over expensive for such qhality food.
