We stopped for a quick snack (very late lunch or early tea!) before heading out to the Simple Minds Concert. The paninis were excellent, with very tasty fillings. Excellent, friendly and great-humoured service. We will come back for a full meal during our next visit to Alnwick.

Good place for a reasonably priced lunch on a busy day visit to Alnwick. Fine for a quick snack and / or coffee as well. PS excellent cheese shop opposite!!

This is a really nice local restaurant, a refuge for those of us who prefer independents to chains. The menu is quite inventive, prices reasonable, and service very good indeed. This is a fine place ot eat in Alnwick.

The whole dining experience couldn't be faulted. Friendly efficient service and beautiful food in a characteristic setting. Even though the restaurant was busy the staff were professional and extremely friendly with all customers. Will definitely eat here again and again.

We have been to Lilburns before during the day and found the food very good, tonight we were going to the tapas restaurant in Alnwick only to find it is now closed. We went to Lilburns and ordered steaks which arrived in good time. Unfortunately the steaks were unseasoned and pretty bland, the peppercorn sauce seemed to be lacking peppercorns,... More

We arrived at 12.07 on a hot Saturday, sat at a table and ordered two panini for ourselves, and ham sandwiches for the child. Sandwich arrived much earlier than the panini but without the promised chips. Eventually we had all the food. About 30 minutes after we arrived, and in the middle of eating, the waitress slapped a "Reserved" sign... More

WE arrived late in Alnwick and were warned it would be difficult to get into the better eateries in the town as they all get booked up - so we discovered! Lilburn's, however, found us a table and we had a decent meal with a nice bottle of wine. What made the place stand out was the friendliness of the... More

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
