Arrived at lunchtime but it was so busy there were no seats available, however someone left and we were seated almost immediately. Staff are very efficient, tables are cleared and washed down as soon as you leave and service is quick. It's a bright, light and airy eatery with a really nice friendly atmosphere. Lunch consisted of fish and chips,... More

Tucked away in an alley this is a plain and simple but pleasant restaurant with very good service and well-above-average food. King prawns each on a mini muffin with chilli and garlic butter were luscious. Mushroom and asparagus risotto with parmesan richly cheesy and intense. The cost extremely reasonable. Recommended.

We visited Lilburn's based on the reviews, and were pleasantly surprised. The starters (especially the brie and mango parcels) and main courses (we had the duck and chicken) were so tasty, with really excellent sauces. We found out that the chef had worked for the Duke of Northumberland in both Alnwick Castle and Syon House, and has served royalty! Nice... More

Lilburn's was simply excellent - from the first impressions greeting to the very end. The food was top notch, the service very good - happy and attentive without being obtrusive. The ladies distributing the food were very fit, up and down the stairs constantly - it was a good pastime trying to work out how far they climbed in a... More

Lilburns was recommended to us by a friend who lives in Alnwick and we were not disappointed. It's often difficult to please a group of ten people but we were all amazed at the quality of the food which was beautifully presented. The staff were really friendly and could not have been more helpful. We had a great night and... More
