Diane & I visited for lunch having reserved a "sharing platter for 2 plus wine" via a voucher bought for us at Xmas. We drove up to Alnwick and parked for free (a good start!) near the impressive looking White Swan Hotel - home to Hardy's - and set off for a look around.......it was all downhill from there. Uninspiring... More

Despite empty tables on arrival we were told it would be a ten - fifteen minute wait before we could get a table. Two other parties of two people were also waiting. One left. There seemed to be no organisation at all, or care from the staff. During our wait no drinks or menus were offered. We got our table... More

We booked a table and it was a good job we did as all the tables were used whilst we were there. The starters were beautifully presented and very tasty. Two of us had the shoulder of lamb for mains - it did seem a little strange - liked pulled pork but lamb and then moulded and compressed served on... More

Thought that we would try Hardys. Food ok, not outstanding but pleasant enough. But the service was glacial. Although they were not particularly busy the waiters seemed to drift around at what you might call a gentle hotel speed. In the end we went to the bar to pay our bill as the whole process of catching their attention was... More

Bland, bland, bland. We popped in to have a look at the spectacular dining room and the £10.00 lunch seemed like a good idea. Unfortunately a superannuated baked hake and even more characterless passionfruit cheesecake proved otherwise.

This is the 3rd time we have been and each time the service and food have been excellent We were told each time we would probably have to wait a while as the staff serve in the restaurant of the Hotel, too Would recommend and would visit again

We were taken to Hardys Bistro by friends so I didn't want to complain in front of them, but I had an absolutely awful meal. I ordered the caramelised onion tartin with goats cheese for a main course.... it was the size of a starter so I my friends ended up donating me potato and veg - and the dish... More
