Food is to die for. Very busy place!

We visited on a Sunday evening about 6pm expecting it to not even be open yet but it was packed. From the outside we weren't sure we had the right place. It looked like someone's front room, which is all part of the quirky style, but could do with a member of staff being down there or a separate... read more

my partner and I enjoyed a lovely meal here. Food is American themed. We ordered a sharing starter of swine fries. Very well presented and full of flavour. For mains rack of ribs and the 3 meat platter which consisted of pulled pork, pulled brisket, the hugest chicken wings I have ever seen, fries slaw and onion rings . We... More

Came to the art house for a meal with a few friends. Food was great, chips have lots of flavour. However, the service was very poor. When we had finished our mains we sat and waited over 20 minutes for our table to be cleared, many members of staff walked past us and ignored the plates. Finally when someone came... More

We had to write this review as it deserves noting. On a Sunday at 3.30pm and looking for something to eat and most eateries doing lunch 12-3pm, we were going to have to be lucky,this we were to stumble across The Art House in Alnwick. If the only criticism it would be that the place looked closed but glad we... More

I went here for a night out with friends and was very impressed with the food, the portions were large and the presentation was quirky. The seating is comfortable and the staff friendly, worth a visit

We had lunch here on Good Friday, it's somewherw I've been wanting to try for a while. It was lovely, I really liked how the place was decorated, there was loads to choose from on the menu and all the staff were friendly. I had the pulled pork sub and my partner had the chicken & cheese panini, they both... More

A great meal out with the family in this quirky restaurant. The meal portions are huge and the combos, the burgers, and the kids meal (particularly the kebab) are highly recommended, events though my ribs were slightly cindered. A really enjoyable lunch experience.

On our visit we were seated promptly. The young girl serving was very attentive and polite. We both had a classic burger which was fantastic, if a little spicy for me. My oh loved it. Have the onion rings as a side they won't disappoint. All in all a great visit we would make again.

On a cold night early in April having walked around sleepy Alnwick for a while we'd given up much hope of finding anywhere different with a bit of life and then we got lucky! The Art House has a slightly odd arrangement in that downstairs as you walk in off the street it's a tiny almost living room like space... More

We visited based on a recommendation and weren't disappointed. Refreshing modern & quirky, family friendly, extensive menu and great value. Definitely go hungry as portions are huge - a main will suffice and stuff! Perhaps a little understaffed on our visited, but they coped well. Will visit again for sure.
