Went on a Monday night - hadn't booked, but named to fit us in despite being busy. Service good and food excellent, the only issue bring the size of the portions - just make sure you're hungry! Highly recommended.

Amazing food. One of our favourites! Only downfall is that it's not closer to home. Well worth the travel though! First time we visited, we both had starters and couldn't finish our means. Plenty food and good value for money. Can't wait to go back!

We almost missed this little gem of a place in Alnwick. We were looking for places to have dinner that evening, it was raining and cold and we had been unpleasantly surprised at some of the high prices of restaurants in the town. We looked in the window, scanned the menu and moved on without really registering, maybe because all... More

My partner and I decided to visit Alnwick for our second anniversary and looking at the menu and cocktail list decided to have our anniversary meal here. We booked a month in advance and were really looking forward to dining here but we couldn't have been more disappointed. We went upstairs and told the wait staff that we had a... 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 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 bar,... More
