Having spent the day out walking & eating fish & chips we didn't want a heavy meal. Luckily we came across the art house. Great menu with everything from snacks to tapas to full blown meals. Food quality really good at a reasonable price, quirky atmosphere and busy even on a Tuesday night. Give it a try even if you... More

Went here for an evening meal today with family. Very pleased we booked as saw quite a few people turned away who had not done so. The restaurant is decor acted in a mix of styles and is very comfortable, there is also an interesting small lounge area on the ground floor. We were served by friendly and attentive staff.... More

We Enjoyed Sea Bass and chicken here followed by chocolate pudding for hubby and ginger for me. Very well cooked and decent portions. Pudding was gooey and indulgent.

Excellent food and the chef obviously knows about food and what he is doing. Young enthusiastic staff serving. Interesting building and yes slightly quirky. Middle room not the best to sit in. We ate there twice on a three night visit to Alnwick and would thoroughly recommend. Wine list also very good.

We ate out on Sunday night and thoroughly enjoyed the Nacho starter, then one of us enjoyed the BBQ ribs (heavenly) and one the halloumi and asparagus salad (gorgeous). Good prices, very friendly staff.

This is a really interesting building with various rooms dedicated to different function. For example, the ground floor seems to be for cocktails while upstairs is reserved for meals. The menu is a bit heavy on the burger side but there are good salads too. It's great to find a place that isn;t a chain, and is flexible about what... More

Lovely meal in a quirky setting. They tried to over charge for drinks and then joked that we probably expected 'London prices'!! A genuine mistake??

We have just returned from a trip to Alnwick and this restaurant was recommended to us by our taxi driver. It was fabulous food, I had the belly pork which was amazing! Best I have ever had. My boyfriend had the bacon cheeseburger, also amazing. Lovely style of restaurant in a good location in the centre of the town. Highly... More

Being a local I personally believe this is one of, if not the best place to eat out in Alnwick. There is a variety of food on the menu, a large wine list and an array of homemade cocktails to choose from. The only thing I would say is maybe a few more options for the “veggie” diner. The standard... More
