My boyfriend and I came for Sunday lunch, serious value for money. Starters were huge and delish, came out on fun wooden boards. We both had lamb roast which came with all the things you want and need on a Sunday! We both had food left on our plates but not because we disliked it, just full to the brim!... More

This place looks nothing much from the outside but is absolutely first class inside. Staff are friendly food is amazing great value for money and the portion sizes are excellent. Drinks menu is vast and the way they present them is A+ that's food as well as drinks would definitely be back

Great range of gourmet burgers in a lively restaurant. Very busy when we dined but the service was speedy and friendly. The burgers are huge so I'd suggest going when you're feeling very hungry. The Texan Bad Boy, burger with pulled pork and jalapenos is delicious.

In Alnwick, looking for somewhere to lunch, happened across the Art House Café. Decided on the soup'n'sarnie offer at £5.75. Had the most delicious rich, hearty and very tasty leek and potato soup (not one of those watery offerings with a couple of spuds floating in it). Accompanied by a generous ham and pease pudding sarnie for me and a... More

Arrived in Alnwick at 6pm on the 26/9. Had a wee wonder round this lovely wee town and then decided we'd rather eat out than buy carry out or cook in our rental cottage. There seemed to be plenty of places to eat but after discounting pub grub and being astounded at how busy the Chinese was we were begining... More

Cocktails were lovely, most of the staff were friendly, one girl was a bit rude and grumpy and was seen on her phone a number of times. Lacks a manager's presence. Food was very nice, huge portions! Had to ask for wine twice and water never came. Could have put heating on, was freezing all night! Also needs a glass... More

My husband and I regularly visit Alnwick, the art house had been a restaurant that we hadn't really noticed, until recently, and wow are we sorry we hadn't been here before! We booked ahead and were promptly sat on arrival. My husband opted for the black pudding scotch egg, he thoroughly enjoyed it, I opted for the lighter asparagus and... More

Looking for a good restaurant in alnwick led us to this place. Ignored on arrival we were eventually told to take a seat. Drinks came warm with no slice in the coke. The food took 45 min to arrive, not as ordered. I have never been so near to walking out of a restaurant. Pretentious un caring and arrogant. To... More
