We ate here twice during a recent stay in Alnwick. First night we ate off the main menu, next night we had the carvery. Both were very good pub food. The carvery was really tasty and great value, also very popular, the place was busy for mid-week November. Good staff, friendly and efficient and food arrived quickly. Recommended.

This was my second visit to this little hotel restaurant and was just as good as the first time. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and the carvery is delightful. The food was so well cooked and the choice of veg was good for such a small counter area. Price was very reasonable. I will certainly go back there... More

Delicious food, high end for a pub, in lovely traditional pub atmosphere. Highly recommended, particularly if staying at Aln House opposite.

We visited the Oaks in Alnwick on Sunday 25/11/12. We had been out for the day and didnt realise the time and popped in hoping to get a meal at nearly 3pm. We were welcomed by the lovely staff and were treated to a very nice Sunday roast. I had the beef which was to die for, my wife had... More

We have just returned from a three night stay at the nearby Aln House B&B and ate at the Oakes Hotel every night. The menu is reasonably priced and varied enough for everyone to find something they like, I can particularly recommend the craster stew. Especially good value is the early bird menu and carvery at £10 for two courses.... More
