The food is good. We found nothing extraordinary to recommend to you. The service was good. We tried the lamb, the burger, and the fish. All good but nothing out of the ordinary.

We booked in for Sunday lunch while staying in Seahouses for a week. We couldn't find fault with anything, except maybe that we were too full to have pudding! The service was excellent and the waitresses were very attentive. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We were even offered a complimentary glass of champagne before our meal. Had sorbet... More

Two things: Firstly I do not recognise the name “The Bondgate Restaurant” and have only ever known it as ”The White Swan Hotel” restaurant. Secondly I fail to understand the most recent review of this “classy” establishment and the descriptions of the service and standard of staff. That said we had two very nice meals here during our brief sojourn... More

What a treat, I would definately eat here again. The sunday lunch experiance was fantastic. The service was superb, the food was amazing and the whole experience of eating in the First Class Lounge of the Titanics sister ship RMS Olympic was amazing.

Alnwick has a huge choice of places to eat, we chose The White Swan as they advertised a steak night deal on Monday's. We booked a table, a good choice as it was busy, even though it was early. The deal is two steak meals plus a bottle of wine for £29.95. You could be forgiven for thinking portion size/... More

Poor meal, hardly any vegetables, my salad starter was OK but the services was not very attentive. Decor comes from the Olympic, the Titanic sister ship.

My partner and I were in Alnwick for the day, although we are local we had never tried eating in the bistro. When we went in there was a nice atmosphere and we were greeted by a lovely girl named Louise who seated us. She offered us the menu and a wine list and explained the specials. After looking through... More

We have visited the White Swan three times. This visit was for lunch during a long day trip to Northumberland. We enjoyed a quiet lunch in the brasserie/bar. We had not booked, and midweek it was not busy. The food was good and well served by friendly staff. All was as we hoped/expected and we shall definitely be lunching here... More
