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.

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

I visited with my husband and parents for afternoon tea. I was hoping that we'd be seated in the Olympic room but we were in a bar area. It was pleasant and quiet and we were able to look in the dining room before leaving. The service was excellent, our waitress was attentive and polite and I couldn't fault her... More

Nothing was too much trouble. Kind and attentive service, and helpful adaptations for dietary requirements.

The white swan has a room which is a replica of the state room of the sister ship of the titanic. The Bondgate restaurant has nice service and a nice coffee.

Having left my husband behind at our holiday cottage to look after our three dogs, I went off on my own to Alnwick on my own for shopping and lunch and decided to have lunch in the Bistro at the Ship Hotel.. I enjoyed salmon served with a velute sauce, french beans and chipped potatoes followed by chocolate bavoise at... More

My wife and I decided to try this restaurant after a friend of ours very kindly bought us a Virgin Experience Day to the value of £99.00. We chose this restaurant instead of afternoon tea at the Ritz - mistake. The voucher entitled us to a three course dinner each and a bottle of house wine, going on rough figures... More

Had a lovely meal on Monday at the White Swan Bistro. Steak night was very reasonably priced, food was great and staff Louise and Julie were very polite and attentive even though the resturant was quite busy. Will go again
