Very good food but

Sunday lunch was very good, the choice and quality of the vegetables was excellent, the beef was a little tough and the gravy was tasty but too thin and watery, overall a good experience but a bit disappointed it was not in the fabulous dinning room.

Six of us enjoyed an excellent meal at this restaurant. It had a great atmosphere with pleasant staff and lovely surroundings. Highly recommend this on a visit to Alnwick, very central. We all had the 'steak deal' which included two steaks and a bottle of house wine - excellent value. Would certainly return.

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
