OK but variable

We were staying at the hotel (excellent - see separate review) and used the restaurant twice for dinner and once for lunch. Sunday roast was very good indeed. Pheasant, on another occasion, was bland but ok. Fish and chips a disaster - don't think I've ever seen so much almost-burnt batter and skin... read more

light lunch needed after heavy shopping foray. We'd been before but eh layout has changed. Ther service was cheerful and nice range of beers. Food not terribly exciting and about average price for a hotel. Lovely place, but much better value to be had elsewhere in Alnwick I felt. Barter Books has a cracking buffet cafe at the old station

We were in Alnwick on a Bank Holiday weekend so we booked to eat here on the Monday given that there was likely to be some restriction on the number of places open. It turned out that Monday is steak night and is, even on a Bank Holiday, surprisingly busy. The food perfectly acceptable, just not outstanding. Whilst this was... More

On a rainy day, my husband and I took shelt.er in the White Swan and were pleased to find a pleasant menu in the small restaurant. The meal was enjoyable & the service good.. We would go there again

Visited here for Sunday lunch on the way home from a weekend away. We parked around the back and saw some of the staff having a fag (nice) but continued in anyway. It was extremely quiet in the restaurant and we sat down with our twins in their car seats. It was friendly and the food was nice. It remained... More

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.
