We went for lunch to celebrate a special occasion and weren't disappointed! I had the lemon sole special and my partner had the cod special. Both came with fresh tea and bread and butter. The fish was superb with crispy batter. Our server gave me two lemon sole and we both enjoyed a... read more

Had lunch here - waiter service, reasonable prices and absolutely fabulous food. Large portions - even the smaller ones! Highly recommended even if not the healthiest choice ;-) (But who cares when you're on holiday!) ☺

We sat in and had freshly cooked haddock and chips. The best fish and chips we have had for many years.

Impressive fish and chips in this very popular traditional sit down/take away café. Good choice of kids meals with a very good local ice cream for pudding. Excellent value and fast efficient service. Very clean toilets (important with small children). Parking available right outside.

We stopped here on our way home to scotland. Luckily we were too hungry to complain. The waitress was most inconvenienced at us wishing to sit in. We sat on the ground floor at the only clean free table. One particular table was left with used plates the whole time we were there. The poorly presented mountain of fried goods... More

Today, my wife and I visited Carlo's Fish & Chip restaurant in Alnwick. We had seen the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a go as we passed through Alnwick on our way to Lowick, we were not disappointed. The Fish & Chips were superb! The fish was top class and the batter was thin and crispy, just... More

On our long journey to Northumberland from Essex (which we usually do every two/three years, or so), we always stop in Alnwick. And yes, we have fish & chips here! So many places get it wrong (especiallly in Essex, with some exceptions), but we've always been very pleased with this place. Generous portions (but not excessive). Crispy batter on our... More

I was rather surprised yet pleased to see Haggis and Scotch pie on the menu. Both of which I eventually sampled during our stay.... Good quality chips too. Not too much you can say about a chip shop, but if you are in Alnwick and you want chips go here!
