Eating in a real castle where the food is good and locally soured and the history of England is surrounding you had a great impact on a fun meal.

6 hungry men working at the castle doing a early conference install. Lunch time approaches and we decides to have a go at the restaraunt. Served very quickly, but my pint of orange turned into a half. We waited for around 20 mins for the food, which all came out together, my bread was dry because it must have been... More

Having seen many advertisements for this restaurant we were looking forward to our visit there last weekend. The interior decoration though pleasant did not really make the most of the building's potential and the chair/table height was uncomfortable for both myself and my husband - we have 12" height difference between us and usually find chairs suit one or the...

We walked in off the street and the restaurant welcomed our large family party with welcome arms. The food was FANTASTIC! And I had no complaints about the service. They were also great about my 2 small kids that were with us. The decor was beautiful and it was a perfect ending to a long day.

Our party consisted of 5 adults (including one wheelchair user) and a child. After twice being misdirected by castle staff towards an entrance without wheelchair access (and hence parking in the...

This is the third time I've eaten at the Sanctuary, but on this occassion i couldn't believe how slow the service was - pleasant but slow. On a Friday evening in May there were only 3 tables being occupied by other couples - so 8 people to attend to and 4 waiting on staff with fancy pdas to place the... More

This is a fantastic restaurant with lovely decor and great service, the food we had was fabulous - every course. The waiter was attentive without being pushy. Could not fault this restaurant and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Been twice and love it. Pretty amazing location at Alnwick Castle. Fab food, mostly locally sourced, excellent service. Went on my birthday and got a special dessert with Happy Birthday on plus candle and waiting staff sang Happy Birthday (cheesy but sweet). Valentines Day Special included a rose, and champagne - only criticism was that the service was a little... More
