“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

We dined at the Tower Restaurant and were pleasantly surprised at the number of choices on the menu. The food quality was excellent as was the service. The prices were reasonable. We only managed to dine there once because on the other occasions we tried they were full we would recommend this restaurant

“Highly recommended”

We visited Alnwick recently and ate at the Tower restaurant twice. The food was excellent, with plenty of choice, very well presented and reasonably priced. Staff efficient and friendly.

“Anyone Can Have An Off Day”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

I've eaten at the Tower before and cannot remember anything particular about it. However, sadly on this occassion it was memorable for all of the wrong reasons. The restaurant has a comprehensive menu for both hot and cold meals, with a long selection of sandwiches/ accompaniments to chose from. We visited on Easter Monday for lunch and the visit turned into a mammoth session.

Having arrived and waited 25 minutes to order, it was clear that service was going to be slow, and may be we should have left. The kitchen was understaffed, with only one person working there and the serving staff unable to advise of the problem until after we had ordered.

As a consequence it took 45 minutes to receive drinks and the meal, a ham sandwich and mushroom stroganoff took over an hour. Its a shame, as the food was okay when it arrived, but a little bit of honesty to the customers/ may be change of staffing to get cold orders out sooner, may have prevented the customers having such a long wait or becoming so disatissfied.
