My husband and I had visited Alnwick today and were looking for somewhere to have lunch. We noticed the sign offering Winter Warmer menu , which included ham and leek broth with roll and butter and " the best steak pie in the world" for £ 8.99. My husband, being a fan of pies suggested we tried it. My goodness, what a meal. The ham broth was a meal in itself. Huge chunks of ham in a lovely thick broth. The best broth we have ever had and we would have quite happily paid £8.00 for that itself. We were worried we wouldn't be able to do justice to the main course when it arrived. Well, the steak pie really is the best. The chunks of steak were like mini joints of beef, and so much of it. The chips were gorgeous, home cut and crispy. The fresh carrots, peas and swede mash were so fresh and tasty. To top it all off to perfection was the delicious gravy. All in all superb. It was a shame to leave some of the chips, but we were stuffed to the gills. One of the best and best priced meals we have ever had. Also the young girls waiting on were so professional and attentive, a credit to the hotel. Can't wait to come back again to sample the garlic prawns the next table were enjoying. Thank you for a brilliant meal we will always remember.
