We had an dinner there whilst in Alnwick, and have to say the standard of food preparation and presentation was exceptional. More than a match for any restaurant in any big city or even the capital itself! Starters included a Mash, Black Pudding and Cumberland Sausage topped with an Onion Ring (although it does look like a lightly battered quail... More

I really want to write a good review as Alnwick is short on small businesses and a large chain is right next to this place. However that is why I can't, the large chain provides fresh food, always available, free newspapers, good ambience, clean tables. I have visited lilburns several times lately and each time told the scones are yesterdays,... More

We went for a quiet night out as Lilburns is one of the best steak restaurants in the area and we were not disappointed. The steaks were juicy and cooked nicely and the service was first class. We were really made to feel at home.

We'd come to Alnwick for a wedding. Walking through the fine and stately town, we noticed Lilburns up an alley / entry. We were after a light afternoon snack knowing that we were eating later. The place is a mix of deli, wine bar and cafe. Several tables were reserved for late afternoon groups heading for wine or beer (which... More

Popped in for some tea on a Saturday night. We had our 8 month old with us so arrived early. There is a good selection of food and the food was tasty and reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and we would recommend

I don't normally like putting bad reviews but we do normally review everywhere we eat so thought it was only fair to do this one. Came here on recommendation and looking online etc it looked to fit what we fancied. I went for a lasagne with chips and garlic bread which was really lovely and home cooked. Hubby went for... More

We went along because we had read previous reviews but were disappointed. There is no ambience whatsoever in the evenings. We had to ask for our table to be wiped as it was dirty and sticky. It was not busy downstairs at all, the lights were on fully creating no atmosphere and the menu was so extensive that it was... More

was very disappointed with service at the door.....looked at the menu and opening times early evening so decided to come to eat here...Arrived at 8.45 pm only to be told by a rude young lad that chef stopped cooking as they closed at 10 pm...I think they couldn.t be bothered about taking another £50 plus on food and wine....
