Simple food done well. Nothing too complicated but generous portions. Friendly service and lively atmosphere. Bigger than it looks from the outside. I've chosen to go back more than once!

Me and my boyfriend walked in late Saturday afternoon and we were sat downstairs as the upstairs was fully booked. I was a bit unsure sitting downstairs and didn't think that it looked like much and it was very quiet downstairs.. My boyfriend ordered the pork belly special that was in a Pad Thai sauce, I ordered the lamb shank... More

Had a lovely evening meal, really relaxed atmosphere with friendly helpful staff who brought us some delicious food. Seemed to be quite busy but that added to the atmosphere. would imagine it is a very warm and cosy place in the winter.

The restaurant is up an alley near the centre of the town. It is attractively laid out and was busy when we went. We were warmly welcomed and the staff were extremely pleasant. We managed to have dinner of two courses for £70 with wine and the quality of the food was good. I especially enjoyed the lamb cutlets that... More

A very interesting menu. Service is good, food is well presented and delicious. It is not big so booking is recommended. In my opinion the best "restaurant" out of all we tried in Alnwick.

This lovely little restaurant in the center of Alnwick offers typical English dishes, sometimes reinterpreted with a touch of fantasy. The staff is very helpful and polite. Absolutely recommendable.

this place was recommended to us - can't understand why! Nor can I understand some of the reviews on here.. beginning to wonder if we were in the same place! It seems very popular (think a lot of the B&B's in the area must recommend it?) The lasagne we had to eat was the worst lasagne I have ever had... More

Glad to find this little restaurant tucked away in a corner of Alnwick town centre. Visited when the staff had lots of bookings to deal with but they were happy to accommodate us, explaining at the start that there would be a little wait - instead of just leaving us wondering 'how long?' When the food came it was superb,... More

We had a delicious evening meal in Lilburn's on Wednesday 10th August. The food was very colourful, tasty and cooked to perfection. The staff were friendly, patient and eager to please. Thank you for making our last night in Alnwick so memorable.
