We were staying at Hogs Head Inn, which is about a mile walk into centre of Alnwick. We arrived at 6.30pm and managed to get a table straight away, this is a busy restaurant and they don't take bookings so the earlier you arrive the less wait you'll have. We ordered drinks, very reasonably priced, we then looked through a... More

First off, don't let the name put you off... this is so much more than a cafe. They don't take bookings, but on a busy Saturday evening we were told approx half an hour so we nipped to the pub next door for a drink while we waited & one of the staff came into the pub to let us... More

We used to visit regularly and now we live locally we tonight made our first visit in maybe 18 months. I'm so glad to say it hasn't changed in food quality so we were not disappointed. Hubby chose a tomato free pizza with home made chips (were always a favourite!) and I went for a main of deep fried prawn... More

2nd visit for us. We enjoyed it so much we made a bee line for it on our return to Alnwick and we weren't disappointed. First through the door just just before 12. They were happy to seat us even though we were early. It's 12noon for food although open from 9. Calzone and Bruschetta ai funghi for two. Absolutely... More

A friend and I came to eat here last night, we have been many times before but haven't visited for at least a year. It was very busy when we arrived which was fine. I approached the girl behind the bar who looked up and said, "would you like to wait". I found this a bit of an odd thing... More

Used to be a regular haunt, but hadn't been for a few months. Not much changed, still superb food, very good service and real value for money. Pizzas & Pastas just can't be beaten. Been going on and off for 4 years or so now and it always hits the spot.

Caffe Tirreno does not take bookings, so it is first come, first served. They will, however, take your phone number and ring you when a table become available, as happened with our party of 4. There was a great atmosphere, service was very attentive and the food divine! All food is freshly prepared and cooked to perfection. We had two... More

This is a small restaurant with probably less than 20 tables, and they don't take bookings. Don't worry, though - the waitress will tell you to pop to the pub next door and they will fetch you when your table is ready. It is very busy and we were told we would have to wait an hour, but we had... More

Ate at Cafe Tirreno twice whilst staying in Alnwick recently. It is a small place but it has a good atmosphere and the food is great and reasonably priced. The staff are really friendly and welcoming and work really hard. Great place to eat
