Description: Grannies Tea room and Delicatessen was established around 1984, then the tearoom only held a couple of tables placed within the shop. It was only later, in 1989, that the intimate downstairs tea room was developed within the basement where the old fashioned coal chutes, old style steps, fireplace and flagstone flooring can still be seen. Grannies is a strong advocate for the local food movement in Alnwick, and offers a wide range of local produce within the deli, shop and tea room.

Love food. The portions are generous, the food is fantastic and wholesome. If your looking for a delicatessen with great food and cake look no further! GRANNIES is brilliant!

We used Tripadvisor to help choose somewhere for lunch when passing through Alnwick and we weren't disappointed. It's a small tearoom underneath the bakery/deli, but certainly doesn't serve small portions. The pork pie ploughmans platter was massive and all very very tasty. All the produce appears to be locally made or sourced. The panini's seemed bigger than your average panini, and it was served with a full salad. And the tea was served in a proper teapot! Sadly neither of us had room for cake, which was a real shame as they looked delicious. Maybe next time!
Definitely recommend a visit.

If you're visiting Alnwick, I'd suggest Grannies Café is an absolute must. Tucked away, downstairs with gorgeous brickwork you'll find a quintessentially british tea room. Serving perfect tea with great snacks, this place is perfect for a mid morning stop off or grab some fantastic lunch for reasonable prices. Lilburns is my most visited cafeé in Alnwick, but Grannies is the best!

Could tell how popular this place was by the queue waiting for food to take away. My wife and I enjoyed soup and sandwiches which were delicious. Free extra coffee was appreciated.
