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.

Been to Grannies a couple of times now and can certainly recommend a visit. Quaint surroundings, pleasant staff, good food (and plenty of it) at very reasonable prices.

The building in which Grannies tearoom is housed is built from foundations that go back at least 500 years and probably more. Having said that it is pleasant and clean inside with loads of interesting curios around. The tea and cakes are yummy too..

A trip to Alnwick for us is never complete without a visit to Grannies. This time it was a Monday afternoon and there were no tables available, but we were told to come back in 20 minutes, which we did and got a table, but we saw loads of people turned away, so you really need to book this place for lunch. My friend had the chicken wrap with strawberry milkshake, I had prawn and avacado sandwiches with raspberry milkshake and my husband had the club sandwich with Fentimans orange jigger. Absolutely amazing, huge portions, great value and lovely service. We shall return, but we took a card so we can book it next time.

We had our first visit here today although living in Alnwick we pass it all the time and we were very pleasantly surprised. I had the salami and ham selection and expected a small amount of meat there was loads infact more than tge £6.80 I paid if I had to buy the meats separatly. We were served by a young girl who was just fantastic so polite and was running every where trying to get everyone served.

Not the best ambience in this downstairs café, as there is no natural light and the tables are close together. However, my prawn cocktail was huge and came with a decent salad and portion of bread - felt more like a meal than a snack. My husband's sandwich was also substantial and tasty. Great value for money
