“Not bad overall”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Daughter and I had a meal here whilst staying at the hotel. Quite a varied menu with reasonable prices. My pasta dish was delicious but my daughter wasn't overly happy with her Caesar salad. To be fair, we mentioned it and they rectified the situation. You can have a less than perfect meal anywhere, but it is the response that counts. Thank you.

We got such a shock when we read your review after the title. Did you tell anyone about the issues you flag here? I do hope so, then we would have been able to respond and try to fix things for you. We get so many rave reviews for our food, as TA shows. We hope you will return and enjoy a meal with us to your liking.

“PLEASURABLE DINING AT INN”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Hogs Head Inn, named after the Inn in Harry Potters books, is only 2 years old, built in keeping with historical architecture in Alnwick, and inside is pleasing to the eye with modern décor. The service was excellent and staff were very friendly. We all had fish and chips! Food is great, plentiful and yummy. The lunch costs are from 7 pounds upwards. Definitely worth a visit.

“Fantastic Sunday Lunch!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

This is a quite new venue and the decor etc is very warm & welcoming. On arrival we asked the bar staff for a table for 4 and the staff member was very friendly and accomodating.
You have to order your food at the bar which wasn't a problem, the bar staff where very friendly too. We ordered the Sunday Roast and me being a pig i went for the platter which was huge!!
It was a la carte and you could have Chicken, Lamb or Beef or all three, Veg was plentiful and the gravy was amazing. Great service, great food and great venue. Marvellous!
