Description: The Treehouse is one of the most magical and unique restaurants to be found anywhere in the world. It’s high up in the treetops, with a roaring log fire in the centre of the room and trees growing through the floor. Most importantly, the locally-inspired food is delicious. Always featuring local fish and seafood, meats from Northumberland’s farmlands and other regional specialities, the Treehouse Restaurant menus highlight local quality, taste and change throughout the seasons. There’s a great wine list, a good range of beers and regular live music. For a family dining experience that you’ll all enjoy, a great night out with friends or a romantic dinner for two, there’s nowhere quite like it. We always recommend booking ahead for lunch or dinner.

“A great recommendation we followed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

We moved to the South England over 27 years ago! After watching a T.V. documentary on the Duchess's project to trans form the garden I have longed to go back and see it.My sister-in-law said it was amazing the this restaurant would just top the experience if we could get a table.
We visited and indeed it was an amazing place. We were fortunte to get a table at the Treehouse restaurant and it did make afabulous lunch stop! Lovely concept with atmosphere. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The food was delicious! So pleased to have been able to make this visit. Due to the weather, the garden was not in its full glory. So really hope to revisit in a few months so see it in all it's glory! Duchess Jane has done wonders!

“Fantastic experience and excellent food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We came here on a recommendation as we were visiting Alnwick with the family ( three generations). It was even better than we had been expecting. The setting is unique - a great experience before you even sit down! The food was superb with a good choice on all courses, and the young staff were well trained and always very friendly and attentive. It was one of the highlights of our holiday in Northumberland for all members of our party.

“Perfect in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Must book because so busy! But if you book your seated straight away. Lovely atmosphere, fore crackling away, lights glistening among the inside branches. Food is amazing. I ha the char grilled chicken with mushroom risoto and hand cut chunky chips which are a must have! All dishes that were served to our party looked so neat, greatly presented. The tomato and red pepper soup of the day was one of the best soups i've ever had! Service was quick and the staff were pleasent and chatty, slightly pricey but if you want good food, you pay for it! Defo recomend. Brilliant!

“Lovely for a special occasion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

We've eaten at the Treehouse a fair few times now and its up there in our top 10 places to eat as we know we'll be guaranteed great food! The setting of the whole place is excellent and the imposing fire that greets you on entry is guaranteed to make the atmosphere cosy for the rest of your evening as do all the lovely twinkle lights everywhere.
The menu doesn't seem to change often but the options that are available will suit many different appetites and tastes. It has never disappointed us however we would love to see some different puddings on offer, a traditional chocolate cake will never disappoint anyone!
The staff are friendly and quite attentive, sometimes they have looked a little bit too tarted up with make up (which they don't need as they're all very pretty) with their hair tied up in funny styles which doesn't seem to be in keeping with the sophistication of the restaurant.
Booking is a must with the Treehouse especially around Christmas as we've had to change our plans at times due to not getting the evening we first wanted but that wasn't a problem.
All in all a magical place to eat, food is always lovely and we would definately recommend it!

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Great place, great food, great staff and overall an excellent experience. We went for lunch with our twins. The menu was excellent with a great kids menu and great mix for meat eaters and vegetarians. The whole experience of Alnwick Castle is excellent and this really tops it off. My wife and I wanted to come back the two of us for an evening, but no babysitters....boooo! Only advice is book a table. Go, you'll love it!
