My wife and I had dinner here and were so impressed we booked again for the following evening. A family run restaurant with very friendly and efficient staff. The food was excellent with good quality ingredients and it was nice to have a meal that didn’t come with chips for a change. The rack of lamb was superb (my wife had it twice!) as was the duck breast and the chicken with langoustine. Also the accompanying vegetables were cooked al dente which was just the way we like them. The a la carte menu is not cheap (although good value) but there are also less expensive meals on offer on the standard menu.
The service was very good indeed and we did not have to wait long between courses.

It’s clearly a popular place and booking in advance appears to be essential.

The place is on two levels, so if you pre book and this is highly recommended at present, specify if you need to be on the ground floor if you have and mobility difficulties. Having said all that the menu offers a good choice to suit all tastes and there are many returning guests which says it all. The staff are very attentive and the place has a nice vibe.

We an evening meal in the downstairs part of the bistro over the bank holiday weekend. The meal was ok but nothing startling, my partners steak was sent back as as it came undercooked to her orders no problem but then came back overcooked!
I had the fishcakes and the bass which were ok but nothing more.
Downstairs wise its more daytime cafe than bistro I can't comment on the upstairs.
For a couple of starters mains and a bottle of wine it came to £80 so definitely not cheap, we had a couple of meals in the Alnwick area over the weekend and they were of a much higher standard for a similar price, not sure if we just caught them on a very busy weekend reading other reviews but we came away very underwhelmed.

We called in the day we arrived in Alnwick to make sure we could get a booking for later in the week and were welcomed in, even though they were obviously about to leave.
The place was busy but bookings timed so each order could be processed before the next came along.
The food was lovely and we were spoilt for choice. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly.
