Love a trip to Grannies when we're in the area. Lots of choice on the menu, seating comfortable and there's lots of items to buy too! We bought a few bits to put with Christmas presents and they were well received.

I love everything about this place. It's been around for years and I'm yet to find a fault with it. Great shop upstairs for tasty treats and downstairs is the most beautiful, cosy cafe. All decorated with old fashioned (Victorian period) stuff; recipe books and an even an iron hanging dryer with old bloomers on! Food is fantastic. All fresh... More

We happened upon this home style deli and teashop on a cold December morning in Alnwick. Two toasted sandwiches and a pot of hot tea. We sat upstairs in the window so we could watch the world go by. Thank you Grannies Teashop! Happy Christmas.

Great club sandwich, filter coffee and a large portion of carrot cake. What more do you want for £15 for two.

Popped in for lunch yesterday based on other reviews and was so pleased we did. The staff were really friendly and the place was so cosy like going back in time to Grannies house.

Oldy worldly tea room serving excellent food, thoroughly enjoyed our Smoked Salmon and Prawn Stack followed by Cream Tea Service was incredibly slow but the place was extremely busy as it was half term. Tried to catch the waitress's eye a number of times to order and then to order dessert but they did not seem to respond

club sandwich amazing, toasted sandwich tasty, jacket potato with corned beef amazing too Really cozy and snug - dogs welcome which really surprised us but was great as we didn't need to leave him in the car. We booked so would recommend this as there was 6 of us. Very friendly and lots of variety on the menu

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.
