Grannies has a dog friendly table, but you must negotiate steep stairway to get down there. Lovely home baking. Decaffienated drinks available. Light bites and home cooked meals available. Ring ahead to reserve dog friendly table as they just keep one allocated. Will seek them...More

We have been visiting Grannies for about 13 years since we first started holidaying in Northumberland, travelling from Hexham to do so. We still go now we live here and although in that time there have been changes it is still very good indeed.

During our recent visit to Alnwick we came across this unique little tearoom . We headed downstairs to a room where you felt you'd took a step back in time. We chose coffee and home-made cake which was delicious. The menu was quite extensive for...More

Good food, great service, and a warm welcoming atmosphere. There is a shop with some hard to find food items. We had a breakfast with great coffee, and went back for a lunch snack the next day and the service was just as good.

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.
