Perhaps the food did not fully match the setting, but it was of an acceptable standard with efficient and cheerful service. Dining here is a unique experience which we hope to repeat!

Wow, what plusher surroundings can you expect than to dine in the Titanic's identical sister ship the Olympic's 1st class lounge, we had 2 breakfast and 2 evening meals, breakfast was just perfect, had egg Benedict with salmon, eggs were perfectly poached, evening meals were even more special, proper linen and table service, waiters were so friendly and attentive, really...

The meal was very tasty and well cooked. The service was good. The only thing was that The navarin of lamb came only with mash and no veg. Maybe you had to order them separately but nobody told us.

We were staying at the hotel (excellent - see separate review) and used the restaurant twice for dinner and once for lunch. Sunday roast was very good indeed. Pheasant, on another occasion, was bland but ok. Fish and chips a disaster - don't think I've ever seen so much almost-burnt batter and skin and so little fish. If you happen... More

light lunch needed after heavy shopping foray. We'd been before but eh layout has changed. Ther service was cheerful and nice range of beers. Food not terribly exciting and about average price for a hotel. Lovely place, but much better value to be had elsewhere in Alnwick I felt. Barter Books has a cracking buffet cafe at the old station

We were in Alnwick on a Bank Holiday weekend so we booked to eat here on the Monday given that there was likely to be some restriction on the number of places open. It turned out that Monday is steak night and is, even on a Bank Holiday, surprisingly busy. The food perfectly acceptable, just not outstanding. Whilst this was... More

Visited here for Sunday lunch on the way home from a weekend away. We parked around the back and saw some of the staff having a fag (nice) but continued in anyway. It was extremely quiet in the restaurant and we sat down with our twins in their car seats. It was friendly and the food was nice. It remained... More
