Service always good. Also a good range of beers and cocktails. Prices can be high, but these are generally for the higher strength ales.
The staff are doing a great job, considering limited space and the alternating weather.
A good spot on the Alnwick Market Square to people watch and sample a nice draught ale.

Good selection of drinks. Only 3 platters available food wise at the minute, we didn't eat, but looked nice. Can't wait for the weather to improve so we can enjoy it more

Arrived as it started raining. Sat outside on wet chairs and at wet table which the waitress came promptly to dry! Covid rules. Outside. Crackers.
Didn’t bother eating but there was little choice in any case - 2 platters veggie and cheese. Sure it would have been lovely but not under those conditions.

great asset to the town but looking forward to more food options when the inside dining opens. found the boards with the food a bit messy and would have preferred plates but perhaps this is just a matter of choice.

Good pub with a good atmosphere, good staff for the most part and although we didn’t dine the food looked lovely and I will be back to have food. Slightly overpriced however it is town centre so to be expected.

Felt very safe with good Covid19 security measures in place. Nice atmosphere in the busy market place. Beer was very good, Rigg and Furrow keg and Worky Ticket on draught. Food was excellent, we had a cheese board with chutney and oat biscuits and a cheese/charcuterie to share. Beautiful flavours all round.

Great little pub in the market place. We were lucky as it was a lovely sunny day. Great service. Food selection was very limited but good quality. Quite expensive but drinks were great.

Lovely place to sit in the sun after work. The cocktails were well made and reasonably priced and the cheese board was lovely.

Lovely atmosphere, Jake made a non-alcoholic cocktail for me which was not on the menu. Great antipasti platter with a varied selection of cheese, meat, pickles veg and sauces. Will definitely be back!
