Went for Sunday lunch a family of 8. 5 of us had Sunday lunch which costs almost a 10 each and at least 4 out of 5 were unhappy since most of the veg were cold. 2 of which went back to be warmed up in the microwave .... not what you will except from a 10 pound lunch. By... More

Many members of the family and friends stayed here for a wedding at the Alnwick Treehouse. The staff were very welcoming, flexible and accommodating. Rooms are large, modern, well appointed and very comfortable. Plenty of space to meet and eat together in the bar/restaurant. Easy access to the town and its attractions.

I have stayed here 3 times with and without family. The rooms are a generous size and the overall design is pleasing. The food is very acceptable pub fayre. I keep thinking of the word...practical... which is no bad thing. (One check-out occasion did involve a heavily laden motorcycle, heavy rain, and a hotel manager who'd picked up his bad-tempered...

We stopped here after an abortive attempt to eat lunch somewhere else. At first I wasn't keen as this looked like a typical chain restaurant. We were all pleasantly surprised by the warm ambience and the friendly staff. The menu was varied and the food well made and served. The service was happy and professional. All in all this was...

We stayed for 3 nights for our anniversary and had a very good deal for Dinner ,Bed and breakfast.Rooms are very nice and food is excellent although a bit expensive if your meals are not included in the tariff. The hotel was very quiet, so we wondered why all the breakfast was laid out as if the hotel was full,... More

Nice selection at the bar and very spacious and well kept bar area. Room was spacious and comfortable and kept clean and tidy. Breakfast was spot on, can't go... More

We come here often, but sadly Sundays (especially mid afternoon) are turning into a time to avoid. 4 of 5 main meals took 45 minutes to arrive (not an issue - if you're warned) fifth meal took another 10 minutes. Pheasant undercooked :-(. Then had to ask the manager where our desserts were after another ridiculous wait in a now... More

My wife and I make another visit to the Hogs head for Sunday lunch. The Sunday lunch was good value for money with a choice of Beef, pork and turkey. We had a slice of each with a good selection of vegetables. The menu for puddings was limited but what we had was very nice with a good helping. The... More

Stayed here for two nights and were surprised how quiet the hotel was. The room was lovely and spacious and very clean.The bed was huge and very comfy. We ate in the restaurant both nights and were very happy with the food and service and the breakfasts were excellent with a great buffet style service. We would certainly stay again!
