Alnwick Gardens are lovely and so happily brought my parents for the afternoon. We started with lunch in the cafe. My first interaction with a member of staff had me spoken to like a 4 year old. The next member of staff was unhelpful and...More

What a difference a great cafe/restaraunt would make. 9" pizza £9.50 and cold chips not a great lunch. Total lack of variety and good food, so disappointing at such a great tourist attraction.

We had lunch here. Very overpriced and absolutely awful food. The kids lunch box was a disgrace. I abandoned my tuna bap halfway through. Do not recommend eating here. Go into Alnwick instead
