Description: 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.

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 meals and snacks. Prices were very reasonable too. Well worth a visit.

A real gem of a place , small coffee shop under a delicatessen. Food amazing - baguettes filled with LOTS of tasty delicious fresh fillings such as chicken , Brie and chilli rum chutney. Delicious cakes.Coffee lovely too. All staff are so friendly and helpful - definitely recommend a visit

From the outside you would think this is just another little tearoom, wrong!. Go down stairs and you will find a great tearoom with a unique setting.
The menu is good and there are always specials available.
Excellent food ( Northen portions) and a friendly service.
A hidden delight not to be missed and always worth a revisit.

Are in Alnwick, looking for a nice place for a coffee/tea and something to eat. Then this is a place to visit. The downstairs coffee shop is cosy with friendly service, and the updates shop had nice choice of not on the high street food stuffs. Had a nice old time feel of what a shop was like a 100 years ago.

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.
