Over-priced. We stayed another night in a different pub just outside Alnwick for half the price, with breakfast included, and it was much better. You’re paying for the location, but for the sake of driving ten minutes out of town it isn’t worth it. The room was big, but the bathroom was very dated, and the bar area etc felt quite tacky. Also the staff weren’t particularly friendly or engaged - there was definitely a ‘doing the bare minimum’ attitude. When we checked in the girl asked if we were eating that evening, and when we said we weren’t sure, she assured us that they would keep a table for us. What she didn’t mention is that everything in Alnwick is closed on a Monday. When we arrived back at the hotel at 10 past 8, having failed to find any food, we were told that the kitchen had stopped serving food. No apologies or attempts to come up with a solution. So we ended up having takeaway chips on a bench outside. When we checked out the manager apologised and offered us a discount. But don’t think we’ll be staying there again!
