We were looking for something on Easter Sunday and found this place by chance. So glad we did. Quirky basement cafe with excellent food and great cake. Prices are very competitive and staff are superb. Will definitely be back next time we are in Alnwick

Stopped at Alnwick for a quick lunch and came across Grannies. Its just a little room, down in a basement, so not easy for anyone with mobility problems. I had delicious home made soup and husband had a large freshly made and beautifully presented chicken...More

Grannies has a dog friendly table, but you must negotiate steep stairway to get down there. Lovely home baking. Decaffienated drinks available. Light bites and home cooked meals available. Ring ahead to reserve dog friendly table as they just keep one allocated. Will seek them...More

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.
