Excellent service, Jacket potato, soup and sandwiches. Good value and a nicely stocked deli shop! We actually sat at the small window seat in the shop not the downstairs restaurant. Think we will visit again when we are in Alnwick

We popped into Grannies for the first time today and both enjoyed an egg and bacon roll with salad. Delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. We shall pop in again when we are in the area.

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.
