Regardless of your budget or taste, you’ll dine out well in Northumberland’s many restaurants where local food and drink takes centre stage.

From magical treetop eateries, like Alnwick’s Treehouse Restaurant, reached by wobbly rope bridges, to elegant fine dining in stately country houses like Close House, there are sensational restaurants to dine out in across the county.

Raise a toast to each other in a candle-lit castle, or relax in the laid-back dining room of a countryside hotel while the children play outside. 

Dine in restaurants whose speciality is sympathetically cooked local food or where culinary boundaries are pushed with trailblazing creations.
