The Granby Inn
This cosy country inn is one for the foodies, offering gorgeous British dishes presented beautifully with contemporary flair. Though the venue is around 250 years old, it has retained much of its original character and rustic charm, including old oak beams. The Granby Inn is steeped in even more history as for the last 50 years, the same family has owned and run this establishment. Customers old and new are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome.
Head chef Michael Hall, who was voted the NECTA North East Chef of the Year for 2016, creates wonderful seasonal menus that change regularly. Elegant starters such as pan-fried pigeon breast, wild mushroom and tarragon fricassee, smoked haddock and potato crumble and deep-fried goat’s cheese with red onion are perfectly presented and will awaken your tastebuds in preparation for the main course. Mains like the grilled Northumbrian lamb chops, pea purée and pearl barley, and the slow-cooked Cumbrian pork belly with cauliflower purée are bold, beautiful and bursting with flavour.
Make sure you save enough room for dessert. With sticky toffee pudding and butterscotch sauce, dark chocolate torte with fresh raspberries and raspberry sorbet, and strawberry and white chocolate crumble topped with vanilla ice cream making an appearance on the menu, it’s simply too hard to resist the full three-course experience here.
The Granby Inn also has weekly steak, curry, and tapas nights, so you’ll always find the perfect menu to match your foodie cravings. With a great selection of wine, real ale, lager and all your favourite soft drinks, The Granby Inn is also a great place to visit for a tipple.
Why not extend your visit and stay overnight in one of The Granby Inn’s five en-suite guest bedrooms? Just a short drive from Alnwick Castle, a popular tourist attraction and film location, the inn is perfectly located for visitors wishing to explore the wider region. Showcasing a consistently excellent food offering, a friendly atmosphere and attractive prices, an unforgettable dining experience awaits at The Granby Inn.
