The food was pretty good, the setting was pleasant for valentines weekend. Was let down by the staff who completely forgot about us, left to our own devices until marking them aware after a long absence.

Decided to try something to eat whilst at this amazing castle. The staff were excellent and were very polite. Plenty of seating for us at the time. Just had an afternoon snack of tea, juice and a few cakes. They were very good though.

We tried this when we visited Alnwick castle last year. The food was okay, slightly pricey as you would expect. The place seemed slightly disorganised but it could be just that this was a very busy day.

We visited The Sanctuary for the first time in October of this year which is strange considering we live in Alnwick. The venue seem to only offer a set menu dining experience once every month or so but I would seriously recommend a visit to...More
