“A birthday treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013

I offered to take my wife to anywhere in Alnwick for a meal on her birthday yesterday; any posh restaurant she wanted. She chose a fish supper at Carlo's instead.
What more recommendation can an establishment have-and what more economical wife could any man have!

“Superb.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

If you fancy Fish n Chips, look no further. Service was friendly and quick. The food was perfect, nice and crisp batter, which wasn't greasy. I know us Yorkshire folk don't have a monopoly on fish n chips. But we know a good 'un when we see it. This will not disappoint.

“Excellent Pit Stop Off A1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

I was traveling to Edinburgh one Friday and we were caught in awful traffic. A quick check with Trip Advisor made us aware of Carlos.
We were not disappointed.. Easy parking, courteous staff and most importantly great food.
Only down side is that due to the design of the establishment you end up smelling rather strongly of fried food on your departure!
Won't put me off visiting again though and I will now try to plan it into my future journeys north.
Walking distance to the nearby castle too.

“Excellent fresh fish and chips and great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

We couldn't fault the fish and chips we had in Carlo's when we visited Alnwick while in the area seeing family. We went on a recommendation and weren't disappointed - cooked to perfection and with good service, we will be back!

“As good as you will find anywhere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

I have eaten fish and chips all over the UK, Rick Steins in Padstow, The Magpie in Whitby and many more and Carlos is equal to them and better than anything else in Northumberland. Great light batter around fresh fillets of cod or haddock.
