When a restaurant is this close to a major tourist attraction (Alnwick Water Gardens) it does make me a little apprehensive. Mass catering isn't something we Brits have ever quite figured out how to do. Couple that with it's location in one of Europe's largest tree houses and I was dreading some kind of themed eatery with staff dressed up to look like something out of Lord Of The Rings.
I need not have worried. The food is very good and the service very friendly.
The loos are at the top of a spiral staircase and I would recommend visiting them before attacking the excellent locally brewed beer!
The interior is very reminiscent of a mountain restaurant in a ski resort except that the bill is about a third of that you would find half way up the Alps. I didn't have the nerve to sit on one of the 'rustic' chairs that appeared to be a triumph of design over comfort - but I could be mistaken.
After our very enjoyable lunch we left via a jungle like rope bridge to complete the disorientation begun in the oxygen starved loo.
