Visiting the area and looked for somewhere fir dinner. This was about 12 miles from where we were staying and well worth the drive out. Lovely interior, relaxed atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, and beautiful food. A great variety. We ordered the pate and the mixed fish starter. Both really tasty. I had the chicken wrapped in Parma ham on a risotto with asparagus and my husband ordered the pork Wellington. Both really well presented and very tasty. We saw the haddock and chips be served, it was huge! So pleased I hadn't ordered that although our dishes were substantial. No room for pudding I'm afraid. I had a glass of wine, great choice - everything on the wine list available by the glass. Would certainly recommend and visit again if in the area.

The White Swan is literally 100 yards off A1, and was in a list of recommendations at the HPB property where we were spending the weekend with old friends.

A welcoming smile, a big table where we weren't cluttered, and a [free] glass of Prosecco was a good start.

The smoked salmon, langoustine, roll-mop herring, kipper pate & prawn starter went down well with two of us, the other two enjoying terrine and goat's cheese.

My fish curry with monkfish was a delight, with similar comments from the others who tucked in to sea bass, lemon sole & venison with locally sourced vegetables to share, Sizable portions too, and well prepared.

Efficient, non-intrusive service complemented our meal, and the bill was very reasonable

Can't wait to go back when we're next down that way

Our visit to the Swan only 1/2 mile off the A1 as we were staying at HPB Lucker Hall nearby. I asked for the beef, my wife for the lamb. Both were delicious, locally sourced, cooked really to perfection, wonderful flavour and tender too. Happy servers and good service, all at sensible prices. 2 happy customers!

We loved this place. A small friendly pub just off the main A1 close to Alnwick, Bamburgh and Lindisfarne. It’s got 3 beautiful rooms. We couldn’t fault them and enjoyed the daily cake and Alnwick Rum.
Breakfast was amazing. Definitely no skimping here. Set us up for a days exploring and after a full day out and about the evening meals were top notch.
Every thing was spot on. Highly recommend
