Review on Warkworth House Hotel, No 16 Restaurant
Originally built as a coaching inn on the site of four eighteenth-century burgage cottages, the Warkworth House Hotel sits comfortably in a village cradled by the a loop in the River Coquet, just a mile from the Northumbrian coast. Inside, it still displays some fine features, including an original staircase from Brandenburg House in London (once home of 'rebel' Queen Caroline of Brunswick).
The No. 16 Restaurant overlooking the courtyard is a friendly venue used mainly for evening meals and Sunday lunch. Typical offerings might include pan-roasted pigeon breast with wild mushroom fricassee, halibut poached in red wine on crab and pea risotto, and rack of lamb with colcannon mash. On the first Friday of each month, the Pudding Club gathers to sample all manner of toothsome delights; also don't miss the regular 'Spotlight on Seafood' evenings.
Alternatively, head for the casual Bar & Bistro if you fancy a light lunch, a cappuccino or a quick bite after work.
