For a relaxing meal and laid-back atmosphere, the pubs in Northumberland are the perfect option, especially if you want to recline and warm up in front of a roaring open fire.

For any lover of tea, the Earl Grey Tea House in what was originally the ballroom of Howick Hall is a prime attraction, the hall being the family seat of Charles, the 2nd Earl Grey and the namesake of the famous tea. Enjoy a light lunch or delicious cake while you admire the beautiful surroundings. Another of the popular cafés in Northumberland would be The Station Buffet at Barter Books, located in what was originally Alnwick Station.
