Our clientele come to wine, dine and stay at the Cook & Barker for the best of reasons: the combination of excellent cuisine, a delightfully traditional warm and welcoming atmosphere, well-equipped and comfortable rooms, the professional and agreeable service and the relaxed and friendly ambience.
The attractions of our nearest town of Alnwick have recently led to its acclaim as the “Best Place to Live in Britain” and the fame of both The Alnwick Garden, with its magnificent water feature and forthcoming tree-house complex, and castle, with its Harry Potter memorabilia, grows daily.
With more castles than any other county Northumberland is a magnet for those visitors keen to investigate the North’s history. The Cook and Barker’s nearest castle is, of course, Alnwick, (only 5 miles away), base of the ancient Percy family and, nowadays, home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland. Visit Alnwick itself, County town of Northumberland with a range of historical listed buildings, and find time to marvel at the Alnwick Garden.

We stayed for two nights Monday through to Wednesday morning in November having stayed at the Cook and Barker last year at approximately the same time. Northumberland is one of our favourite places and having holidayed here with our children we discovered the Cook and Barker on one such holiday and ate in the restaurant on a number of occasions. We have always enjoyed our visits to the Cook and Barker and intend to stay again in the future
