Dining at the Treehouse Restaurant

The Treehouse Restaurant at The Alnwick Garden offers a magical dining experience to remember, with wooden walkways, twinkling lights and roaring log fire.

The menu features a superb mix of Northumberland fare made from locally sourced ingredients.

Always featuring local fish and seafood, meats from Northumberland’s farmlands and other regional specialities, the Treehouse Restaurant menus highlight local quality, taste and reflect seasonal change.

The drinks menu is also not to be missed with The Duchess of Northumberland’s own “Deadly Jane” range of cocktails. There’s also a great wine list, a good range of beers and regular live music.


Founded in 1847 by John Searcy, the pastry chef to the Duke of Northumberland, British catering company Searcys has been appointed as official caterer for The Alnwick Garden and The Treehouse in Alnwick 180 years later. 

Catering for the Duke and Duchess required skill and artistry few people possessed in 1837 and the high society and royal guests expected the best from pastry chef and confectioner John Searcy. After realising how sought after he was, he spoke with the Duke and Duchess about starting up his own catering company. After 10 years of devoted service The Duke and Duchess both agreed and even loaned him money to help start him off. John Searcy & Sons, the company, was founded in 1847.
