Food: The Dirty Bottles Tap room and Smokehouse

The Dirty Bottles Tap Room and Smokehouse, Alnwick

The Dirty Bottles Tap room and Smokehouse is somewhere I have wanted to go since it opened, it's in a little town in Northumberland called Alnwick. And it is amaaazing. I am a sucker for any place with a rustic look to it and well.. this is it in a nutshell. Plus it's also a perk they do meat platters so I can eat as much pulled pork as I can.

So on our table there was an iPad where you order all your food, drinks and any extras. It's the best idea ever, no more trying to catch the waiters attention frantically when you're desperate for a drink. There was also a 'pour your own' tap on the table where you could pour Strawberry & Lime Rekorderlig or Coors Light.. amazing. I only wish I hadn't been driving so I could have had unlimited cider and cocktails.

I ordered the 2 meat 2 sides platter, and it was beaut! I'm a little non-adventurous and whilst being loaded with the flu I dosed myself up on enough potatoes to last a lifetime. I got sweet potato fries (which were delicious), potato skins (which I wish had bbq/cheese on), smoked sausage and pulled pork. My boyfriend got the brisket beef which was also delicious, if I hadn't of had the flu I would have got the 3 meats to try them all, but moderation and all that..

I also got a 'sharing sundae' for one, as my boyfriend was adamant he wanted fudge cake so I asked for a smaller 'sharing sundae'. It was sooo good. Chocolate brownies, marshmallows, strawberries, Morwick ice cream.. lush. If you don't know what Morwick ice cream is either, you need to check that out too (in the Summer). There was also a bar area which I guess would be fab when you're meeting up with friends etc but I didn't get the benefits of it from driving (cry).

If you have heard of 'Longhorns' in Newcastle, this is better. No ridiculous queues, you can book a table and it has way better seating arrangements. I loved it,  and already can't wait to return.. who's taking me next time??
