Treehouse Restaurant Alnwick Garden – Another Fab Restaurant in a Tree

25th October 2012

A lot of people enjoyed our recent piece about the restaurant in a fake concrete tree in Okinawa, Japan and said they would love to pay it a visit – this week we’ve found another treehouse restaurant, in a real tree and a bit closer to home.

The Treehouse Restaurant at Alnwick Garden in Northumberland and is open all year round. This unique dining concept is situated in a copse of mature lime trees and inside, the rustic restaurant interior features the branches and trunks of live trees growing through the floor. Outside the treehouse is accessed via a series of wooden walkways and rope bridges, lit with fairy lights to create a magical ambience. Diners describe the interior design of the restaurant as unique and magical. The handcrafted furniture is made from fallen branches and there is a large wood-burning fire in the centre of the room – and like the restaurant in Japan the food is regionally-inspired and locally sourced.

Out on the treehouse deck ‘the Potting Shed’ bar provides light lunches and drinks with an interior design inspired by a gardening theme. Like the restaurant, the interior of the bar is mostly constructed from wood and lit with twinkling fairy lights to create an intimate and ethereal atmosphere.
