“I would also like to say a big thank you to our hard working team at SherKhan. Without their hard work we wouldn’t have achieved this.”

SherKhan opened in Alnwick in 2019.

During the Covid pandemic, the restaurant stayed open throughout for deliveries in the local community and dished up free meals for key workers as a 'thanks to those who deserve it most'. Free meals were delivered to staff in Alnwick Infirmary, local care homes and the town’s ambulance and police stations.
