The Tanners Arms ale house features six handpulls which carry all-local real ales, judiciously chosen, fastidiously kept and a pleasure to sup; a good selection of whiskies to warm and revive every palate; regular live music sessions of all varieties; the most eclectic jukebox in Northumberland; and most important of all, a friendly, laid-back environment full of good crack and camaraderie. A good old-fashioned English pub, and a pleasant spot to while away an evening…

Nice little boozer!

Good atmosphere and good selection of well kept local beers. Just the one bar and a little bit quirky - well worth a visit.

Quaint and friendly. Only been once but would love to go back soon when next in Alnwick. Dog friendly too. Highly recommended

This is a gem of a pub, a single room bar with seating around the walls and a log burner in the ingle nook fireplace. It serves real ales, real ciders, lagers a selection of bottled beers, malt whiskies and wine, it is the best place to drink in Alnwick. The locals (as is the case in all of Northumberland)... More

worth going in to say you've been. not the biggest of places but if you're lucky enough to get a seat they have a fine selection of local ales, great cosy atmosphere and an awesome duke box selection.

Popped in for an hour when passing. Busy place with live music. Good beer - a few guest beers and a great gantry - single malts - well priced. Really engaging bar staff and customers. Best pub I've found in ages. Thoroughly recommended.

This is a fantastic pub, great beer and so welcoming. A very unusual bar in it's decor but I liked it. When we come back to Alnwick this is where we will head. I had 5 different ales there and everyone was superb.

Found this pub by accident. Quirky Inside, nice ambiance and good beers. We tried a couple of the local beers, which were good. It seems to be a locals place but the batman was friendly to us as tourists. Good music played too, and not too loud.

Actors filming Downton Abbey drink here when filming at nearby Alnwick Castle - made the evening extra special!
