The Tanners Arms was well known as being one of the best pubs in Alnwick some years ago, but sadly this is not still the case. When i went in there was a smell of sulphur hanging in the air like the drains needed cleaning (or maybe someone at the bar couldn't control themselves). Uninterested barman served an unremarkable pint.... More

There are three main attractions in Alnwick. The Castle, The Garden and The Tanners Arms, perhaps this pub should be at the front of the list. In an age of dreadful identikit chain pubs and bars, it's refreshing to find an independently run pub that sets its stall on crackingly well kept beer and creating a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.

Gorgeous little pub and a very friendly barman. All made for a good place to get our group 'regrouped'!

The best pub I've been to in many years, fantastic selection of ales. Found it by accident while looking for a CAMRA Pub. Will return time and again.

This was our local pub during a stay in Alnwick. It has a really cosy atmosphere with local beers and cider which was a little different from the normal. I'd definitely pop in if you're in the area. Especially if you're feeling cold as you can enjoy the lovely open fire along with a tasty pint.

Amazing pub. Such great service. Wonderful company. Large fire always on. Fantastic local beers. 5 min from centre. Found it by accident last year. This year we booked a holiday with a cottage deliberately near to it. Juke box with the best tunes ever!!! No cheese. Totally nothing but classics. If it's not your scene avoid so you don't ruin...

If you like real ales and a very friendly atmosphere then this is the place to go! Ben keeps his beers in superb condition and believes in only selling locally produced real ales.
