My wife and I have visited Alnmouth many times for the excellent walking on the beach however we have just started eating here. We chose the Red Lion simply on spec but now it is a regular watering hole for us. The meals are simple and tasty served either in the bar where you can take your dog if you... More

Been coming to the red lion every time we go to Northumberland on and off for the last 3 or 4 years. It's a lovely pub with a beautiful beer garden and terrace bit at the back of the garden with comfy seats and good views. Food is typical pub food but tasty, the staff are lovely and the ambiance...

Stopped here after a day visiting the beach in Alnmouth. We sat out in the beer garden which had such nice views over the estuary. Would really recommend Alnmouth for it's beautiful beach as well as this food for its nice feel and helpful staff. It was the perfect day out!

Stayed for two nights. Room was next to the kitchen, but not really a problem as service was completed before we were ready for sleep. The room was clean and a good size. The food was excellent pub food quality and the menu was adequate. We found some reasonable wines on the wine list and the beer was good as... More

Really good local pub with a good range of beers. We arrived very late friday night without a booking but the staff were more than helpful and found us a room no bother for the night as well as letting us lock the bikes away in the back yard for the night. The room was everything you could need, clean... More

Everyone was very welcoming but room disappointing. My wife described shower as the only one she has ever been in and come out feeling dry - not much water and control impossible. Breakfasts were variable ( no yoghurts in Alnmouth!) and depended on who was cooking that day. Two evening meals were really good and not over-priced. All the staff... More

Found the Red Lion on the internet and were lured in by good reviews. Stayed for 2 nights in Room 5. Like previous review bed too soft but this is personal preference and not a major issue. Lived up to expectation created by positive reviews. Good bar with a varied selection of guest and regular ales, reasonably priced restaurant providing... More

We recently stayed in Room 5 at the Red Lion. The room was comfortable and clean, the only gripe being the bed which was too soft which, combined with the harder pillows, meant a stiff neck in the morning. When we first arrived in our room in the afternoon we could hear every word of the conversation taking place in... More

Just home from a few nights at the Red Lion. What a great find. Never been to Alnmouth before even though we have been to Northumberland several times but will definitely be back. The room was was very nice (room 5) but as previously mentioned the bed lets the room down. Its very low and also fairly soft. The food... More
