This is one of a few pubs near where we were staying in Alnmouth and it didn't disappoint. We went on a Wednesday night which was Pie Night (other nights are available such as curry or steak) but the main menu was also available which was good, so there were no restrictions. The food was lovely. Out of the four... More

This restaurant was booked by relatives who hadn't been there before and it was delightful. We were there Friday 1st May and it was Steak night with a free glass of wine. The staff were excellent and my three companions ordered steak which they said was cooked to perfection. Unfortunately for me I had a dental problem so chose the... More

The staff here are lovely. Nothing is too much trouble and we had a lovely meal. The place has a very good atmosphere and is very clean and comfortable in the bar area. I would definitely visit again and probably would check out availability for staying over. This was our favourite of all the bars we visited in Alnmouth.

We have just returned from three days at the Sun Inn, booked after looking at photographs and reading reviews on TripAdvisor. When we booked we were told that our room wouldn't have an ensuite, which was fine. What we didn't know is that the room itself varied considerably from the pictures on the website. We'd like to highlight the positive... More

Stayed for just one night. We had room 2 which was en suite with a relatively decent shower, lovely big bed and a large wardrobe for all our bags and coats.Even though the hotel is dog friendly and we have a dog of our own (who hadn't been able to come with us this time) I was pleased to see...

Came here for Sunday lunch on Easter Sunday with my husband and parents. Food was great and portion size perfect. We were sat in the bar which was nice and cosy. Will definitely return, only wish it was closer.

The pub is in an excellent position for exploring Alnmouth. Our room (4) was a very good size with a mightily impressive mirror! The breakfast was well cooked and indeed was tasty. However the shower was feeble along with the welcome. At no point did any of the staff actually enter into a conversation with us. Eg how was your... More

We stayed on 21st March and this was our dogs first stopover at a B&B. The beach is beautiful, room was lovely, cosy bar with friendly staff and locals. Food was excellent - I would recommend the mussels. The breakfast was excellent too - we will definitely be back.

Visited for lunch yesterday with family and two dogs. The pub is a delightful seaside retreat. Very warm and welcoming with great, wholesome pub grub. Just what you need after a bracing walk along Alnmouth beach. The dogs were very welcome, in fact the pub was full of them and there is a lovely atmosphere as people speak to each... More

Called here for lunch with my partner, we were in Alnmouth for an overnight stay and were attracted to the Sun Inn as it was dog friendly and we had our black lab with us. Everything was very warm and welcoming, lovely log and coal fire, professional and friendly staff that solved a minor issue we had promptly and professionally,... More
