Alnmouth is a delightful village but all bars and accommodation busy. Rooms are not good value for money, more like £70/night than the £90 we were charged. Uncomfy bed, tired curtains and carpets - coming from someone who does travel regularly. I would stay elsewhere next time - Red Lion has better wine and menu.

The Sun Inn is a pub with rooms above. My room was pretty quiet though with a comfortable bed, and the pub has good breakfasts and really good dinners. It was not the sort of charming B and B one might expect, though. The linens and towels were spotless but my bathroom was not very clean and the floor was... More

Pub was cosy. We had a meal on Sunday evening and I chose a Sunday roast beef dinner. This was my mistake as it would have been better had I had it at lunchtime but warmed up dinners are never as nice. The beef was tough but it was not a problem to swop it for chicken. Hubby had scampi... More

We stayed here on the first night of a few days in the area walking the coastal path. We didn't arrive until about 9pm but as we got out of the taxi it already felt like a friendly place, as a local coming out of the pub noticed us with our cases and pointed us to the side door to... More

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...
