Great Pub for Food and Drink

visited this pub twice while staying in Alnmouth. You can't book in which we never found a problem, we got a seat in the bar rather than the restuarant part, which we preferred. The food and drinks were very good both times and we also found the bar staff very friendly and helpful while serving us... read more

We ate twice at this restaurant whilst stopping in Alnmouth and the food and service was excellent on both occasions. We had a lovely evening meal in the separate restaurant which is nice and cosy. The waiting staff were very friendly and service was at a relaxed pace so it was great to enjoy the lovely food without having to... More

We stopped here for Sunday lunch, they don't take bookings but we managed to get a table pretty easy. It was busy and food did take quite a long time, but it was really good and the website does state that food can take a while to prepare as its fresh. It was worth the wait and I can recommend...

Just enjoyed a great meal here with the family. Great quality, good portions and very well kept Black Sheep. If this pub was located 200 miles to the south the price would have been at least 33% more ( writing as a Cambridge resident). Very friendly staff. Nice walking nearby.

Used to go there fifty years ago at the age of 16 ( underage drinking!). Went there again in June this year and it's a bit different now but still has a great atmosphere. Good ales, good food and dog friendly.

A small pub with an extra small dining space for residents so best to book to avoid disappointment. Room 6 was very spacious,clean and well appointed although up a small steep flight of steps. Good place to tour the coastline. Food was good but due to busy nature of service then several mistakes were made but staff were very pleasant... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal here during our Northumberland stay - food was excellent - the day we went they were a little disorganised as menus weren't ready etc but I love the fact that menu changes every day as all fresh when available! Have been twice now and will definitely be returning - shhhh keep this gem a secret!

Cannot book a table so didn't end up eating here but had drinks. Best part is taking drinks outside where there is plenty of seating - some with lovely views.

Misses had the Salmon special which looked, smelt and tasted lovely. welcoming to families portions were very ample. Decor was interesting and rustic. would... More

Ate here last night after arriving for the weekend. Walked in at 7pm & restaurant was already full so found a cosy corner in the bar. I had sausage & mash which was delicious, hubby had steak & ale pie again superb. We sat & had a few drinks afterwards enjoying the atmosphere, great place to people watch. This is... More
