This is the 2nd year we have come back to Alnmouth and our 3rd visit in total, one of the main factors that keeps us coming back is the food, and the Red Lion is our recommendation for anyone that comes here. The food is excellent, we have never had a bad meal and always try something different every time,... More

Small group of us who were together after a wedding decided to finish our time together with lunch at the Red Lion, alnmouth. It was a sunny day so decided to eat outside, however a shower of rain drove us inside. all 11 of us had a substantial meal before departing.

Found this pub in a Camra Beer Guide and we weren't disappointed. Good choice of beers and food and very reasonable prices. Good outdoor seating for fine days and a snug bar with a real fire for the cold days. Staff were very friendly. very pleasant beach walk nearby. Overall a very good start to our short stay Northumberland.

We've visited the Red Lion several times and so this review reflects our collective experience. The pub is a true old fashioned inn, with open fires and a great selection of real ales, the service is friendly and efficient. The dinning room is a more modern affair which provides good quality pub type food to a high standard. The beer... More

Friendly pub with relaxed attitude to dogs in the bar area which really helped as we were on holiday with our dog. Food was lovely and beer well kept. Very busy so need to book in restaurant (no dogs).

Went into Alnmouth for early evening meal and headed for the Red Lion after having eaten here last year. We hadn't booked a table but were shown to once straight away. I decided to have a starter of stilton & brocolli soup, which was the best I've ever tasted! That was followed by the beef stroganoff with sauteed potatoes -... More

We were a family of four eating on a Saturday evening. The pub was very busy but we managed to find a table in the bar area (there is a separate dining area). There was a good choice of cask beers as well as the usual lagers and ciders, served by friendly and efficient staff. Whilst the menu was not... More

Looking for Sunday lunch while in Alnmouth and came across the Red Lion. Was busy which is always a good sign so had a table in the corner of the bar but was no issue. Standard Sunday lunch with four choices of roasts but cooked to perfection. Good service from very friendly staff and a wide choice of drinks. Certainly... More
