We were staying in Northumberland and visited Edinburgh for the day and caught the train from Alnmouth, we called into the Red Lion on our way back and we were greeted with such warmth and friendliness, it was very busy but local people vacated their tables so that we could come and join in the ambience, such a wonderful atmosphere...

A small (and I mean small) friendly pub. Excellent selection of local craft beers. Food is simple pub favourites done very well. Definitely worth a visit.

We stopped in, after a beach walk, for a drink before catching a bus back for our train. Very nice surroundings and helpful bar staff. We didn't eat, but the meals looked quite nice. A good place to relax with a book or newspaper!

Was recommended to me by a fellow guest at the Alnwick Lodge B&B so popped a lot for supper. Location wise was off the main drag of the picturesque town of Alnmouth, with on street parking. Walked in to the bar to a quintessential English pub scene, the hum of locals drinking and chatting with a nice open fire roaring,... More

Really nice relaxed and chilled pub with a roaring fire. What's more they serve good hearty food and it's well presented and made too. Definitely hit this place if you are after quality pub grub and bring the dog too, they really don't mind.

We dropped in for a morning coffee, as we knew it was dog friendly and was likely to have a real fire lit. Coffee was excellent, just asking for a normal coffee got a cafetiere which did two cups and a tastry small round of shortbread. £ for a couple of coffees, great ambience, and fab for those with dogs.

Visited for an evening meal. Thursday evening in early March found the bar area busy (including well behaved dogs) & some choosing to eat in bar area. We opted for the quieter dining area. Recently refurbished it was comfortable and toasty warm, seats about 22-24. The food we ordered was piping hot & cooked very well. Prices reasonable with Rump... More
