We dropped in for an early evenings meal and a glass of wine. The hotel has a dark interior and a light conservatory. We initially sat in the conservatory but it proved to be too warm and with no atmosphere. It felt like a "family room" from times gone by when kids weren't allowed in pubs. We moved into the...

This was a disappointment, went in on a very busy day- but this place was almost dead. Went to bar, no one behind ( outside smoking) had one drink. Conservatory roof needs a good clean and the place had no atmosphere. Went back to bar and again no one behind.. So we left. Wouldn't visit again

No real Ales, Younger staff were helpful but if it was the land lord that served us the appalling beer, he needs a lesson in customer service. Rooms clean and breakfast room updated but rest needs a lick of paint. And no ghosts!!

One of our favourite pubs in Alnmouth. Food is "ok" however not fresh. My friend ordered a particular burger as it states it comes with "strong cheese" which turned out to be a cheese slice. I paid an extra £1 for cheese on my burger which was 1 cheese slice. The burgers were supposedly Aberdeen Angus however appeared more like... More

Just returned home from an enjoyable weekend at the Schooner. We weren't left disappointed either as we had hoped to encounter some sort of ghostly experience. On our first night staying in Room 30 ( one of the rooms more popular with ghostly happenings) just after 12 we heard creaking floorboards outside our door and voices of a man and... More

Hotel is a little tired. Needs a bit of a make over, in a beautiful place with amazing views but the bar in the hotel was a bit souls. No pun intended., with their tales of haunting.

My wife and I stayed here as part of a large group of family and friends who were scattered around a number of hotels and guest houses in Alnmouth as part of a family celebration. I caught the smell of dampness as we entered the foyer, not unexpected in a building so old, but it paved the way for an... More
