Don't be lured by the lovely website. Not good

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

I was looking forward to visiting the Schooner Pub and wasn't disappointed! The landlord was really kind and indulging our curiosity behind 'the haunted pub' stories and was very friendly, as were the other staff. Yes. It's oldy worldy, but that adds to it's charm I think! The restaurant we sat in was nice too. However, the best bit was... More

Having said that the beer is good and traditional pub grub is served and also there is a take-away option. Nothin fancy, just a straight forward pub with good prices.

Its difficult to get past the scruffy & very down at heal feel of this pub, with its abysmal decor and yards of electric cables looping around the walls and ceilings. But if you do manage it, the food can sometimes be quite rewarding. Our breaded mushroom starter with an extremely dreary salad was not at all enjoyable, although her... More

We all shared a family meal on a lovely sunny afternoon. Accepted the outside space was not the most attractive and would perhaps benefit from some potted conifers to disguise the building works to the rear. However, full marks for a speedy service, generous helpings and very good bar food! We would visit again!!
