My wife and I had a lovely meal here. Pie was delicious and so were the chips. Tempura prawns for starter were great and the dessert was yummy too. Cosy atmosphere. Went back the next night for curry night but it was too full so we went to the red lion which was good too. Only down side was the... More

Great pub atmosphere, and a good choice of well-kept beer. Food was excellent "pub fare" and good value. Friendly and efficient service - definitely one to recommend!

Lovely pub but couldn't taste the beer for the over riding smell of bleach!!! The service was friendly enough and this is still one of my favourite pubs in Alnmouth

We asked for the quiet part of the dining room, which is where we sat. The choice was good and the service, including banter, was simply great fun. After an excellent meal we had to walk it off - always a good sign!!

We enjoyed a great evening meal at The Sun Inn. The service was excellent, with everyone being friendly and helpful. The bar was well-stocked, the bar staff welcoming. It was very busy on the evening when we ate there, but this did not detract from the speed and efficiency of the service, and the atmosphere was very good. Final good... More

BUT returned for a drink a couple of nights later having... More

Nice pub. Lots of unusual wood decorations, from candle holders to picture frames. Pleasant young staff. Very relaxed. Simple menu. Baked camembert, crayfish salad, potato wedges. Unexciting Sunday roasts. Good mash and roasties. Al dente carrots. Frozen peas. Nothing to write home about. Could be so much better with a menu revamp.

We had lunch here after a walk on the beach. It isn't going to light any fires in the culinary sense but it is good basic pub grub. Hot, tasty and efficient. Very friendly to dogs which is always good for us and a very pleasant to spend an hour or so in

Liked the big portions and home made taste. Good service. Good for fish. Puddings looked lovely but too full
