I had a great burger in here, very tasty. Wife had the special, pork loin which she felt was average. Kids cleared their plates, and the beer was good. Staff were helpful and friendly. Prices on par for the area.

Had a Sunday lunch there, was ok but basic. Lady behind the bar discussed all her business in a loud voice, which we could hear along with several others. Just a pub but felt uncomfortable as she was talking about guests that were staying there, then when we mentioned to another member of staff we were senior citizens, (it mentions... More

This was a busy restaurant - glad we booked as several customers were turned away. The food was good - I had the salmon fishcakes off the Specials Board and they were delicious. I also had the chocolate and flapjack stack which was scrummy, but probably a mistake - far too many calories!!! The service was friendly and efficient -... More

The food and service at the Sun Inn was exceptional. Very good value for money. Next time we go to Alnmouth I would like to stay at the Sun Inn for Bed and Breakfast as our visit there for an evening meal has really impressed us.

Excellent pub. Good selection of food. The atmosphere was very good with a mixture of locals and tourists. Very busy you'd need to book a table I suspect. Couple of good draft beers. Very pleasant staff.

Visited late in the afternoon on Sunday 12th July, which may have been part of the problem. The meal was quite expensive at £11 per head for a main course, but the food left a lot to be desired. We ordered one beef and one pork dinner and whilst the meat was plentiful, it was pretty tasteless, Veg and roasties... More

We went to Alnmouth to celebrate our Silver Wedding. We had never been to the area before but I can honestly say that everyone we met were all really friendly. In particular the staff at the Sun Inn were all lovely and the food excellent. We both had the roast beef dinner on the Sunday evening which was fantastic. We... More
