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.

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

Visited here with 2 friends whilst on a weekend away. On entering the pub we were greeted by friendly staff who sat us at a table with menus. Our order was taken really quickly and the food was excellent, We all had different dishes and all 3 of us really enjoyed our meal. If I ever travel to Northumberland again... More

We have been holidaying in Alnmouth for several years now and each time we return to the Sun Inn for our evening meal. The food is wonderful, and reasonable priced and the staff are friendly and efficient, and nothing is to much trouble. Most nights the bar is busy, but there are a couple of tables is a quite area,... More

We were out for a special occasion meal. Dropped in on the off chance they had a table and had the fillet steak with their house wine (part of their steak night). Absolutely GORGEOUS. Highly recommended. We will be back.
