We visited The Sun Inn for lunch after arriving in Alnmouth for the weekend. The food is lovely - so much so once the rest of our party arrived on the Saturday we headed back for lunch again. It's a great bar with a fantastic selection of drinks and great atmosphere, lovely staff - you felt very welcomed. Can't wait... More

On holiday in delightful Northumberland and staying in Alnmouth, we had dinner at the Sun Inn. My Wife and I both had a Ribeye steak which was perfectly cooked to our liking. Altogether a nice experience albeit we ended up eating in the bar rather than the restaurant which was a bit disappointing as we were seated by the door.... More

Staying in Alnmouth we had a good choice of places to eat after a day in Edinburgh so we booked a table at The Sun Inn. It was not too busy at all when we arrived about 19.30 and after ordering, our food arrived in good time. I had an Aberdeen Angus Burger which was served with chips and was... More

We went in the Sun twice in the week we were there - once for Sunday lunch (lovely and plentiful) and once for curry night and the weekly quiz. The service is good and the food great. As pub food goes its as good as it gets.

Staff friendly and helpful, we were served promptly. Food was hot, well cooked. Nothing exciting, but didn't disappoint. Desserts very nice. Reasonably priced, good portions. I would go again.

We called here while in the area and enjoyed a nice meal. The atmosphere was welcoming and warm on a cold January night and the food was wholesome and tasty. The food was typical bar food, but of a high quality, with the speciality being their home made pies.(In fact there is a weekly 'pie night') This is well worth... More

Visited here a few times during our weeks stay in Alnmouth. Ate here on New Years Eve and had baked Camembert to share, then I had tempura prawns and my husband had scampi, which was all good and nicely presented. Very friendly staff, it's a nice pub.
