The landlord and landlady were friendly and convivial even though the pub was quite busy. Obviously, on our visit clientele were of 40+yrs. Just about everyone was there to dine. Intersting combination of decor ..farmhouse meets beach driftwood...but does not mess with the inner interior designer because to be honest you will only have eyes for your food. It arrived... More

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
