This is a warm, friendly local pub offering good, wholesome food. They have different "themes" for the menu each evening and we enjoyed our "Pie Night" enough to return for the curry experience. Sadly, the curries seem to be bought in from some other establishment and appear to be cooked down to a price. In my view a curry should... More

A lovely atmosphere in this pub and decorated in a nautical style. We didn't stop for food here but the beer was good and the meals that other people had looked good

Good sized car park, welcoming interior. Pleasant staff, good wholesome food, male friend had the 'Whale of cod' - a challenge and delicious. Roast joint of the day served in a 'stotty' with home made chips and side salad was a good portion. Would definitely return.

Recommended by locals for a good evening. They had a band on and although the pub is small, it had a really friendly atmosphere and good beer. All the other pubs were empty. Go when a band is on

On a quiet night in Alnmouth when most other places recommended on Trip Advisor were shut, The Sun was warm, welcoming and full of good cheer. The vegetarian mushroom and stilton pie was delicious - one of the best veggie pies I've ever had. It was nice to be asked whether I'd like vegetarian gravy to go with it too.... More

We ate here twice during our stay as we really enjoyed the food, especially I have to admit the mash. Really great pub type atmosphere, with comfortable seating and a roaring fire. The décor is probably not to everyone' taste but it looks as it a lot of effort has gone into creating a relaxing place to sit. The lady... More

We weren't sure what would be open in Alnmouth in March on a Sunday evening , luckily the Sun Inn was. We didn't book, and were lucky to get nice big table for all 7 of us. The staff were very friendly and the menus were good, the kids choices were ok. Food was prompt, tasty and plenty of it.... More
