Excellent Experience

On a busy Wednesday evening five of us sat down to an evening meal expecting a good standard of pub grub. We were very pleasantly surprised by a very varied menu. Two portions of Tempura prawns were just right as a starter between five. The main courses were served quickly thereafter despite the... read 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.

As the pubs in Alnmouth all seem to be quite busy, we booked a table for a Friday evening. The pub was busy but our reserved table was waiting for us in the bar area which looked like it had been refurbished recently. As seems to be the 'norm' for Alnmouth, there was a good choice of cask beers served... More

This is our second visit to Northumberland, and we were staying a little further up the coast than before, but as we loved the food at The Sun Inn on our last visit, we decided to go there again for lunch on the last day of our holiday. We got there just in time to order our food, and the... More

I had the salmon & asparagus quiche from the specials board for lunch, and was pleasantly surprised that it was almost 100% salmon. I had the crayfish salad for dinner another night (starter portion), and again, the crayfish was a large pile on the side of a decent salad (not just a few mixed in with some leaves). The staff...

Like their beer selection. The decor doesn't feel English but beach like. Everything was nice though until two children came in, one coughing a lot. Decided to leave.
