About
The Tanners Arms ale house features six handpulls which carry all-local real ales, judiciously chosen, fastidiously kept and a pleasure to sup; a good selection of whiskies to warm and revive every palate; regular live music sessions of all varieties; the most eclectic jukebox in Northumberland; and most important of all, a friendly, laid-back environment full of good crack and camaraderie. A good old-fashioned English pub, and a pleasant spot to while away an evening…

This little pub tucked away is well worth a visit. The beer was kept well and reasonably priced, CAMRA price £3 a pint Monday to Thursday 5 -7 pm. The attractive bar is pleasant and cosy with a real fire .

Nice little pub (and by little I mean tiny). One room with slightly quirky decor - a tree in the middle of the pub - and it looked like most of the clientele were local, always a good sign.
A very fine selection of beers, and the one's tasted were excellent.
Quiet, good music from the box, a friendly - all in all a nice spot to have a quiet relax after a busy day touring.

Visited Alnwick last year and found this little gem, just got home from another holiday there and visited this pub 6 days out of the 7 we stayed. Good selection of craft beers/ales, lovely little pub, great atmosphere, and if it's tight for space, lots of people were happy to budge up or share a table with a stranger. Genial host and the best damn jukebox around!

Visited twice in April 2022, early evening on both occasions. A busy little pub. Mainly local clientele, but we (my wife and I, plus dog) were made to feel very welcome. Excellent selection of beers and a good atmosphere. Will definitely visit again

Called into Alnwick for a meal at Dirty Bottles but they got hit by Covid pings. Gutted. Walking aimlessly round town when Tanners came into view. The board mentioned 6 ales so sod it! Walked into a stone floored room with a tree spreading over the ceiling. Met by a friendly landlord who talked me thru his local ales. Had a lovely session ipa and then a oaked porter. Both were excellent condition. Wish I'd known about the Tanners sooner. Well worth the visit!

What a brilliant pub. Great beers, great prices. Selection changes regular. Cozy and rather cute. Real fire and dogs welcome. Staff lovely. Wish I lived in Alnwick then it could be my regular local. Sadly I don't live here so could only visit on holiday. I would recommend anyone else on holiday in or near Alnwick to visit. If you'd like to remember what a real pub was visit. If you like to know what a real pub is, visit!

My wife and I have enjoyed a two week break in Alnwick and have loved every minute of it. One of the highlights has been the time we have spent in this great pub. The Landlord, Simon, is a smashing guy who made us really welcome and provided me with lots of good advice about the superb beers that were on offer. There is a regular turnover of real ales and it was a delight sampling them. This is a pub in the real sense, there is no food, just excellent beer and a cracking juke box. The decor is excellent and the ambience is perfect. A visit is a must for anyone staying in Alnwick who likes beer.

Nice warm welcome and a lovely pub interior. Fabulous selection of exceptionally well kept real ales from local breweries. Definitely worth a visit - note extended opening hours so practical to visit during the day now.

Found this little gem when visiting Alnwick and were not disappointed. We were greeted warmly when we entered and found a good choice of ales. We visited here twice while we were in the area and would happily return if back in the Northumberland area.

We paid this bar a visit on a weekend break to Alnwick. It's a lovely, welcoming, cozy wee bar. Good selection of whiskies & gins. Nice roaring wood burner on. The proprietor was friendly with a good sense of humour. Our hubbies returned the following night. We will definitely go back when visiting Alnwick again.
