Good range of beers and wine - by the glass if you like. Food was really good and great value. Mix of friendly locals and holiday makers. Very comfortable. Good quiz Tuesday nights.

It was what a pub should be. Friendly, good service, good beer and also, something too few pubs serve. good wine by the bottle/glass. This was the second year we stayed in Alnmouth and the pub was a good the second time as it was the first.

What a pleasant surprise. The outside looked a bit run down, but inside there was a warm, friendly bar, with really good pub food. My partner was delighted with the lumps of black pudding in the gravy that accompanied the bangers and mash. My steak pie was a real pie (not just puff pastry floating on the top) with an... More

Great Sunday lunch and a beer festival ??? Man heaven. Able to sit outside with soggy dogs under shelter and enjoy our meal. Beers on tap a bit disappointing inside the pub - all pale - but all redeemed as the beer festival in the tent at the end of the car park which had a myriad of choice for... More

Four of us with our dog went for an evening meal. It was a Thursday evening but it was busy, with a great atmosphere. The staff were very helpful and efficient, and very friendly. We eventually got a table (you can't book in the bar) but were happy having a drink at the bar while we waited. The food was... More

The location of the pub/Hôtel is very good being on the High street and easily accessible. The ambience of the dining room is good and seems welcoming. However, when we sat down we actually moved tables twice because the surfaces were unclean. Nothing dramatic but enough just to put one off. We cleaned the table ourselves. The waitress was attentive... More

Arrived in Alnmouth this weekend using the weekends beer festival as an excuse. We weren't disappointed as there were around 35 beers and ciders to choose from, from various uk brewers. A relatively quiet Friday started in the bar which is a lovely cosy affair with a good range of ales and ciders. From there we moved into the marquee... More

Great pub with a fantastic atmosphere. We have eaten in the restaurant before but this time we had a bar snack - which was delicious. Great pub, fantastic atmosphere, fine selection of beers, stunning beer garden if the weather is good and dog friendly. Our fourth visit to The Red Lion and we will definitely return.

This was our local pub whilst staying in Alnmouth. There is nothing bad to say about this pub. The staff are polite and well trained, the service was very good. The food was excellent, the prices was very reasonable. Great pub, warm and welcoming.

Quick bar lunch today but found the meal to be of quiet poor quality and certainly not value for money. Sausage and mash with black pudding and onion gravy sounded delicious but gravy was very salty and there were simply chunks of black pudding and small onions from either the freezer or a jar added to the liquid - no...
