Stayed for a night in Room 3 and WOW! The attention to detail was fantastic, from the mood lighting in the well appointed ensuite to the little extras like the chocolates. The huge bed was very comfortable and the decoration and fittings were done to a high standard. We ate at The Red Lion and couldn't fault the food, which... More

Lovely welcome and great value meal. Alnmouth is a great place to visit and would not hesitate in visiting the Red Lion again. We met some lovely locals and visitors and had a great night out.

we were in Northumberland walking on Saturday 23 July and ended the walk in the lovely village of Alnmouth so we went to one of our fave pubs. I had the light lunch of curried parsnip soup and a stilton and red onion sandwich washed down with a good pint of Guinness. Another lovely visit and the lass serving was... More

I was part of a large group of runners who visited the Red Lion after the Coastal run which finished in Alnmouth. The pub has a large beer garden and attractive rooms with well kept beer and a range of meals. What impressed me was the staff and how they very efficiently dealt with a very full pub. Calm, friendly... More

Cosy little pub with lots of traditional features but has a huge pub garden with loads of table and chairs. Service was polite and efficient. Choice of four meats for Sunday lunch. I opted for the lamb which was very tasty, lovely thick slices and tender. Served with mash, broccoli, carrot/swede mash and a large Yorkshire pudding. Personally I would... More

We were staying at the restaurant for the night (me and my father) and want to praise the staff, chef and owners for making our meal a fantastic experience. I have quite specific catering needs, and did contact the Inn before we came, so they had some warning. I was apprehensive about eating as in the past it has been... More

Not having booked we were surprised to get in but so glad we did - lovely food, fish special and steak pie, and the chunky chips - perfect end to a busy day. The service was great, table wasn't available straight away but kept informed whilst waiting how much longer we'd be waiting, then sat down, order taken straight away... More
