We have not stayed in the Sun, but we do eat there a number of times when we visit Alnmouth. Not a huge menu, but the food is lovely. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Can't fault it.

Hi Livyt88 Gluten free was not a requirement for myself so I don't know, however, if you call the hotel direct then I'm sure they will be able to answer your query. The telephone number is 01665 830 983
