Went for a mid day meal towards the end of September. Around 1.45 but the staff were happy to serve. Very friendly staff made us very welcome. Varied menu. Our meals were tasty and served quickly. Pleasant unhurried service. Dig friendly too.

First time visitors to Alnmouth and we popped in for lunch after a beautiful walk on the beach with the dogs. Had a very nicely presented and tasteful sarnie and a ice cold glass of Prosseco. There is a really relaxing feel to the pub and everyone that worked there was very friendly. We can back in the evening for... More

We walked in without a booking and we're lucky enough to be offered a table once the restaurant opened. Had a great chat with a couple of locals and the bar manager whist we waited, followed by a couple of excellent meals served by friendly interesting staff. Thanks for a lovely evening!

We had previously enjoyed evening meals at The Sun Inn on a couple of occasions, each time when it had been particularly busy. This time we only required an early lunchtime snack before wandering off to visit the nearby coast. Much quieter at lunchtime, we opted for simple cheddar and pickle sandwiches, not expecting anything special. When they arrived (admittedly... More

This is the more authentic pub in town. Came here for just a whisky, yet we enjoyed the atmosphere. The rooms are cosy and the people friendly.

This seemed to be the only place in Alnmouth that had a vegetarian Sunday lunch option; other places just seemed to offer pasta. It was wonderful and really tasty. We had a lovely lunch, plus our dog could come in. All staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Really recommended.

Last reviewed a couple of years ago. Booked a table we wanted in the corner (cosy). We got there 10 minutes early, our booked table was occupied. I told the staff, who went to talk to the couple and apparently the tabled was booked from 7pm, it was 10 to 6. We booked THAT table for 6pm. We had to... More

Staying in the pub we decided to eat there as it was steak night. Whilst my steak was ok but a bit overdone on how I'd asked for, one of our party's fillet steak was well overdone and dry in the middle. When he complained nothing was done and as we'd been cycling all day was very hungry so he... More
