Small friendly pub with a small but decent menu. Mussels highly recommended and curry Thursday ok as well. Very dog friendly even accepting monsters like ours!

We visited this pub over the new year holiday and loved it. The staff are very friendly and helpful. 5 couples ate on New Years Day and all had great meals. Most of us had the roast beef for main course and agreed it was very nice and plentiful. The food isn't particularly cheap, but it's good value. Highly recommended.

Very friendly bar staff, welcoming regulars, lovely open fire and most importantly, a good range of beers and drinks, including specials such as the spiced G&T.

we called in here just for a coffee and brandy after an exhilarating walk on the beach.The dogs were made very welcome and such was the atmosphere we sat and ate. Whilst we only had soup and a sandwich we found it all of great quality and excellent value. One on the list for next time.

Stayed in Alnmouth overnight on 27/12/16 and had a meal and a few drinks in The Sun. Great little pub...great food..and the beer wasn't half bad either. They are also dog friendly if you have your four legged friend with you...like we did. Brilliant

Arriving mid afternoon we were glad to see this place was open, dog friendly. It has a roaring fire at either end and a bowl was brought out for our dog and she had some fuss. We both went for the burger which was excellent and very filling after a long trip. The chips are hand cut and nice and... More

The Sun Inn came highly recommended by family and friends, and while it wasn't a bad experience, I think it had been built up too much and didn't quite deliver. We both had fillet steak, and sadly my medium turned up medium-rare, and my wife's medium-rare was closer to rare, and while not terrible, wasn't up there with the tastiest... More

Called in for a coffee whilst visiting lovely Alnmouth. Although the coffee was hot, the welcome was lukewarm as was the room temperature. The room was dark, causing it to look drab, the fire was not lit and, although the menu seemed okay, the actual meals were not appealing and looked like frozen or ping meals. In the end, we... More

Beer and wine good. Food sounded very promising but was a little disappointing on arrival. Pie over cooked & chicken breast although tender was only warm. Children's food seemed better.

Thanks to The Sun Inn who made a trip to Alnmouth with their curry and quiz night - glad we booked a table in advance as the quiz was very popular and a good laugh on a Thursday. Can recommend the curries - opted for chicken tikka masala from their choice of three - but also popped in for an... More
