“Beautiful little place”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Stumbled upon this place during a short visit to Northumberland coast. Very impressed with the food and service and the Crab Salad was divine. Would be very inclined to book a stay here for our next visit to this area.

Second visit and great. We ate today, the crab sandwich was very good, excelllent beer and perfect location. Good access for my disabled father and the large tables ensure reasonable privacy. We will definitely go again, especially looking forward to having the mussels.

Spent one very pleasant night here during a trip around Northumberland / North Yorkshire. Evening food was excellent and affordable, not to mention far superior to many a quality restaurant. Service was friendly, relaxed and super-helpful ; Dani and her Dad could not have done more to make us feel welcome. We would willingly return.

Stayed here for two nights in the family room. Very welcoming and friendly staff and great food served in the bar and at breakfast times.
Family room was huge and spacious and nicely decorated.
My only negative would be that the Family room is directly above the bar area. Yes were knew we were sleeping above a pub, but the noise feels so loud, and there was a constant door slamming, which I can only assume was the front door as customers came and went. It did all go quiet at a reasonable time though.
I would definitely go back to eat and drink, but probably not to stay with small children.

Stayed here riding the Coast & Castles route.

This is the sort of unpretentious place that gets it right.

The room was clean and quiet, the bathroom spotless with a good shower. The bed was comfortable. The bar was friendly, the beer well kept, the food good. Breakfast was excellent. Best of all, the service we received throughout was unfussy, helpful, and kind.

If I could suggest anything that would make your pub an even better place to stay, I'd put some local specialities on the menu - indulging a righteous appetite is one of the charms for me of travelling by bike.

Many thanks, by the way, for letting us keep our bikes safe and dry in the cellar.

Topped off a great day in Alnmouth with a great meal! Welcomed by friendly staff into a cosy pub. Good selection on the menu-struggled to choose it all looked so good! Service was very swift and the food reasonably priced. The portions were excellent but so was the quality. The mussels are particularly recommended!! Overall would definetly recommend going and would definetly go back!

My husband & I have just a lovely weekend at the sun inn, everything in the spotless clean rooms you require, good food and very friendly service. The bar is busy with a great atmosphere, everyone made welcome even our little westie holly. We will definitely be returning to sun inn to spent more time in the beautiful part of the Northumberland coast.

Room Tip: Next time I would request a room with a bath rather than a shower, needed after the lovely long walk...
