“Great pub, lovely food”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

Lovely local pub with friendly staff, good atmosphere & good beer.

We live locally & use The Sun as our village pub. The beer is always good & the food is freshly prepared, well cooked & delicious. The menu is quite small but that's not a bad thing. Keep it simple & do it well is a motto that a lot of pubs could follow..

“Nice little pub”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Only used the pub as it was HQ for a marathon that weekend. Lovely choice of ales. Prices decent and service top-notch. Had a glance at the menu which looked great and, had I had time, I'd definitely have stopped.

“An "OK" pub”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Popped un here after deciding against the Schooner for a meal. Staff seemed ok but did find the pub to be very cramped for space. Food was a little over price for the size of the portions but then they added the bill up wrongly so saved some cash there.

would not say I would return tomorrow but an ok place to go to.

“Good Pub and varied menu”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Good solid pub in Alnmouth, good varied menu (had excellent hake), friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices, and true to Alnmouth, they also let dogs in the bar. One to go back to!

“Welcoming, hospitable, lovely.”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

After a long, wet, coast walk I stopped here. Mainly due to the very nice menu displayed ouside. In, in a flash...and ordered the home-made smoked haddock with Northumbrian cheese fishcakes.

They were so nice. Complemented by the nice bar-lady, the homely bar and the clean well-appointed premises.

The food was really good. Trust me :)
