“Lovely food and great staff”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Ate at this pub twice on our visit to Alnmouth, lovely welcome from the staff and the food was of very good quality. They have rooms to let but unfortunately no availability when we visited, will look to staying at the inn in the future though. The décor in the pub is lovely very clean and welcoming.

“Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We called in for lunch after a walk on the beach.
We shared a prawn tempura starter & bottle of Pinot Grigio. Our mains were pork & chicken, the bill came to around £38.
We ordered at the bar and chose our own table. The dining room was very cosy & quirky, The staff were pleasant.
The meat was well cooked, portions plentiful & veg (buttery mash, cabbage, carrots & peas) fresh. The Yorkshire puds were homemade and delicious.
Would return in the future.

“Hot and steaming Thursday night”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Just loved curry night at the Sun in Alnmouth. Great idea to have this every Thursday with poppadoms and pickles to start and a choice of three curries; and you can specify your own spice factor. The chicken Madras was superb as was the prawn Balti. Plenty of good quality grub in a friendly, lively environment.

Quiz night starts at 21.30 so an opportunity to relax after a great dinner and test your knowledge in the company of locals and visitors.

This is now a regular night for us. See you there

“BAD EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

After trying to get a table at other recommended restaurants in Alnmouth we eventually managed to get a table in the Sun. My wife and I ordered a very simple Angus burger/chips and fish/pasta dish at around 7.30. The meal eventually arrived at 8.30 but did not complain as we were not in a hurry. The chips were great but the burger inedible and my wife left most. Suggest they make their own burgers or change their supplier. The only identifiable fish with the pasta was mussels. A great disappointment and we left to explore what is a very attractive coastal town.
