The Tanners Arms

Attraction details
Owner description: The Tanners Arms ale house features six handpulls which carry all-local real ales, judiciously chosen, fastidiously kept and a pleasure to sup; a good selection of whiskies to warm and revive every palate; regular live music sessions of all varieties; the most eclectic jukebox in Northumberland; and most important of all, a friendly, laid-back environment full of good crack and camaraderie. A good old-fashioned English pub, and a pleasant spot to while away an evening…

If you like real ales and a very friendly atmosphere then this is the place to go!
Ben keeps his beers in superb condition and believes in only selling locally produced real ales.

Alnwick is short on good pubs but this one is well worth visiting, with a warm, welcoming ambience and very well kept beers. Wish we lived nearby, we'd be regulars without a doubt.

Alnwick is a lovely place, especially when the sun is out as it was this weekend.The only thing was that a cursory search revealed little in the way of decent pubs; that is until we unearthed the magnificent Tanner's Arms. Just one smallish room but full of character and an excellent selection of beers and, it must be admitted, malt whiskies both of which went down perhaps too easily. Well worth searching out as is the equally estimable John Bull which we discovered later. Don't miss them both, they're well worth a visit.

After reading previous reviews, I had high hopes for my visit to the tanners inn.
I especially liked the landlord ben, who has fabulous taste in both beer and jackets.
I will definatley be returning.....

Fantastic atmosphere, an excellent pint of cider and friendly people. Disappointed we only found it on our last night.
