We have eaten here quite a few years ago and remembered it was good so we decided to give it a go again. The staff were friendly and welcoming and as it was early we were able to get a seat by the open fire. Although food was advertised from 5pm were told we could order food early. There is... More

We dined in the Red Lion in their dining room. The food here was really nice, serving a good selection of dishes across the menu. The service here was good, as was the portion size. We will be back.

Visited Alnmouth today; usually come armed with a picnic, but today was a bit last minute, so we visited The Red Lion for lunch after a lovely walk along the beach. Dog friendly, we sat in the bar and ordered steak & ale pie & pork sandwich & chips - 'proper' chips! Service was great, food was great, good portion... More

My better half and I visited Alnwick Gardens today and decided on a late lunch. I remembered this pub from our last visit. It's less than 5 miles from the gardens and a lot cheaper to eat here. Alnmouth is worth a visit by itself. We arrived around 2.30 to find the bar area really busy, a good sign. As... More

We were very pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality and cooking skills we encountered at the Red Lion so much so we chose to eat there for the whole of our stay and enjoyed all of our dinners.

We called in here for a spot of lunch. The pub offers 'order at the bar' style service which was friendly & efficient, as was the service of the food. The food was very tasty. Not long to wait, and the onion rings were a fab addition. The only a clear drawback was the absolute lack of music, even though... More

First visit and left very impressed. I had liver and bacon. £9 and absolutely excellent. Others had roast chicken and rump of lamb. I would class it as better than the typical pub; service was excellent, beers very well kept and a wide choice on the menu. Desserts were very good...sticky toffee, ice cream were pronounced very good. The STP... More
