Overview

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…

Although the pub is not very big there is a Good choice of real ales, spirits and soft drinks, the staff are friendly and a good atmosphere. In winter there is a log fire to keep you warm.

Great pub, great beer, well kept and interesting. And, thank goodness they don't serve food - so not taken over by families looking for chips. Great jukebox, quirky decor creating a great atmosphere and local feel. The best pub in Alnwick.

Staff really friendly. Friday night open mic was brilliant. So unexpected and performers from all over. No silly stuff.

A clear focus on beer and a cosy atmosphere makes this one of the few surviving real pubs. Definitely worth a visit.
