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…

“A lovely traditional pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

This was our local pub during a stay in Alnwick. It has a really cosy atmosphere with local beers and cider which was a little different from the normal.

I'd definitely pop in if you're in the area. Especially if you're feeling cold as you can enjoy the lovely open fire along with a tasty pint.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

Amazing pub. Such great service. Wonderful company. Large fire always on. Fantastic local beers. 5 min from centre. Found it by accident last year. This year we booked a holiday with a cottage deliberately near to it. Juke box with the best tunes ever!!! No cheese. Totally nothing but classics. If it's not your scene avoid so you don't ruin it for the rest of the world!! Outstanding!!!!!

“Best Live Music Venue in ALnwick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

We visited in August when there was a folk nite on and not being a folk music lover thought we would have one drink and leave,,,, OMG,,, We were here all nite, Brilliant atmosphere, Luvly friendly people and music and all the acts were very entertaining and you can even take your dog in. Hoping when we return that they will have another live music nite on a Sat nite. Drinks were good and inexpensive.

“The best beers in Alnwick”

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.
