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…

Found this pub by accident. Quirky Inside, nice ambiance and good beers.
We tried a couple of the local beers, which were good. It seems to be a locals place but the batman was friendly to us as tourists. Good music played too, and not too loud.

Actors filming Downton Abbey drink here when filming at nearby Alnwick Castle - made the evening extra special!

We visited the Tanners whilst holidaying in Northumberland. We had a cottage in Alnwick for the week (Mid July) and by pure look our cottage was on Hotspur place, just down the road from the Tanners.
I'm not sure which pub the previous reviewer visited but it certainly couldn't have been this one as it was without a doubt the best pub in Alnwick. We visited it every day during our stay and were always impressed by the selection and quality of the beers and ciders on offer. . The bar staff were all friendly and welcoming to us holiday makers and the selection of music on the Juke Box was excellent. I just wish I could transport it to my own town. Why the Tanners isn't in the Good Beer Guide amazes me. Don't bother with the John Bull Pub down the road - just go to the Tanners, you won't be disappointed.
