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…

I loved this pub. It is unique and the staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. It does seem to be a real locals' pub but they certainly didn't seem to mind a small visitor invasion. Great selection of drinks and interesting decor.

The Tanners Arms just goes to show great things come in small packages! Although small, it definitely feels like what hubby calls 'a real pub'. The variety and quality of the real ales available certainly made it a favourite with us. Quiet and friendly atmosphere - would recommend a visit if in Alnwick.

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 little pub with quality ales. Bar staff always friendly. Well worth dropping in for a drink and enjoy great music from the fabulous juke box.

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.
