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

We spent a very pleasant couple of hours here, drinking well kept ale and listening to the eclectic jukebox. No pretensions to being anything other than a pub, and all the better for it.

Good selection of real ale on tap.
My husband had great fun having halves to work his way through the beer selection.

Another holiday in Alnwick and back to our favourite boozer in town!
The staff here are always friendly and recognised us from previous visits which is always a nice touch.
Six handpulled real ales which are changed regularly and a selection of draft lagers as well as a shelf of single malts and this place is paradise and of course its dog friendly so what more could anyone want.
A good juke and friendly clientele make this the goto place in Alnwick for a few drinks and a pleasant way of whiling away a few hours of an evening most nights the intention was just to have a couple of drinks but invariably stayed far longer!.
Can't recommend Tanners enough if you are visiting Alnwick this is without doubt a must visit!

Great selection of Well Kept Real Ale, nice Atmosphere and good Staff. Visited twice during our weeks stay and advise any Beer Fan to do the same.
