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…

As real ale drinkers it is so nice to find a proper pub that serves well kept beer, no juke box, no gaming machines and no food ( except crisps etc ) a joy!!! And on top of that they welcome dogs - keep up the good work

In my limited knowledge of Alnwick, I found The Tanners Arms the best pub in Alnwick. It was a recommendation from a local (I'm from Staffordshire) and they were not wrong. Not a bad pint to be found in here - and none of your John Smiths mass produced stuff either! And it was a great jukebox!

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.
