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…

While visiting Alnwick we found The Tanners Arms. Drawn in by the 'Dog Friendly' sign and we were not disappointed. A lovely bar, the locals, other visitors and staff were friendly and the beer was good. Definitely would recommend this place and visit again....a great early evening drink.....

Staff really friendly. Friday night open mic was brilliant. So unexpected and performers from all over. No silly stuff.

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.
