The owner's Labrador welcomes everyone into the pub. It's a great place and it is the only pub on Holy Island that allows dogs. Hence it is very popular. Very good food and friendly service. Go there, you will like it.

Our umpteenth visit to Lindisfarne, but our first stay at the Crown and Anchor Inn. Our usual holiday cottage was fully booked and finding a dog-friendly alternative on the island proved impossible, so we checked out dog-friendly hotel accommodation. A 'Trip Adviser' review about the Crown and Anchor impressed, so we went ahead and booked a couple of nights taster.... More

A large family room no 4 a choice of double or single bed, a sofa and the usual furniture and marvellous view of the Abbey plus ensuite. Part of an organised weekend I was accommodated here and enjoyed it. Comfortable and accessible and the attentiveness of the owner when requiring milk etc. also took my case up and welcomed me....

Just as well that Holy Island is so beautiful and makes you want to explore otherwise you would stay indoors a lot...Room 4 is large and comfortable and is a perfect base. I had the best crab sandwich for a long time and my hot smoked salmon in the evening was full of flavour and perfectly moist. Come stressed to... More

I shared a family en-suite room with my two sisters for a one night stay. The room provided all we needed including lots of extra tea and coffee,... More

Stayed here on 14th September for one night prior to our holiday further up the road at Spittal and then the Scottish Borders. We chose Crown & Anchor as they allow dogs to stay. Check in was swift and I was shown our room. Also informed a table had been reserved for our evening meal which was a bonus, as... More

We had dinner here on a beautiful September evening. Dinner is served between 6.00 and 8.00 pm, and supplies are limited, so make sure you book - even if you get a table, there is no guarantee that you can then get food! The menu has a good selection of choices based on local produce. The home-made soup was very... More
