The accomodation and especially the food is excellent. The staff are all very friendly and as there are only 4 guest rooms and all the staff live on site, there is a very pleasant family atmosphere about the place. The full english breakfast is the best I've had in a long while. On the second day I couldn't make up... More

We rebooked immediately after our lovely stay in June as we enjoyed our visit so much and couldn't fault it. The staff have a lovely rapport whilst being professional and attentive no matter how busy, and the atmosphere is extremely relaxed . We were in room 4 which is a twin with shower room, In hindsight I should have booked... More

Stayed here for one night after walking the St Cuthbert's way. It looks like a basic pub, which in some ways it is, but my room (3, I think) had great views over the field and the priory. The room itself was a decent size and had everything you'd need. Slightly shabby look, but it fitted in well and was... More

Clean, comfy room. Was concerned about noise from the bar below but no sound made it up to us even with the window open. Breakfast was very good, service was polite prompt and friendly. parking was limited but that seems to be the way on the Holy Isle. Overall I'd be happy to go back.

Kyle and Zuzanne took over this Hotel (pub) 18 months ago when it had been run down and are in the process of building it up again. It is still a work in progress in my opinion because some things are excellent and some are not! We stayed in room 1 which was very large and overlooking the Priory. The... More

We stayed two night B&B at the Crown and Anchor in the idyllic Lindisfarne. The owner and staff are really friendly and helpful. We had Room 1 and it was very bright, clean and of a good size. We had a view of the Priory out of our bedroom window. We had a view of the Castle out of the... More

Stayed three nights with our dog and what a great time we had. The room we booked was ideal and well priced, the food was fab; the freshest oysters, amazing dressed crab, locally caught lemon sole and sea trout both as good as they could be, melt in the mouth steaks and great breakfasts. What is not to like? Then... More

So I walked into this pub, missed the step and now have a massive bruise. Which I wasn't going to mention, till I queued for the loo and a couple of ladies pointed out the other step down to the ladies' toilet - poorly lit, black on both upper and lower levels, and which they'd nearly missed in light sensitive...

We didn't stay here but visited Holy Island for a day trip during our vacation and have to say after walking the perimeter of the island this was a perfect spot for lunch and we weren't disappointed. First impressions as you walk up to the pub are it's a bit drab and run down and yes on the outside it... More

Just come back from four days cycling in Northumberland and stayed at three different hotels, this one was the cheapest so we expected it to be the worst and it turned out to be the best. Its a lovely little pub in a fantastic location with friendly staff, well priced good food and beer.
