Nice small room/restaurant at the back of the pub with just a few tables..so it might be best to book before you go..the staff were polite & pleasant..we had fish n chips which was excellent..the pub also as a lovely bar garden which looks out over the harbour & castle..

A comfortable stay, the rooms were nicely decorated and the facilities good. The tea and coffee making facilities included a cafetière and fresh coffee, plus a good selection of fruit teas, traditional tea and sachets of hot chocolate. The room and bathroom were clean with good quality towels. The staff were welcoming and friendly.

We plodded I here on the night before the 2015 election, tired after completing the stunning St Cuthbert's Way in 4 days. Our room was large and overlooked the ruined castle grounds, where a peaceful flock of sheep grazed. Staying on the island was a wonderful experience. Once we had showered and walked out we found that all the tourists... More

We have recently stayed on Holy Island (again!) and had our Sunday main meals here. We both had the fish and chips on our first visit and my husband was delighted to learn he could have gluten free. The fish was cooked perfectly and melted in the mouth and the batter was not at all greasy. On our second visit,... More

We enjoyed 2 nights at The Crown and Anchor. We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was clean and comfortable. The food was lovely.....my husband was very delighted as gluten free food was available.....especially fish and chips!!!!

Stayed and ate here on our overnight on Holy Island. Our double room was rather tired and the bathroom dated but we were told that they are in the process of refurbishment. However very welcoming and friendly and in a beautiful location. Excellent restaurant with a really attentive waitress. She got our bill wrong but was very apologetic. Lindisfarne is... More

Having stayed on the island before we had no hesitation in booking for our evening meal at the Crown & Anchor, the food was lovely, (starters: Bruschetta, Kipper Pate. Main courses: Crab Salad, Haddock & chips). No drinks menu in the restaurant so you need to pop through to the bar to check the selections or bring a drink through... More

We visited the Crown and Anchor on the evening of the 3rd June expecting an average pub meal, but what a surprise we had! The food was wonderful, beautifully presented and served. Will certainly be back again!
