The only place on Holy Island that seems to welcome dogs it was great to stay somewhere where they were happy to have our canines in the room and in the bar where we ate. The locals who came into teh pub all seemd to love dogs so ours got lots of attention. The bedroom was a bit old fashioned... More

We stayed at the Crown and Anchor as part of a small wedding group - a friend was to be married in the castle on Holy Island. Some of the party stayed next door in the Manor House Hotel (we think we got the better deal at the Crown) From the moment we arrived the owners, Keiran and Zuzanna just... More

Characterful, great local ales, friendly owner who took the time to talk with us as we enjoyed our beer. Super location, lovely views over to the castle and priory, sunny beer garden (even in January).

We visited The Crown and Anchor on the wild windy days 8th/9th January 2015. The bar area at lunch time was quite busy for the time of year but by mid afternoon had quietened down as the few day visitors had to beat the tide back to the main land. We found the food first class both for dinner at... More

This might well be the best pub in Britain! The hosts and staff go to great lengths for their customers and guests. Food and beer are splendid, all taken in a traditional bar with a good old fashioned log fire. The bedrooms look out on wonderful views, and the pub is even dog friendly. My family group have just had... More

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
