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.

Just popped in for a pint and a nibble , first impression of bar area was drab and uninviting . Batman was good and the young girl who brought our excellent "chips with cheese " was lovely . The clincher however was the beer garden which was FANTASTIC , great views , in the shadow of the Priory ... We... More

It doesn't look that promising, though the location is immediately super - right by the ruined priory, next to a grassy field full of sheep and a path leading to the harbour and the sea. You go in round the back, past the kitchens - but when the door opened to my room, I was delighted.It was huge, with a... More

We didn't stay here but stopped for a drink after a long walk on Lindisfarne (unfortunately it was fully booked for food that evening) and came back for lunch later in the week. The pub inside is lovely, simply furnished and with a log fire. We would have been happy inside but luckily we had good weather and could sit... More

We visited with friends from America. The food was good but let down by noisy and expensive accommodation. We a good evening meal but despite booking two rooms with en suite facilities last November we arrived to be told there had been a mix up and one room's en suite was across the corridor at the top of the stairs....

Friendly attentive staff, allowed time for is to choose, didn't feel rushed, great choice of local fish dishes, which friends in the group really enjoyed, the smoked salmon salad was very yummy, and my daughter enjoyed her chicken goujons, relaxed atmosphere, and the resident dog was loved by my daughter as well
