Great shop, humourless staff
Aug 2021
Great gift shop and mead. Spent a fortune. Very humourless, rude woman on the till ruined though.

My husband does have an annoying propensity to 'make jokes' but when he jokingly asked for a discount he was told, 'you are in England now, not abroad'!! We never go abroad so that was a rude assumption.

The array of gifts we bought was vast and enjoyable.

Great shop, nice staff and lots of different drinks to purchase.
Good social distancing marking on the floor and the staff wore masks, so felt comfortable.

Visit during Covid 19

Bought some lovely mead but the shop needs to limit the number of customers in at one time and sort out the social distancing when queuing for the till...some visitors have no idea about keeping their distance.

Lovely shop
Aug 2020 • Couples
Lovely shop, very disappointed that no tasting was available due to covid restrictions. Can’t see why a staff member wearing appropriate ppe can’t be holding a tray with samples in individual plastic mini cups for visitors to try then disgard - which is what would happen anyway under normal circumstances.
The woman on the checkout needs to learn some customer service and get lessons in how to smile as she’s so miserable. She tried to charge me double for three items, I pointed out her mistake which explained by not sub totalling from the previous customer. When I queried the receipt which showed original double about she argued with me! No need to be so rude

Best gift shop on the island
Aug 2020
This was the best gift shop on Lindisfarne, not just for mead and wine but also for gifts and cards etc. Nicely run, and COVID secure measures in place but still with a nice atmosphere.

Many thanks to Harry for excellent introduction to the many meads and rums of Lindisfarne. Great knowledge, with many samples to try, we almost missed our tide crossing!

An absolute must visit when on Holy island
Nov 2019 • Couples
Been to Holy Island 3 times this year its a wonderful magical place where time stands still with jaw dropping scenery all around. No visit is complete without visiting the winery where you can sample the meads before you buy, the staff are so welcoming and knowledgeable about everything in the shop and always do their best to look after you, my dad is disabled and the lady who served us (Chris) even offered to carry our bottles to our car outside to help!! Will definately be back in the new year! Thanks
