Stayed here in the family room, what a lovely comfortable clean room it was too. The breakfast and evening meal were of a good standard and the open fire was a lovely addition. The island is very scenic and quit. Check crossing times before you arrive.

Been for food many times and always lovely. Bar is a good atmosphere with a real fire. All staff are friendly and helpful. Dogs are welcome in bar area plus they also have a dog friendly room! Will be back for food!

Warm welcome, clean family room and great views of the Priory and Castle. Convenient location for all attractions. The food at both our evening meal and breakfast was of a very high quality and was served promptly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Our room was a good sized double with an en-suite off to the side. Neatly furnished, clean and more than adequate with tea and coffee making provision. We dined there in the evening and the food was good, tasty, and hot. There was a good choice and some specials were also available and considering we were there in early December,...

Lindisfarne is a special place and this pub suits it perfectly. Lovely people running it (they live on the island) we only had a beer but it was very welcoming and warm. They also do food and accommodation.

This is a great little put with lots of charm. The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming. Smashing fire in the grate for those cold and wet days. The staff are very friendly. The food is supposed to be lovely and certainly looked great, but sadly we didn't book in enough time to get a table. Top tip, book in...

Have visited Lindisfarne many times so on this occasion we let the others go off and do their thing, so with time on our hands, as seen all the sights we sloped off to have a pint and a sit down, staff are great, fire was warm, beer was cold and good what more do you need
