This was the only place with any room at all for a Sunday night, so we took the room with a separate bathroom down the hall. We weren't expecting much, but although the room was small and the deco a bit tired, we had a view of the priory, and real coffee and sparkling water on the tea tray. The... More

Sitting in the friendly bar ,which had a nice local feel about it,and it being lunchtime, I chose to have Haddock and chips. "Freshly caught" the barman said. He was right too.Really fresh fish is in a different league. I had to offer (reluctantly) my wife and daughter a taste as they had opted for the scampi,which was alright but... More

We stayed a couple of nights at the Crown and Anchor with our Labrador dog and fell in love with the place and the island. We had the only dog friendly room which had a separate bathroom just down the corridor but this wasn't an issue and was more than made up by the great views from the bedroom window... More

Attentive staff. The pub has a local 'feel' and a welcoming open fire and is furnished in a traditional style. Small but cosy with occasional live music. Beer garden available (when the weather allows)

Was part of group who preordered soup & sandwiches, very disappointed by the unimaginative choices and extremely small portions with food running out before everyone was fed. When this was pointed out to management, they were unhelpful and disinterested. Will not return or recommend to anyone else.

Started St Oswalds Way in Holy Island and had 2 nights at the C and A in order "to do" Holy Island. Of the 10 hotels/inns/BandB's we stayed in over 12 nights this ranked top/2nd. Not fancy but just very cosy and great value.

A lovely meal from the 'Specials Board', with warm, friendly Staff; a great atmosphere as dog friendly and lots of visitors from all over the world, so there was no lack of conversation; therefore The Crown and Anchor is a magnet!

We walked the St Cuthberts Way and decided to stay overnight on the island. We think you have to stay overnight get the full feel of the island with no mainland contact. The island takes on what feels likes a peaceful siesta when the tide comes in. The hotel puts on a delicious menu, we even got to taste Lindesfarne... More
