A delicious Sunday lunch, with the beef cooked to personal preference; Yorkshire puddings served with both our beef and chicken lunches, with lots of fresh vegetables and lashings of gravy! Delicious, and a glass of red is also recommended. A warm welcome from friendly Staff,

Excellent food and friendly staff, open fires and cosy bar. Holy Island is a very special place even when the weather is not so good. Plenty of walks and quiet beaches. I recommend staying overnight to experience the island when the day trippers have left.

Wonderful evening meal with a choice of beautifully cooked and different vegetarian options. The room was very comfortable and we had a relaxed nights sleep. Breakfast was served with both poached and scrambled eggs just as we like them.

Poor your wife. Dogs are certainly allowed in at least one of the bedrooms and in the bar (a privilege of which they and their owners make full use), but not in the dining room. I don't know about family rooms. It's a small pub, and your son would be fine in his own room, I'm sure. It's a good pub, good food and a jolly (if canine) atmosphere in the bar.
