The crab sandwich was very well presented and so delicious I felt like walking sideways in celebration. The bread was delicious wholemeal, dark brown treacle coloured and flavoursome. The real ale was very good. The service was excellent despite a big crowd of lunch time diners. Jolly, friendly ambience.

Called here for a quick lunch we were pushed for time being on a day trip. Had a superb crab sandwich on brown bread for lunch and it was gorgeous! Haven't enjoyed a sandwich so much for months. Staff are friendly but very professional, and helpful too. Second visit but would love to stay longer. 😀

We booked here as we wanted a place where our dog could stay. The welcome was excellent and the location is superb. We had all we needed and I was very taken with the art work and photographs in the bar area - really thought provoking. The breakfast was lovely and a plus that they had a vegetarian option. We...

We stopped here for a drink and a meal. Our pints were fine but the steak and ale pie was terrible - not a proper pie, just a dish of mediocre meat floating in watery flavourless gravy topped with a bit of pastry, accompanied by microwaved peas and a few oven chips. Almost £11 each for what must be the... More

Simply had beer here, it was warm, dry & friendly. We didn't eat here so can't comment on that, but the staff were friendly and helpful. I remember drinking here years ago with my late parents & spending new year there!!

Called in here for a quick snack after finishing a lovely walk round Holy Island. We ordered jacket potato with prawns and salad of which there was plenty and they certainly didn’t scrimp on the prawns, which is often the case, very tasty it was. My husband had a BLT which he said was very tasty too. Obviously can’t comment... More

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
