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

We struggled to find availability for a one night booking as there is limited accommodation on the island, the crown and anchor had one room left, probably because it was a hundred pounds and the other rooms were cheaper, we were able to park right outside which was a bonus, I was glad I picked the Crown and anchor as...

Sitting in the garden, which offered wonderful views was a great start to our experience at the Crown & Anchor. The food was freshly cooked, tasty and reasonably priced. This was my first visit to the Crown & Anchor but it won't be my last
