Great atmosphere, excellent service, great food and a superb selection of ales, wines etc. All at a competitive price! I recommend Holy island 'Blessed Bitter' ale, with the steak and ale pie👍. Book in advance, as it is really popular!

We didn't get a warm welcome . The food looked good but expensive so we didn't eat here . Had a coffee and a tea you could taste the chlorine in the water we've had better.

Hi - we're coming to Holy Island for a visit on 17th May and wondered if it was necessary to book for dinner, or can we just turn up?
