Tried The Crown & Anchor whilst after a drink on a chilly day. The friendly barman/landlord (?) served a couple of nice pints. Others in the bar had tea and coffee.Sadly we didn't have time to eat, but a decen menu was displayed on the boards in the bar.

Stayed here in the family room, what a lovely comfortable clean room it was too. The breakfast and evening meal were of a good standard and the open fire was a lovely addition. The island is very scenic and quit. Check crossing times before you arrive.

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...

My grandson and I have just returned from a short break on Libdisfarne where we stayed at the Crown and Anchor. The location is great with the Priory right outside the bedroom window.

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
