The Crown and Anchor, under Paul’s stewardship is a friendly independent pub with rooms. It offers lunch and dinner, with excellent food in a cosy environment, as well as Northumbrian ales along with a wide selection of gins and whiskies. Keep an eye out for the ‘Whisky of the week’, offered at a discount. There is a beer garden at the back. Dogs are welcome in the pub and in one of the guest rooms (the double, see below). The Crown & Anchor will be closed over January 2024.
Dinner booking recommended, especially during high season when tables sell out, sometimes more than a week in advance. There is no need to book lunch.

A word from the owner
Paul says: “I myself am a chef with 26 years experience in various areas of the hospitality industry and with the support of my fantastic partner and my family I took the plunge back in November 2017 to purchase my dream business. A pub on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, the ‘Crown and Anchor’ Inn. Steeped in history, and dating back to 1827, she stands boldly against the back drop of a 15th century priory on an Island only passable by a tidal causeway, for a few hours per day. Stood at the heart of a small village with approximately 100 something residents and one of only two remaining pubs from an original ten. I am believed to be the thirteenth licensee over the past 193 years.The thirteenth licensee? In the current climate some people maybe superstitious, but I believe that with a small amount of support from those people that can help, we and the ‘Crown’ will be here for another 200 years (well maybe not me!).”
