Located in the heart of the village and convenient for the castle and priory the Crown and Anchor offers a wide choice of gins, home cooked food and comfortable rooms. I particularly enjoyed fish and chips for dinner and the full English for breakfast. The friendly and helpful staff made this stay very special as they helped with transport arrangements the following day and wished us well on our walking tour in the north east of England.
The island is ideal if you enjoy walking and would like to savour some peace and quiet as the island empties out when it is no longer safe to cross from the mainland. I wouldn’t hesitate to return to the island and the comfortable bar stool at the Crown.
