The Lindisfarne Inn
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Stayed here as second last night of walking the st Cuthbert's way. It looks like a chain inn, but the staff were brilliant, really friendly and helpful, the rooms in a separate chalet block were smart and modern and the food in the pub, while not haute cuisine, was certainly perfectly acceptable for what it cost. breakfast was also good.
Rooms were also surprisingly quiet, considering it was right next to the A1.
Overall, I'd certainly recommend this, as much for the staff quality as anything else.

We were staying in a cottage close by, with our dog, and ate here three times. We had to sit in the garden, as we had our dog with us, but as it was lovely warm weather we would have chosen to sit there anyway. During our few days we tried Scampi, Spiced Lamb Hotpot, Burger, and Roasted Cod. We enjoyed all and for us the portions were ample and the value for money was good - on average we paid around £25 for two meals and two alcoholic drinks. We just had the one course and would not have been able to manage anything else. The young staff were friendly and the service was good. We would certainly recommend.

Room Tip: We were not staying here - so can only comment on the food

We were staying for a couple of nights at a nearby B&B, and enjoyed evening meals at The Lindisfarne Inn on consecutive evenings. Unusually, there were FOUR good veggie choices on the menu, plus a number of veggie starters, all of which was great news for us.
Service was very good, with friendly, helpful staff - obviously well-trained, and all appearing to be happy at their job.
The food certainly lived up to our expectations - no disappointments here.
On the second evening (a Saturday), the restaurant was very busy so we were glad that we had taken the precaution of booking in advance. Once again the service, choice and quality of food experienced was very good.
Staff were kept very busy clearing and cleaning tables in order to enable a quick turnover of hungry diners. Despite their best efforts I suspect that this pressure contributed to an element of the dreaded 'Sticky Table Syndrome'. No criticism of any particular member of staff is intended (they were using cleaning sprays, and wiping tables vigorously!), but there is room for a touch of improvement here (a more frequent change of cleaning cloths perhaps?).
If it had not been for this relatively small but important aspect, we would have had no hesitation in giving an overall rating of '5'.
As it stands we would certainly recommend, and I am sure that we will be returning sometime in the future.

It was clear that as soon as I stepped into this restaurant that it would not be pleasant. After being seated by a member of staff to a seat by the window which was styled like something from a 90 year old couple's living room I proceeded to read the menu. To be fair, the menu has quite a variety of dishes on offer but the prices are very off putting. When £12.95 is the price of a lamb hotpot you expect the quality to be OUTSTANDING. However, this was not the case. The sauce was rather water, the lamb was tender but had no taste to it and I nearly broke my teeth when I tired the rustic bread. If the price was lowered on this dish then I would have perhaps been satisfied. I definitely had room for a dessert but opted not to due to the high prices again and my uncertainty over whether the quality would be above satisfactory. I think this restaurant is trying to overcomplicate their dishes and would be better off selling some more basic dishes at lower prices along with some of the pricier dishes to cater for everyone. An excuse about the head chef being off for the night was also used and I have seen another diner comment on this issue on Tripadvisor as well and quite frankly a professional business using this excuse is unacceptable.

We were sorry to read you review. Our prices reflect quality ingredients, home cooked food, made to order and excellent service. Decor is of course subject to taste - like the lamb hotpot. I happen to love the dish. We are what we say we are - an inn, with rooms offering good value food and drink. We do our best to please our customers as believe it or not, we want them to return and recommend us.

On main road A1, at turnoff for Holy Island.. ideally situated to base yourself for Holy island, Bamburgh and Alnick and coastal Northumberland.

Room Tip: hotel on slip road beside A1, but no noise from motorway...

Thanks for the review - the only thing we would point out is that although we are set off from the A1 it is a single A road, not a motorway. Traffic noise is very minimal as you say - we're quieter than a town centre inn that's for sure!

We ate here. Nice inn, good selection of food. My fish and chips was wholesome and tasted delicious. My wifes veggie option was small portion wise but tasty. The main issue was the chicken burger at £10.95- good portions and trimmings but hard to cut as dry. The inn seems to makeba killing on the drinks too with a pint of cider a hefty £3.95. Overall a well run inn just a bit pricey for travellers hit at every stop with a need for profit.

Sorry to hear about your chicken burger - did you tell a member of staff? Our prices are in line - or indeed are cheaper - than other pubs in the area - we're not a chain pub that can offer cut price pints.
