Whether on a budget, wanting something quick, a family meal or an evening of romance, there’s a meal for everyone all on Holy Island.

Holy Island is located on the western side of Anglesey and is connected by the Stanley Embankment and 4 Mile Bridge, making it easy to access and explore the amazing sites all within walking distance!

Named due to its high concentration of standing stones, burial chambers and other religious sites on the small island.

If mouth-watering restaurant and cafe’s is what you’re pining for, this top 10 restaurants list features some of the finest eateries in the area. So go ahead, collect your appetite and feast your eyes on our top 10 recommended restaurants on Holy Island, Anglesey!


The Deck House

Set within a grade 2 listed farmhouse with an extension that has been recently refurbished to take in the stunning views of Silver Bay and the Llyn Pensinsular beyond.

The Deck House has a classic and contemporary menu suited for individual tastes. Take fresh, carefully selected, seasonal ingredients and creates a delicious and memorable dining experience. If you enjoy a nice, relaxing drink after spending a day on our private beach, The Deck House is the ideal way to wind down and grab your favourite beverage in the perfect setting.

Watch your afternoon slip away without stress; our Busy Bayers keeps your young ones entertained within the close-by lounge area so there’s more time to enjoy your visit at the Deck House. Whether it’s a family day out or a quiet catch up with friends, you can make The Deck House’s lounge whatever you want it to be.

White Eagle


Located near the very southern tip of Holy Island (Holyhead Island) on Anglesey and is just west of Silver Bay beach, the White Eagle is either a 20 minute walk or a five minute drive from Silver Bay.

You’re walking down the beautiful sandy Rhoscolyn beach, breathing in that fresh sea-side air and drinking in the fantastic views of the coastal path. What better way to top it off than resting your weary legs at the White Eagle? You can also bring your furry friends with you too, as the eatery is pet-friendly!

Enjoy the outdoor terrace and soak in the views overlooking the stunning Anglesey coast while enjoying one (or two pints) of their guest ales on draught. There is great food on offer with seasonal menus as well. The White Eagle’s critically acclaimed Steak Pies are to die for, and their home-made fish and chips are amongst customer favourites.

And if that wasn’t enough, indulge yourself in Rhoscolyn history (where the pub is located) which is famous with the patron saint St Gwenfaen. We won’t give too much away though, you’ll have to discover it for yourself!

The Seacroft


Enjoy local food and beer while retreating in the warm glow of a roaring open fire, The Seacroft provides the perfect resting place for the whole family. Stocked to the brim with universally loved Timothy Taylor’s ale, you may hear an adventurous tale or two echoing from the barstools at the front of house.

On the menu, locally sourced ingredients from Anglesey suppliers means that you get the freshest and most tastiest meals on offer. Oh, and if you’re around the Anglesey area in winter, The Seacroft offers a ‘buy one, get one free’ deal on most dishes. The Seacroft steals the show on making number 2 on our top 10 restaurants in Anglesey!


The Harbourfront Bistro

Just as the name suggests, the Harbourfront lies on on the idyllic Newry Beach of Holyhead. A hidden gem, this bistro is a family run business with family-orientated values; bring the kids down for a scrumptious meal or simply enjoy the picturesque scenery of the sunset disappearing over the horizon.

There’s something for everyone at the Harbourfront Bistro, its perfect location and contemporary British cuisine ensures that this eatery features on our top 10 recommended restaurants!
