My husband & I had our wedding here last July & it was simply fantastic. Amazing staff & beautiful setting. Couldn't have asked for better. Thank you all at the Anchor Inn for making our day so special. We will be returning on our anniversary & hope to see all the same happy faces!

I've been here twice for a stroll along the river and a pub lunch. There's a pretty garden beside the river and you can hire a rowing boat from the pub. I've only had the roast dinners but they were huge portions and very yummy. Standard pub prices.

Had a great walk from barcombe to the anchor inn. The setting is amazing. Really disappointed that they weren't taking food orders as they had a huge back log. We ate them out of crisps and peanuts instead. Went to the rainbow inn which was really good. I would book if you are going there as those who booked were... More

Went last Sunday and thought that this food pub might be a pub that sold food. I was mistaken as apparently that had entirely run out of food. I sat outside and had a coffee and every single table was covered in dirty glasses and plates from that time in the distant past when they did have food. A really... More

This place seems to get 5 or 1 stars on other reviews. We read the reviews and hoped to get lucky - but on this occasion our toast landed jam side down... Turned up for a morning's boating, which was fine, and returned at noon and were second to order food. We sat close to the bar and waited...and waited....and... More

Had to send food back as was not even warm let alone hot! Agree with dan m... Overpriced considering it is re heated food and they couldn't even re heat it! Quite dangerous really not reheating meat until piping hot (even cold food for example, the ham looked like it had been sitting around for a while, fatty and warm)... More

Food is microwaved and over priced. Service terrible. Rooms average there are much nicer better value places to stay locally. Landlord is a prat and that's being pleasant. I will never return or do business with this man again. AVOID!

Visited the anchor inn in barcombe last Sunday for a day of boating and lunch. We had high expectations after being told about the place by friends, but were a little concerned that we would have to wait for food and boats considering how busy it was. However we cannot fault the place after receiving our food in under half... More
