Great reception when we arrived , the bar staff were excellent, the meals were brilliant and a perfect serve size, all very fresh ingredients. Very comfortable place with no stress. As a visitor from Australia this is a must do when in the area. Thanks for a top experience.

We received a very warm welcome from the staff, who were accommodating at all times. Despite being over the pub the rooms were very quiet. Although small, our room was very comfortable, particularly the snuggly, soft duvet. The food was excellent, all home cooked, fresh ingredients and we spent several minutes salivating over the menu. Breakfast was lovely.

Stopped for a morning coffee, and all ended up having hot chocolate ! It was the best we'd had in a long time, hot, chocolaty and not too sweet. Served with a shortbread biscuit too. The place is abit scruffy/old fashioned, pvc tablecloths, cutlery in paper napkins left on the tables and not too clean, but it looks like the... More

We went for the Thursday curry night. The curries were great and good value at £8 for a curry and drink. We also had puddings from the main menu which were good. The staff were very pleasant and the pub had a lovely traditional feel to it. We were staying in a cottage at Seagreens so had a fabulous walk... More

We stayed there on Friday 3rd April as part of a Car Owners Club group that was doing a 'Coast to Coast' run the following day. It is a lovely traditional hotel/pub that does really great seafood. We had people staying in the Hotel flat and cottage but we stayed in one of the rooms upstairs in the hotel itself.... More

I took my son Ronan to see Donnie Munro at Montrose. We stayed 2 nights at the Anchor Hotel in the picturesque village of Johnshaven, it is a family-run business boasting 2 chefs who specialise in local fresh fish. The staff were brilliant and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was newly refurbished and very comfortable and... More

We were staying at Puffin Cottage for three nights and we ate at the Anchor for two of those...wandered along with the dog (who was made very welcome with a bowl of water and some dog biscuits), and were delighted to see that this was Curry Night at the Anchor. Fabulous value for money with your curry and a drink... More

You can rely on getting exceptional food - with the fish especially whether it is haddock , sea bass , lemon sole etc.The specials are on blackboards round the bar and normally include fish stew , lobster , monkfish scampi...

We stayed here as we were attending a party in the village hall. We had a brilliant stay, the staff were very attentive and could not do enough for us! We ate in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast and were totally satisfied with our meals. The breakfast was especially brilliant. We'd definitely recommend The Anchor.
