This place has so much potential and is just going to waste. We were staying at a lodge nearby and the Blue Anchor was the only pub in walking distance. We went in at 8.40 (they are meant to serve till 9) so we quickly chose and went to the bar to order. The man taking the order quickly said... More

The view from the garden is amazing a real tourism attraction, unfortunately the attraction stops there.we went for lunch (family of 6 adults and a child) We ventured into the garden where the view was interrupted by a large rundown partially deflated bouncy castle ( health and safety would not be impressed). My daughters went to order our drinks and... More

The hotel is in a fantastic position, on the edge of cliff overlooking Blue Anchor Bay close to Watchet and the Steam Railway. It is sadly rather fraying round the edges, (a bit like us), but really very good value for a basic B & B pub with a typical bar menu for the evenings. Again the comment saying it... More

We were staying at Horborne Blue Anchor when my parents decided to come down for a few days, having nowhere booked to stay they called at the Blue Anchor Hotel and thought it couldn't be as bad inside as it looked from the outside - It was worse. They asked if they could look at the rooms, one £65.00 a... More

We visited with friends one evening are were taken aback by the lack of cleanliness in the bar area. We did not order food as the dinners we saw looked very unappetising and several people had dogs in the dining area.The waitress appeared very friendly, although the Landlord needs a course in customer relations. not worth the visit.

I stopped at this pub for an early evening meal with my family, after my children spotted the Bouncy Castle and trampoline in Beer Garden. While the garden itself was quite nice, perched on top of a cliff and enjoying a sweeping view of the beach, the pub itself was extremely dated. Stuck in a 1970s time warp, id argue... More

Its in such a good spot and you would expect it to be a really nice country inn but it's not. we parked in the overgrown car park and there was no direct access from the car park which is unusual and the only way was down the invisible from the car park dangerous stone steps. when we got to...

Been before, so knew was ok. Tidy menu, with specials / lunch time deals. Food was good - proper pub food. Nothing fancy, just good grub, good service, nice place to put feet up after a walk along beach.

We stopped for our evening dinner. Monday is pie night and I had Steak and Kidney. I found it really yummy and if you love kidneys it had loads! They also had red stripe beer on tap! The place is a bit tired but it's open as most pubs these days are closing!

This place is a superb location and having been here as a youngster I am really disappointed that it has been run down so much. The place is untidy and scruffy. The only reasonable thing is the food and is only reasonable. The staff could do with pulling their socks up and smile at their clients or they won't have... More
