This is a charming inn in a lovely village with a pleasant garden. However, chaos rules and ultimately it begins to frustrate and annoy. The breakfast, whilst good, took an hour to serve, because of total lack of organisation. The rooms are small, and for the price you pay, you might expect more creature comforts thrown in. The creatures were... More

It was with some trepidation that we stayed the night over a busy long weekend. Some reviews were disturbing. Yes it is pricey but other than that we very much enjoyed our stay. The new management went out of their way to be helpful and the room was very clean. Breakfast was excellent and very filling. All up a very... More

We stayed here overnight in April, as soon as we walked into our room there was a musty smell which was very strong in the wardrobe. The room looked clean at first but on closer inspection was filthy, the up shade on the light was full of dust, there mirror on the dressing table had finger print marks on it... More

This is a very nice looking Country Pub/Hotel. It was a bit pricey for what you get. We stayed two nights. Very clean and tidy. Walls are a bit thin and the floor boards creak a lot and I mean A LOT! If you want a lay in and the neighbours are up then you won't get much rest. If... More

Easy to find as just off the main road about 20 miles from Salisbury. Large car park, separate hotel entrance. Stairways and rooms are low: take care. Few steps to contend with. Helpful staff and excellent breakfast.

We booked a meal here for 9 people. We live in the village and we have used the pub and eaten here before. However, this is the worst experience we have had at The Anvil. We booked but didn't need to as the whole place was empty (maybe that should have warned us) We were given sheets of paper for... More

Welcoming, refreshing place to stay. Great food and excellent pints of cider, that trickled comfortably don't my throat after a day by the sea at Lulworth Cove. The Anvil is in a very quiet location, when laying in bed not a sound could be heard as for the night sky it was so clear and bright due to the lack... More
