I stayed here on a Sunday night after attending a wedding at Froyle Park. The staff were lovely and upgraded us to the best suite at the inn as there weren't people occupying it. The room was lovely and large with a very comfortable bed. The shower was great. Breakfast the next morning was very yummy and we both ordered... More

Been here a couple of times before and the food and service have always been up to standard. Went for Sunday lunch with the family recently and the food was not so good and the service a disaster. They were clearly understaffed but tried their best to cope. I'm not going to list all that was wrong, but a couple... More

As well as a good restaurant this used to be a really good location for decent ales, especially from the triple f brewery in Alton, a great brewing town. Since being sold the pub seems to have moved to Marston's which would be fine if they used all three taps but recently there only seems to have been one ale... More

A rare 5 star review from me. Charming old pub where rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Sensibly priced for the quality and friendly and helpful staff. Beds and fittings generally were good quality and breakfast first class and well presented. Thanks and well done. Watty

We stayed at the Anchor Inn for a wedding taking place nearby. It was wonderful and we only wish we’d stayed longer. Before the wedding, we had lunch in the restaurant, which was superb. Both the bread and soup were homemade. The room was delightful, with tea and coffee making facilities and a comfy bed. The bathroom was modern and... More

I have eaten here on a number of occasions, but this time really stood out for me. The service was attentive but not in your face, the front of house team worked really well never once failing to be assertive about the menu and drinks. My past visits where with the old owners, however the new landlord really knows what... More

Quintessentially English, a truly cute bar area with VERY low beams, open fires and locally sourced ales. There's also a restaurant area if you're not looking to eat in the bar area although during the week, it's pretty empty. The food is high end on the price side of things which for some I imagine would be a turn off,... More

We have been visiting this pub for a long time, but after a disappointing lunch, won't be returning soon. The service was sporadic and slow, which was frustrating. I had ordered the steak and ale pie, but this was warm at best. They rectified the situation by returning the pie after microwaving it! Another person in our party ordered a... More
