Me and my partner needed a break outside of London and this was perfect. A mere hour and 15 out of London the anchor inn is an easy and quick retreat. When we arrived the staff were really accommodating and our room was gorgeous. What I like the most was the personal touches, milk already in the mini bar for... More

This beautiful country inn is the perfect combination of a warm welcome and a comfortable room when you come in from the rain. The cherry on top is the excellent food in the downstairs restaurant - where they knew the changing menu very well and were happy to make accommodations and substitutions for my annoying gluten-intolerance. Breakfast in the morning... More

The old pub has traditional low ceilings and wood fires and the extended area and garden offer a very pleasant restaurant with a varied menu of well cooked and presented food. Staff are competent a d friendly. We stayed for the night... More

Stayed overnight at The Anchor Inn for a works Christmas party. The pub is in the middle of the country and retains a lovely original feel, and walking through the door is like stepping back in time. Be warned though, the ceilings are very low throughout, so a lot of hunching will be required! The food was fantastic, one of... More

We've just returned from spending one night at The Anchor following our daughter's wedding there on Monday. We had exclusive use of the inn for the wedding ceremony followed by afternoon tea for 36 then an evening party with buffet for 80ish. The food was absolutely fantastic (home-made bread sandwiches, cakes, etc) whilst the service was excellent. Amy the manageress... More

We were a family party of seven including children. The pub is quirky with plenty of interest, well worth wandering round to investigate every nook and cranny. Two roaring log fires are very welcoming but, unfortunately with children and the size of our group, we couldn't eat in either of those rooms. The dining room had rugs draped over the... More

Really enjoyed the ale and the pub itself is incredibly comfortable and very cosy. The... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Anchor Inn on Saturday night. We had such a lovely evening, the pub is so cosy with roaring fireplaces and candles. We stayed in the Siegfried Sassoon which was perfect for us. The bed was very comfortable and the tea and delicious flapjacks to welcome us in our room were greatly appreciated. The... More

This is a great venue in a fantastic setting. It oozes cosy charm and the staff ensure that guests are well looked after. There is a great selection of drinks and the food menu is very impressive. Pop in on a crisp winters day!
