Roughly a year ago, we had a great meal there where beer battered haddock was accompanied by triple cooked chips in duck fat, the ploughman's lunch had nice touches that made me envy the person that ordered it, desserts could be ordered with two spoons as they were very decadent! Returning recently there are little details that I've seen in... More

I have been to The Anchor a few times over the last three years, and recommended it to my parents. Previous visits have always been enjoyable, and the food well worth going for, so my mum decided to book a table for Sunday lunch for her birthday. We should have known when we arrived and they had no knowledge of... More

My wife and I chose the hottest April day for 4 years to visit The Anchor Inn at Lower Froyle, but it was worth it! Having picked up a Lunchtime Menu from the bar we found a table in the paved garden area where we could keep at least our heads in the shade. The vista from here is delightful... More

This is a lovely place to go for a special meal, it can be fully booked even mid week so book ahead to avoid disappointment. The food is very tasty and the staff great. Its also has a nice selection of beers. The garden is also nice in the summer

This place is fantastic, the food is delicious. We ordered roast beef & roast chicken which were both lovely. Dessert was good, the cheeseboard well presented & chocolate brownie to die for. The only thing I did not like was the fact they did not have any baby changing facility which you would expect given its a family pub/restaurant, they... More

We had a lovely stay at the hotel. We arrived for dinner very late and the staff were incredibly accommodating especially the chef who stayed back late to cook for us. The food was excellent and the portions very generous. I stayed in the Richard Hillary room, which was exceptional, very clean with a lovely comfy bed. I am looking... More

I wish there was a "good" option here rather than "very good" as I would have used it. We had a good lunch here recently, not very good. I thought that the starters were very small for £8 or so. The bread was delicious & my main course tasty although two of our party had chips & were not overly... More

My family and I ate here recently for a family birthday celebration. I found the menu very limiting, there was not much on it that we liked the sound of. Most of us had steak for main, the actual steak (rump) was particularly good quality and cooked well, every one really enjoyed it, but the triple cooked chips were really... More
