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

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
