A comfortable stay, the rooms were nicely decorated and the facilities good. The tea and coffee making facilities included a cafetière and fresh coffee, plus a good selection of fruit teas, traditional tea and sachets of hot chocolate. The room and bathroom were clean with good quality towels. The staff were welcoming and friendly.

Once we had showered and walked out we found that all the tourists... More

The fish was cooked perfectly and melted in the mouth and the batter was not at all greasy. On our second visit,... More

We enjoyed 2 nights at The Crown and Anchor. We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was clean and comfortable. The food was lovely.....my husband was very delighted as gluten free food was available.....especially fish and chips!!!!
