We live in Woodbridge where there is a lot of restaurant choice but we always eat here. The food is all cooked fresh, menu changes all the time, the staff are great and the atmosphere is relaxed. We have friends who come over once a year from Australia and they always want to go here as well.

I didn't eat here but did have a very nice pint of beer (it's Casque Marque accredited). A very cosy, friendly and welcoming pub with a great atmosphere. The food looked very good and the staff were very friendly. It is just opposite the railway station so handy. With real fires it is a haven on a cold wet evening.... More

Been many times since last review. A winning combination of a cosy pub with an open fire, old-fashioned decor - no plastic , artificial rubbish, no muzak, no slot machines, no tv etc, just very good food and friendly staff and great atmosphere. Try to eat in the bar area by the fire and window. better than the rather gloomy... More

Have been to Woodbridge a lot but decided to get the train this time. As you get off the train you hope after a long journey is a welcome and good grub. If this is what you want walk on. Food is over priced and clearly is outside the skills of the chef. Atmosphere - you not round here sums... More

Visited for a Sunday lunch with the family, following recommendations from friends. On arrival had some concerns regarding our choice (this is a traditional country pub full of locals and regular drinkers). However we were shown to our table by the friendly staff, which was nestled next to a fire in the restaurant part of the pub. What followed was... More

I love this place... and it has its place, in Woodbridge. People and styles have changed over the years, but there's something timeless about The Anchor. If I were coming back to Woodbridge after years away, I'd go there. I did.

I cant comment on the food, although what I saw on other tables looked good. We only had a drink which was fine. I liked the style and character of the pub. Maybe some of the staff could of been a bit warmer on arrival.

Frequenting the anchor on a regular basis I have to say the food is always good; along with the service. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly; as are the locals. The lamb Peshawar curry on Tuesday lunchtime was particularly good, if it's on the menu, give it a go, excellent flavours,better than most curry houses
