Stopped off for a pint mid afternoon on a Saturday. Not much choice of ales so had a lager. Staff friendly enough. Big garden.

We popped in for desert after a disappointing main course at another pub. We got there ten minutes before they stopped serving food, but after checking with the kitchen they were happy for us to order. Absolutely delicious chocolate fudge cake and ginger flavoured bakewell tart. Loved the décor too.

Looking forward to a holiday in Blue Anchor bay, we were pleased to read good reviews and were not disappointed. (It was closed on the evening of Father's Day for some reason) However, later in the week we enjoyed a good meal at a fair price, pleasant and helpful service and a good atmosphere amongst the guests. One can imagine... More

We were passing through blue anchor on our way back to minehead and could see this pub from the main road. As they had a large bouncy castle and we had children with us we thought it worth calling in. Very surprised there is a pleasant garden to sit in and the interior is very up to date clean and...
