“lovely country pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Had a lovely Sunday lunch for my mums birthday, the food was great and the service friendly and helpful.
Will be recommending to my friends and family.
The garden and play area is brilliant for families with young children.
The location is lovely and the beer selection was good.
Will definitely eat there again. The dessert menu had a good few choices and were large, well presented portions.

“Food Review”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Have been to the anchor on a few occasions and I'm not sure how they manage it, but the food seems to gets better and better!

Both myself and my fiancé held our engagement party there. With helpful staff and fantastic food, it made for a great day/evening.

Whether you're looking to go with friends, your family, partner or flying solo, I would genuinely recommend to all! Will definitely be back :)

“No Meals”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Had good reports about this place. Called there for a meal last Bank Holiday. Unfortunately They had no Gas. Had to leave hungry
They do have a large garden and a nice play area for the kids.
We will try again.

“Nice for a Change”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Went here with group from work.
Staff very friendly, pub clean and welcoming.
Main course was excellent, very tasty, and loads on plate.
Pudding choice wasnt great hence 4/5 I had the crumble and
although it was a huge bowl it was too much fruit and not enough
crumble. Those that had the chocolate brownie were very dissapointed
Saying it didnt taste that great and was expensive for what it was.
Would go again though.

“Excellent Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Another great Groupon find! We visited for a steak meal on a Sunday lunchtime. Given that the place was really quiet we didn't expect much, but what a lovely surprise. The food was, hot, tasty and fresh and the steaks were the best we've had for ages. The staff were lovely and attentive, and we plan to return soon. The biggest surprise however was given the quality and value of the food here, was that the place was so quiet. We can only assume this is because it is a little off the beaten track??
