“Big thank you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Apart from the great service and food, I would like to thank the owner, who was incredibly helpful when I had lost my phone charger and allowed me to use his. This might sound a small deal but when you have lost your charger and for personal reasons need to be in regular contact with the UK it is very helpful!

The service from all the staff was friendly and the breakfasts were great. Also, good local and British beer too.

“Great service go that star mile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

have eaten here a couple of times over the year and went back yesterday, fab garlic mushrooms,!! My daughter 4yrs old was treated like royalty...they gave her a couple of games and cards to play with which helped for a nice leisurely meal, would recommend it.

“Excellent ... apart from Lorraine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I are just back from lanzarote. We went to the anchor a good few times during our visit for breakfast and evening meals. The service and food were excellent all of times apart from a few mornings ago! We went for breakfast and were served by a woman called Lorraine. She was so rude and obnoxious to us that we just couldn't stop thinking about it all day! There was absolutely no need for her shortness with us. We will return to the anchor but definitely NOT if we saw Lorraine was on duty!

“TRY THE FISH N CHIPS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Great place to eat and be entertained...Food was tasty and if you get a chance try the fish n chips.... fish is in the crispiest batter ever and the size of them is unreal, delicious breakfasts also....never had a bad meal in all the time i was in there .Entertainment at nights is an added bonus....pig racing on fridays was a great laugh, and elvis is a must see..At least 6 tvs in this bar means you wont miss any football while on holiday.....run by a lovely couple with a great team of staff...will visit again for sure
