“HUGE portions!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

If you have a big appetite then this is the place for you as the portions were enormous! A little bland - standard pub fare, and impossible to find something without carbs.

We visited last night and it was a great pub. Staff were really friendly, it was warm, cosy and we had a lovely steak, cooked perfectly.

“Consistent Quality Food an Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

I go to this pub a lot, the food is great, the beer is great and the staff are brilliant. This pub should be a blueprint of how to run a pub properly, with everything running like clockwork. On our last visit my meal was cooked from scratch, so a slight delay. I was offered a complimentary drink or dessert because of he delay. In fact I didn't accept either but what a great gesture.

“Rude service, disappointing food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We visited in December and were very disappointed with the attitude of a young female member of staff. The food was less than average and upon complaint were told we should have specified how we wanted it cooked - surely if they are going to cook it in more than one way they should ask the customer! They took the meal away to properly cook the meat course and shoved the whole plate in the oven, turning the vegetables into concrete. We complained and were not charged for the meal but we had to ask - it was not offered. Its worth noting Complimentary teas and coffees were provided. Overall a disappointing experience.

We chose to have lunch in The Anchor on our first day and were so impressed we returned for the following 2 days of our stay in Sidmouth.
