The anchor itself its a beautifully decorated establishment, the main bar being a good old fashioned pub, full or mahogany and brass and in winter, cosy log fires. The new skippers bar and restaurant next door has recently been refurbished and is extremely modern with its silver and purple colour scheme and underlighting, perfect as is turns into a nightclub at night. I personally eat in at lunchtimes, in the main bar, for a real pub lunch feel. Food has always been tasty and portions just right. Service can vary, some people need to smile more while others such as chris, geoffrey and gardiner are great. If dining in evening, be aware this is not the place to dine late as it fairly fills up with drinkers and music starts early. Also, depending on time of year and which locals are about, you can be met with some people a bit worse for wear, though it is a pub after all, to avoid this go to skippers next door :)
