“Great food and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We ate here for lunch on our way to Pooh Bridge. With 5 adults, four kids (including a 2 week old baby) and a dog they made us feel very welcome. Nice big portions and a good specials board considering it was a Monday lunchtime. It was also nice to see that the kids fish fingers were made with real chunks of fish and not out of a box from the freezer!!

We would definately eat here again if we are in the area, its nice little extras like bringing the drinks to the table for you that makes you remember these little gems.

Enjoyed this pub, friendly, good food and most of all comfy beds! They only have the two bedrooms one double and one twin, breakfast straight forward no frills. We happened to stay on a Friday night which was steak night plus a drink thrown in, good value.

Room Tip: Both good.

I've stayed at The Anchor a handful of times over the years, and the previous time the room had been looking pretty tired. But they've clearly done a lot of work, the room was crisp and fresh, good bathroom, firm comfy bed and lovely and quiet. Breakfast was good too. Recommended.

Didn't stay in the B&B, but used the restaurant and the food was superb. Chef was very accommodating and was keen to recommend dishes based on availability of fresh local produce. Although we didn't stay, the pub is ideally located for Poo Bear country.

A really friendly place with extremely comfortable, clean and pleasant accommodation. We used it as a base for some local walks and enjoyed the informal, attractive surroundings. Unpretentious pub food in large quantities and a substantial breakfast set us up for the day. Easygoing, warm staff made it a very relaxed break.

My wife and I booked to stay here whilst attending our grand-daughter's 3rd birthday party in the next village where they now have 2 children with separate bedrooms so no spare bedroom for us any more. We arrived at around 6pm and meals were being served in the bar so staff were busy but we were welcomed and shown to our room quite quickly. The pub got quite noisy and busy in the evening but we could not hear it in our room at all. The bathroom was quite tiny but the shower in it was quite big with an electric shower that was very efficient. There was a large screen television at the opposite end of the room to the beds with an electric kettle adjacent to it. The tea, coffee and biscuits however were at the other end of the room on a large wooden tray standing on a small table adjacent to 6 coat hooks and 6 hangers which is where we had to hang our clothes as there was no wardrobe. There were plenty of biscuits and a variety of coffees in jars and packets with more than enough small containers of cream and milks to last us for 2 nights, which was as well as no-one came to clear away the used ones or wash up the cups we used ready for the next morning. The only other thing we were mildly surprised about was that no-one changed our towels or re-made the beds ready for the second night.
We were offered a choice of breakfasts and tea and coffee etc in the mornings and had a full English on the first day in which all the food was lovely.
On the second day we started with a cereal and milk but had to ask for replacements as the milk was off, but it was changed immediately. This has not put us off and we shall certainly book here again the next time we visit our family.

Room Tip: We got the one overlooking the garden. It had 2 very comfortable single beds with clean and pressed...

Arrived at the pub, have previously been here before, to have a family meal. Walked in the main bar area to the Restaurant no one came to take any order for drinks or food too busy serving regulars in the bar area it appeared, after 5 mins walked out, lost out on a large food order. Restaurant area looked nicely laid out, pity wont be coming back, and such a nice village location
