We had a great time one the evening that we visited the staff were friendly and the food and beer was great at a reasonable price. Breathtaking views and my kids loved it in the garden. I Would recommend this place and will be visiting again.

Currently under a major refurb with new management, and they are certainly on the right track. Stopped by for an evening meal, and really impressed with the food. Tasty, beautifully presented and plentiful. The staff were friendly and helpful. The weather was good, so we were lucky to be able to sit out in the garden to eat and watch... More

Good real ales on tap to keep the hubby happy, a trampoline for the kids and deck chairs in the garden with the most amazing view of the sea over to Minehead made this... More

Staying nearby and visited. Under new management sign attracted us and we weren't disappointed. Easy parking in the car park and lovely beer garden overlooking the bay. Food , beer and service very good. Excellent value for money. Children and dogs welcome.

Stopped by on saturday morning for breakfast as the hotel is now under new ownership. Wow! What a difference to the place! Clean, tidy, freshly decorated and very friendly staff.. Food was fantastic, all freshly grilled, and there was too much to eat, will definitely be returning and trying the evening menu. Keep up the hard work and well done!!

Stopped using this place a year ago due to bad beer, service, hygiene, attitude and personnel. Saw new management signs and thought give it another chance. Well, with a bit of hard work things can change. Nice pint, clean , friendly sober, uniformed staff on the right side of the bar. The food coming out looked fresh and well presented,... More

We were passing through and noticed a board outside stating they were under new management this in most cases is a good sign as they are usually trying that bit harder. I ordered Ham Egg and Chips and Fish and Chips at the bar, my wife went to find a table in the garden, I then ordered drinks, I took... More

Had a booking to go, but cancelled with no reason, with very little time to arrange another date. Awful professionalism. But since reading other reviews, looks like I might of dodged a bullet. Many poor comments. Just had a email saying it's not going ahead, no phone call or a sorry, from any actual person. Booked it almost 8 months... More

Hi there, We are new owners at the Blue Anchor. If you read the previous reviews cancelling all the booking was the only thing to do. It took a while to get to grips with what had been booked, although we have now got a list of phone numbers and we are trying to work our way through them. We... More

We live in Malvern and I haven't been back to Minehead for a long time. We took our two Beagles with us and found a Gem of a place called the Blue Anchor. The landlord and the staff were great people who couldn't do enough for you. The locals were fantastic and made you feel very welcome. The food was... More
