The food in the pub is excellent. Almost all locally raised and grown for locavores out there. Delicious.The owners, barkeeps, etc. very friendly. I highly recommend this country pub and inn for anyone driving through Somerset, staying near Taunton, etc. Or biking. It's right on cycling route. If you're not staying overnight, make plans to eat lunch or dinner at...

I paid £60 for a double room, for one night. Booked through Laterooms. Payment for room was taken at time of booking. Good points: The pub is great. Lovely food, good choice on the menu, good portions, good value. Locals are really friendly. I'd be happy with this as my local! Oh, just one thing re food - I ordered...

Although I was called back to work due to an emergency and we had to leave a day early we felt let down by the standard of the facilities. 1 the shower was (after 10mins) just a warm dribble. 2 the free wifi was indeed free but definitely wasn't wifi as all it would say was network error, my laptop...

We spent one night here on our way to Cornwall. The rooms are in a motel style block at the rear of the pub, and are clean, comfortable and quiet. The welcome tray was well equipped. We were made to feel very welcome in the pub and had an excellent bar meal in the evening. One very small criticism: we...

I was amazed at the disparity between the reviews and my own experience. OK, its a nice country pub that does food and rooms but certainly nothing special. Evening meal was OK but a little overpriced. Room was cold. I arrived late and the heating was off and stayed off untill 7.00am Beds were very poor quality. Breakfast was hearty...

I have stayed here on a few occasions, on my own and with family and friends. The staff were very welcoming and the food was lovely, proper country style food, non of that microwave rubbish, strongly recomend the pies, also had a great night sleep. I will definitely be back.

I took three business visitors to the Anchor for a few pints and a meal. Everyone agreed that the food, drink, service and ambience were excellent. Proper pub food (not trying to be a restaurant!) and local ales, a simple recipe that works. We will be back.

Very nice pub with friendly staff which quickly filled up for luncheon; I'm glad we arrived early at 12:00. (This was a doubly good sign as you're unlikely to stumble across this pub by accident so most of the clientele must have been on a return visit). The food was excellent, in particular the turkey, leek and gammon pie served...

My wife and I stayed at the Anchor Inn for 3 nights. Its a very good base for exploring Somerset and Devon.We were made to feel very welcome and at home by all the staff. There is a very homely feel about the place and you are treated like an old friend. The room was very nice and comfortable and...
