Visited for lunch recently with my wife, having been here for dinner many times. Love the contrast between the snug and very old beamed bar area to the more open and spacious restaurant to the garden area with open views of the country. Food is excellent quality with a varied menu offering 6-7 starters and main courses followed by pudding.... More

The meal was lovely and could not fault it really, however felt a bit let down by the atmosphere. There were some people eating outside and some inside. Outside needed a more homely feel e.g. cushions, flowers on table, maybe some music and definitely more light. Towards the end of the evening we all huddled around one candle and then... More

Stayed overnight while on business locally. Very hot evening, so ate outside with business colleagues. Food very good but service very patchy and our drinks took ages to arrive, as did the opportunity to order and subsequent drinks ordered were forgotten for a while. The food was very good, however, and worth waiting for. I suspect this is a busy... More

Fabulous quaint quirky Inn. Lots of interesting pictures & lovely traditional decor. We stayed for 2 nights playing golf in the area and had a fabulous stay at the Anchor. We ate in for 2 evenings and had a marvellous gourmet dinner both nights. Staff were considerate & attentive. Lovely rooms. Lovely Breakfasts. Can highly recommend staying here. If your... More

Had heard a lot about this restaurant and possible weekend away spot. Arrived for a meal with drinks first. Initially bar person advised that not all bottled beers were there and in fact selection very limiting. Surprisingly urban style finishes to garden area with no atmosphere. Restaurant was more like a school dining room. True a style but in no... More

We have always rated the Anchor as one of a the best eating spots near Farnham so today was a huge disappointment. The waitress dropped a glass of prosecco on me but was very apologetic and that can happen to anyone. Things, sadly, went from unpromising to bad. My son ordered the tenderloin of beef at almost £26 ... He... More

My girlfriend and I visited this pub after a walk in the countryside. I had passed it on several occasions and it had always caught my eye so decided to give it a go. Upon arrival we spotted that it had been awarded "Hampshire Pub of the Year" along with a 5 star AA rating. Needless to say we thought... More

Our group of 8 garden lovers came here for a refueling stop on our day of touring gardens. We ordered ahead as we did nt have much time: the tomato soup followed by foccaccias with side orders of chips and greens. It was all freshly prepared and promptly served. Our waitress was very attentive. The service was efficient. The decor... More

We were delayed in our journey to the Anchor arriving 5 minutes before they stopped serving food but nothing was too much trouble. They were welcoming, friendly and the food was absolutely amazing (even though I am sure the chef must have been cursing us turning up so late). I chose chicken with lemon and thyme, which was beautifully presented... More

As ever, I used my trusty Michelin Guide for good food in Pubs. I was certainly NOT disappointed but whilst every dish was delicious, if I was highly critical, I considered each dish one pound overpriced for a pub atmosphere. I had the wild mushrooms with crinkly hen's egg to start. Delicious but a few more mushrooms would have fulfilled... More
