Visited here a couple of years ago and was disappointed in beer quality and staff attitude. 2016 - What a change! It was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed a couple of evenings in the great beer garden. Well done Anchor Inn.

We stay at The Anchor for a long weekend every year. The hotel has a fantastic view of the beach and the customer service is excellent. Breakfast has a wide variety of choices that should suit everyone. We highly recommend this hotel.

Went for an evening meal with friends and our children and was very nice, nice ambience and decent food and drink. Went back a couple of days later for breakfast, breakfast was nice in the end but found it a bit dysfunctional with how all our items came out but believe this was down to staff not following instructions correctly...

The Anchor offers you a decent stay, the room was a little small but a high standard of cleanliness and very nice bed and bedding. Breakfast offers a wide range and was very good. The staff are very friendly and the service good. Down side is there is only a small car park next to the pub with a maxim... More

Great garden to sit sipping cider on a summer's evening, overlooking the beach and watching the gulls. Live music on Sunday afternoon was good too. We went for a drink but the food looked so good we decided to eat too and it was delicious, limited vegetarian menu (As usual) but then very fewplaces do cater with a variety for... More

Food reliably good here. It's typical pub grub which is reasonably priced. Great for lunches or everyday meal. It has a great location and outdoor area which is great in good weather. The best part about the pub is the fascinating timeline of local coastline history, top marks for that.
