We ordered Prosseco,, they only had the more expensive one available. We ordered food. It was thrown onto the table. The plates were cold. The bar person did not smile once, or ask if everything was to our satisfaction. We were out for a birthday lunch. Ages between 45 -55. We had some pitchers of cocktail to then be told... More

We booked this venue as it's been a local for my family for over 25yrs. Trying to book it was a distressing experience as no one ever returned my calls or could answer questions. In fact no one knew what they were doing, we even had to pay for the entertainment ourselves even though they have a DJ every Friday... More

We have eaten in many Greene King venues and in general had an enjoyable meal. We tried here very early and we're the only people in the pub. The Manager was most friendly and helped me with my disabled Wife. I ordered Lasagna whilst my Wife had Chicken. Food arrived promptly and was very nice. I think main problem here... More

This has got to be a first, we went to his place at 10pm on a Saturday night only to be told we can't serve you as we have been told by the area manager Steve Parry to close as we are so quiet. Green King what on earth are you trying to do to this pub ? Apparently this... More

Had a monthly meet up with my sisters,aunt & nieces & decided to visit the Anchor &Hope as our normal Restuarant/pub had a gas leak. When we arrived at 11.50 am we was told they are not open till 12.30 as the food delivery was late arriving, so we decided to wait. Wish we hadn't, & wont be going back.... More

Right. We went here December 2016 for a Christmas meal and it was okay. With a 25% off voucher the same group of friends visited today 26/1/17. Summary - don't use this place if you want even a slightly decent meal. It's no good. Reasons: (1) no milk for any drink - someone had to go shopping for milk or... More

We used the pub as the destination for my mother's wake for 60 people. From start to finish, nothing was a problem including setting up a private area in the open plan pub, allowing photographs to be played on a projector screen as well as our own music. The hot and cold buffet was very well received, and the bar... More

Took my elderly parents here for what should have been a lovely lunch treat. The coffees were served without saucers - apparently the cups don't fit! They were meant to be cappuccino but were more like filter coffees. The soup took 30 mins to arrive and both were sent back as cold. When they were brought back to us we... More

We visited in early December and unfortunately the manager had walked out the day before leaving the team leader Sharon to cope with the food and staff shortages which she managed fairly well. The food arrived after an eternity and more than one reminder. Free drinks and desserts were offered by way of an apology, but this pub is part... More
