We held a large gathering here recently to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday and had a fantastic day. Great setting, delicious food and Richard and the rest of the staff were brilliant. Highly recommend this venue for a get together, special occasion or anything else you fancy!

This pub is great for a small typical English pub. It has a large outdoor beer garden which is lovely in the summer. The inside area is quite small however has a big fire place and sofas to relax in. The staff are always very friendly with quick service. There is usually always a table free in there to sit... More

The service was quick and the staff were very friendly. Great atmosphere in the garden, i felt very relaxed and comfortable. Planning another trip there with the girls... More

Came with Biz colleague Menu changed completely Plenty of food intolerance info except nothing for lactose intolerant customers - and many others so ended up with a staggeringly depressing dry chicken with soggy sliced bread toast described as something completely exotic. Something has changed. Gone is the great menu. Replaced by mediocre food that my colleague (who also didn't eat... More

Dear uk-us-punter, thank you for taking the time to provide your first review on Trip Advisor. We are obviously disappointed that you feel your experience at the Blue Anchor was less that satisfactory which we feel was mainly down to your decision not inform us of your particular set of intolerances. Having discussed your comments with our Chef Paul and... More

Went out for lunch with colleagues on a sunny August day. The large beer garden is really nice and there's plenty of space for parties of all sizes. Good selection of beers available and the burger that I had was also very nice (and sizeable!) Service was slightly slow, but understandably so as it was quite busy, hence only 4... More

lovely staff, good food, nice audience and a lovely garden overlooking the cricket plan. A generous section of beers and decent prices. All food is made very fresh

For some reason despite living in the Reigate area for eight years this remains the only pub I hadn't visited. Putting that right on a Saturday afternoon I have to say I was well impressed. The pub itself is a nice old building with plenty of character but where it wins hands down is the beer garden. Easily the best... More

We went for a quick lunch at the Blue Anchor. It was a Saturday and they only had specials on and a BBQ menu, which was fine since we wanted to sit out in the garden anyway which was nice and had a good view of the cricket green. The staff were a bit slow when I went to order... More

I've always loved this pub. It's nothing special or unusual but as pubs go, this one gives you everything you want. Yummy classic pub food, affordable drinks, nice welcoming staff, warm and cosy atmosphere. The only downside is parking but that's just something you have to accept when you come to Reigate!
