Had dinner in the Anvil with five friends. Food was excellent, lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and great service. Only negative comment is that I felt it was a bit pricey.

I had Potted Prawn Cocktail with crispy croutons and skinny chips and friend had Goats cheese Panini with onion, red pepper and a choice of two salads, food was delicious and was followed by a Latte and a Cappuccino. Food here is always top class and the menu for both lunch and dinner is very varied with something to suit... More

We booked a table for 10 last weekend and we couldn't have been happier with the service, the food and our surroundings. No complaints whatsoever about the quality of the produce the restaurant uses and only praise for how it was all prepared. We had pil pil prawns (amazing), steaks (fillet and sirloin) each cooked straight to order and the... More

This place is great for any occasion. IT can be a quick lunch, weekend brunch or some nice dinner. The staff is friendly and make sure that you feel looked after. A little gem of Saggart.

I cannot understand the menu for Sunday lunch. It seems to be the same as the midweek lunch menu, wraps, panini etc. I ordered the beef chilli, the... More

When we arrived the restaurant was very busy, a 50th birthday party was going on down one end and we were seated beside a table of 8 which made for a lively atmosphere. The menu has a lot of Asian themed dishes. We had fishcakes and prawns for starters, the... More
