“Meal at the Anchor Hotel, Kippford”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Four of us, after a superb walk around this beautifully area, had a meal around 4pm in this plain but welcoming pub/hotel.
We were concerned that following on from the departure of a 'party' around twenty people the staff and chef would be passed their best but we were not disappointed.
The staff were helpful and friendly and the pub food was delicious. Too much on our plate was our only negative comment!
Just what we had been looking for after our walk.
We'll be back to this venue again.

Peaceful location with views of the bay. Excellent walk to Rockcliffe and on to Sandyhills if feeling energetic. Excellent food, with an obvious good reputation, with no seats available in the bar and lounge after 6pm on the Friday and Saturday. Good beers. Very helpful polite staff

Just returned from a blustery golf tour in the Solway Firth area of Scotland and enjoyed 2 nights of very good hospitality in Kippford's Anchor Inn. We were recommended by a friend who has a holiday home a few miles away and who regularly dines here.
We were a party of 7 golfers.
The bedrooms are far better than we expected and offered exceptional value for money for a pub with accommodation. All the rooms were clean with decor in keeping and had decent views over the river and were well provisioned with tea coffee biscuits, mints, towels, bathroom products etc, showers that were hot and offered a decent flow of water, heating that worked etc etc
One of our party is the owner of a 4 star hotel bar and restaurant and like the rest of us was very impressed with the quality choice and volume of the food served as well as a first class choice of reasonably priced quality wines.
Breakfast was freshly cooked and served with a smile by the very helpful and hard working owner Sharon.
The bar had atmosphere and is clearly popular with the locals. We did notice that all those in the know did not bother with starters such were sizes of the portions!!!
If you are thinking of staying in the area this is the one to beat!!!

We went for a meal at Anchor Hotel whilst staying at Barend Holiday Village. We have enjoyed meals here before on past visits to Barend. I personally enjoyed my meal but my mum had scampi which had obviously been very overcooked. The back room we sat in is not very cosy and is a bit like a school dining room - lots of children and noise. We are unlikely to visit here again for a meal with my mum as she was more disappointed than me. I noticed the family on the next table to us were far from impressed also.

We arrived for a break in Kippford and decided to go to The Anchor Hotel for dinner as there is only 2 places to eat in Kippford. I can honestly say this is the worst ever customer service we have ever had the misfortune to encounter.
The staff were totally rude, unhelpful and looked like working there was the absolute last thing they wanted to be doing in the whole world.
Truly appalling customer service by all staff, especially the chap working there his manners were utterly disgraceful and disrespectful.
Food was average, nothing special at all. Prices totally inflated in relation to quality.
Will never be back or recommend to anyone. Avoid at all costs.
