“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Visited on a quiet mid week evening and had an excellent meal. Sat in restaurant (we were the only customers) and found the place to be warm and comfortable. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was excellent. There are many posher restaurants locally and we have tried a couple in the last week whilst on holiday in the area but we found The Anchor to be the best of them all.

“Good food but a bit over-priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

A bit of a gastro-pub so not appealing to the "burger & chips" crowd - go to the Moon & Sixpence for that. Visited this place a few times and it really does depend on which member of the team serves you as to whether you have a good time. One member of staff was incredibly rude to us, she was impatient and did not deal very well with our queries. It has led to us not eating in there anymore but we do go in for the odd drink as we walk by quite often,

“Unexpected excellence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Intially, as it was raining went in to cafe section of the Cafe. It was nearly lunch time and took a peek into the actual pub/dining room and was blown away by the decor and menu that was written on the board at the back of the room. Long story short, EXCELLENT chef, well cooked courses and friendly staff.
One criticism. The Cheeseboard needs a little more cheese.

“Great local food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

Service here is great. The little touches make all the difference, like the homemade potato crisps to eat while you wait for your meal. Yes you pay a little more but it's worth it for the quality of the meal. Good choice of wines and beers and the staff are friendly and chatty.
