Frankly I was surprised to read the recent negative comments, although accept that perceptions are always different. My wife and I ate here twice this week (having been so impressed with the first visit) and we were very pleased. Yes, there are a lot of options on the chalkboard menus, however they appeared to be clearly laid out and not too time consuming to read! We were greeted on entering the bar area, and given plenty of time and advice in making our choices. The food arrived in a reasonable time, given that it is cooked to order. This in our view is a very clean pub serving honest and well cooked quality food. It is not presented as a 'posh' fine dining venue, and this needs to be borne in mind. We found the prices reasonable, and good value given the quality of the food. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We have eaten in many so called fine dining venues and from our experiences this week The Anchor rates very highly among them. We will certainly be returning!
