We arrived at the anchor for a family meal.2 adults and our 2 daughters aged 12 and 15.it was 5.30 on a Monday so it was fairly quiet.there were several men drinking and staying in the inn as there is a well known golfcourse in the area.I found the main menu for my 2 daughters didn't suit so we checked the children's menu which was extremely limited.our 12 year old ordered off this menu and my 15 year old ordered fish and chips off the main menu.we ordered a starter and main each.when it arrived my starter was slightly warm(luckily I don't like red hot food).our mains were fine.we had several drinks.the male member of staff did nothing but mess with the computer.a female member came in later and he came to life.the restaurant area wad having some work done and there was a curtain partitioning it off.the male member of staff went behind the curtain with this female and was playing with a soft toy(Elmo) which talked.what he didn't realise was you can see through the curtain.we paid our bill and left.the carpark is very dark in the evening.it is a lovely pub/b&b in a gorgeous location but the male member of staff could smile a bit more and would probably benefit from some hospitality training.the food is good.
