I met two friends in Newcastle yesterday (13.8.13) and we decided to dine in the Anchor Bar. Bad choice I'm afraid. The place was practically empty, despite the fact that it was lunchtime, and the décor leaves a lot to be desired - tatty upholstery and dirty windows just to mention a couple of off-putting items. We ordered tea and sandwiches - the tea arrived OK, the smaller teapot with a crack, also the milk jug was cracked (don't think it would pass health & hygiene check). There was only brown sugar on the table and when asked for white sugar (for tea) were told that they hadn't any... Unbelievable ....After approx. 5 minutes the waiter appeared with about half a dozen little sachets of sugar which he said 'he went across the road to get it' With hindsight, we should have left the premises and walked round the corner where we could have enjoyed a more appetising snack in a more inviting environment. We paid our bill and left, with the intention of Never Returning or Recommending.
