“Nice setting and that's all she wrote.”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

First appearance lovely sea view with ceiling fairy lights, menu disappointing, at 5:30 pm already certain items on menu not available but no mention when handing the menus out, drink prices high, food prices very high for standard pub grub.
A very average eating experience at a very high price, disappointing.

“Amazing Welsh Black Steak!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Great for people who really enjoy their steak! The welsh black steaks I have enjoyed here over several visits to Barmouth, they are beautifully cooked and served with chips and side salad garnish. Highly recommended. "Miller and Carter" quality steak in Barmouth.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

I ordered the Tortellini in a blue Stilton sauce. It was lovely, and the portion size was just right. The best meal I've had out in a long time. If I'm ever in the area again, I will go back.

“good food”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

The fish pie was delicious. So full of seafood, and it came with veg and chips!! Too much really, but worth every penny. Also we had the chicken burger which was good, and big enough that you didn't need fries. We also had the pasta in a rocket pesto which looked so good. Prices were very reasonable. Will eat there if I ever go that way again. The decorations were quirky but effective. Staff excellent.

“Lovely food!”

My husband, my three year old and I had dinner at the Anchor twice whilst staying in the area. All I can say is I can't wait to eat there again. Lovely food, setting and staff. Highly recommend.
