“Good Pub Grub”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

I've been here 4 times. On each visit the food has been very good. It is pub grub, but very good pub grub. Their steaks ate excellent value. The Landlady is very friendly and chatty. The dogs Piggy and Wiggy are great fun, Wiggy is the bouncy one. I recommend The Anchor to anyone

“Really tasty food”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Food was scrummy, and there was plenty of it. Which meant was unable to partake from the dessert menu, which was a shame as they looked luscious. Look out for Tigger the bouncing dog behind the bar

“A Good Choice”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

On a day out with family we chanced upon the Anchor Inn.
We decided to pop in for a meal and did not regret our choice.
The food was well prepared, good portions and very tasty.
My Brother in Law had a Rib Eye Steak, which he said was one of the best
he had tasted, cooked to perfection.
The service we received was very good and the staff pleasant.
The pub itself is old world in style, which we liked.
Suffice to say, if we are ever in the area again we will call in for a meal.

“Excellent value for money and great food”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We had not been to The Anchor for some months but we were welcomed back as if it were just yesterday. The daily specials board that supplements the menu had some traditional fare as well as more unusual things like a Mongolian chicken and pork curry with coconut rice.
The pie of the day was a homemade suet steak and kidney pudding - it can served with great chips and peas and we had a side order of veg. These were red cabbage, broccoli and carrot.
The portions are epic and we fortunately remembered and did not have starters. We only managed to have a shared pudding.
Good real ale - Hop Circle was on.
They should be full all the time and we will certainly be back soon
