“Uninviting, poor experience when looking for evening pub meal”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Arrived at the pub, have previously been here before, to have a family meal. Walked in the main bar area to the Restaurant no one came to take any order for drinks or food too busy serving regulars in the bar area it appeared, after 5 mins walked out, lost out on a large food order. Restaurant area looked nicely laid out, pity wont be coming back, and such a nice village location

Thank you for a great short stay, a shame it was not longer, The staff were very friendly and the food was good. Beer was just right and gave me a good nights sleep :-)

A lovely traditional pub & B&B serving decilious food at reasonable prices. Beautiful, comfortable and spacious B&B too just above the pub. The breaksfast is second to none.

I fully recommend this pub for the atmosphere, food and friendly staff. It also has regular live music nights, weekly quizzes and themed food nights. The free wifi is very handy.

A good selection of beers and wines and even a chilli-vodka! (not for the faint-hearted!).

Thanks to the staff at The Anchor Inn for a great night and comfotable stay. We'll be back!

We had lunch on New Year's eve, and it was excellent. A smiling welcome, efficient service and well flavoured home made soup with fresh hot bread.

I stayed a couple of days at the Anchor and had an excellent time. The room and bathroom were spotless and the bed was very comfortable with a thick duvet. Only the window could use a net curtain. It would give you just that little bit of extra privacy. The staff are very professional and the food is very good. The bowl of mussels was enormous. The Anchor has a big dining room and could easily serve a busload of people. The manager James was very friendly and helpful , telling me about the walking tracks in these beautiful surroundings. I will definitely come back someday.

We stayed at The Anchor whilst golfing nearby. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, the food was good and home cooked to order including the breakfasts - the portion of prawns was the biggest I've ever seen! The room was spacious and clean with plenty of toiletries and tea and coffee. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have slept in at a hotel anywhere in the UK. Thoroughly recommended.
