The menu looked very attractive so we ordered a meal and drinks. The bar was full so we sat in a lean to conservatory which was quiet but lacked “atmosphere”. The beer was excellent but the food disappointing.

Visited this place on a Bank Holiday Monday. I walked into the bar and noticed there were no customers and the decor was dismal. I asked the barmaid if they were serving breakfast. She called out to the 'cook' who then went into pointless rant. What a rude woman she was. She stated ' what is wrong with people - can't they read the sign - we only do breakfasts Friday, Saturday and Sundays - that's the second person in today wanting breakfast'. So I left wondering why she was actually there, if not to serve customers. Now I know why this pub was empty on a Bank Holiday when the cafe across the road was bursting at the seams with customers. To summarise, I would not recommend this place to anyone.

We have been to The Anglers Retreat many times and have always enjoyed a lovely, home cooked meal with plenty of your five a day vegetables - actually, you get seven different varieties on one plate!

Staff are very friendly, but the decor leaves much to be desired, but this does not deter us because the food is so good.

Brilliant pub run by Jane and Pauline with some great Real Ales and some of the best home cooked food you can get anywhere.(dont tell me mum) If Cheers is the best way for Americans to show what a bar should be like then get down the Anglers Retreat to see what a proper British pub shpould be like.

The staff are friendly and food is acceptable (even though I have seen some questionable health and safety issues, window left open with a pile of jacket potatoes next to it and a bottle of cleaner leaning on them!) Although this was a while ago it may have changed now. Friendly staff, but decor makes me feel like I'm in an old auntie's conservatory, very strange. Overall it's ok.
