“Imaginative vegetarian choices.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

Stayed just one night in Tarbert as part of our Commonwealth Games visit to Scotland. As one of us is vegetarian the several fish restaurants along the quay didn't hit the spot. Then we found the Anchorage - don't miss it as it has a really narrow street frontage. We were delighted by the fact that the small menu contained two imaginative vegetarian dishes. Both the starters and main courses were beautifully presented and delicious. We would happily go there again and again.

We would make one small suggestion and that is that they offer wine by the glass in addition to Chardonnay.

“Skilful cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

The dishes served up here were all beautifully balanced in their complex flavours. The portions were not over-facing either, meaning we weren't overwhelmed by quantity allowing us to focus instead on quality. And quality dining this was. A pleasure.

“Awkward”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

We stopped in for an early dinner, one other couple there already and we were shown to a table at the door on a rainy day, after a bit of chat with the waiter, we ended up at a table in front of where the staff stand at the bar, slightly irritating to say the least especially when there were no other diners while we ate our meal.

Food was lovely, well prepared seafood although not a great choice of wines by the glass (only chardonnay)

The tables for four have a much better layout than those for couples.

“Good food and cosy atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

The Anchorage is a small but perfectly formed restaurant. We enjoyed a good meal here. I had the fish and chips, which was great, lovely soft well cooked fish and excellent home made chips! It was good value for money and the staff were very friendly. Good reports on the venison sausages too! We'll worth a visit.
