We had never been before so thought we would try it . The food was delicious pipping hot and plenty of it . The staff were all very friendly and the land lord and lady made extra effort to come speak to us and check everything was ok . There was some entertainment (singers) that was very good and the atmosphere was great . The pub was very clean and welcoming and we will be returning and also telling others how nice it was . Thanks for a lovely evening

The food was amazing, I had turkey but the gravy tasted like beef, so my only suggestion would be to offer another flavour gravy if serving with anything other than beef. I do not like the taste of beef, so it did ruin the taste of the food a little.

The food was and always is amazing. Value for money and portion size more than enough. Country feel pub with pleasant surroundings. The restaurant area was closed so this took a little away from the experience however it was due to the kitchen closing earlier to help maintain running costs. Did not disappoint

We went to The Anchor on Christmas Eve for Mum’s birthday and we had a great evening! The food was top notch and all home made …everything was cooked to perfection!…but what made the evening for us was being made to feel so welcome. The landlord came over for a chat after we’d eaten (even though it was his night off) and we had a chat with his wife too. The Bar Manager was equally as welcoming, in fact it felt like we’d known her for a lot longer than a couple of hours and exchanged hugs when we left :-) We will definitely be back and wholeheartedly recommend the place.

We felt welcome from the moment we arrived. I booked online which was easy to do. We asked to eat in the bar rather than the restaurant as we like to be part of the laughter, conversation & feel of pub life! We ordered 2 Anchor Burgers. The menu doesn’t do the food justice. It was amazing. Burger, fried onion rings, fresh salad, home made coleslaw and hand cut chips. All washed down with a couple of bottles of blush Prosecco! This was our “date night” and the pub provided candles on our table which made up feel very special

Sunday roasts were very nice. Lots of veg and generous portion of meat. However totally let down by store bought frozen Yorkshire. At £12 a plate you'd expect home made. Other than that it was great apart from being sat ne t to a toilet.

Visited The Anchor for the first time and were met by very welcoming staff. They orders were taken quickly and the food came out in good time and was lovely. After that we were forgotten and had to go and ask if we could order desserts. I think it would have been better to have been seated in the main part of the pub. Can’t fault the food or the portion size, staff were lovely but just felt a bit neglected because we were out of sight!!

The food was excellent. Unfortunately the serving team did not tell us when they took our order that there was going to be a significant delay with our food being prepared as there was a large party in the function room. We waited 1 hour 20 minutes. There was no ambience as there was no music playing.

The food was well presented and good value for the money although to wait 45/50 minutes for it to arrive with no explanation was far to long, I could understand if it was very busy but there was only one other family in the restaurant,there were a few people in the pub , such ashamed as we enjoyed the meal.

2 of our party advised their steaks were not edible, the response was sorry about that. Overall the rest of the food was really good and lots of it so if you have a big appetite this is the place for you. Plenty of choice and well presented. Just needs a little more responsiveness on feedback, not asking for money back just an acknowledgement that everything was not all ok
