The vegetarian roast was very good. I especially enjoyed the nut roast. The vegetables were fresh and not overcooked. My negative comment would be that I couldn't eat all that was delivered, because the portions were very generous!! But lovely!

We had Sunday lunch at the Crown and Anchor. They had a staff shortage that day, but despite this the young lady serving us managed really well and remained very cheerful throughout. The food was extremely tasty and very good value for money. The only down side is the interior, it is very tatty, dirty worn out carpets and the ladies loo had no paper towels, the hand dryer was hanging off the wall by its cable and looked very unsafe. I always think when eating out "if the loos are bad, what is the kitchen like"? Despite this I would eat at the Crown and Anchor again because our Sunday lunch was so nice.

We were seated outside just after 7pm and given menus. Time passed as we chatted and we didn't go inside to order food until just after 8, only to be told that the kitchen closes at 8pm. Very disappointing as we would have ordered sooner had we been told the kitchen closes so early. I appreciate that it's difficult times at the moment but all it would have taken was for the waitress to advise us what time the kitchen closes.

My only criticism is in relation to the sweet. I ordered cheesecake which took an inordinate amount of time to arrive.when it did arrive I was very dissapointed in the portion size certainly not value for money. To be fair the staff were very apologetic but did not offer any explanation.
