Very very disapointed with our lunch on the 2nd January, to celebrate my 70th birthday. We booked this in November, and paid a deposit by the end of November. We booked for 19 adults 2 children and a baby. Some people had come all the way from Essex. When booked we were told there would be a Carvery. We booked...

We are so sorry that this was your experience on January 2nd. We were fully booked and unfortunately, as can sometimes happen, some of our early bookings arrived late and later bookings arrived early. As you can imagine this can put considerable pressure on both the front of house and kitchen team and despite our best efforts to manage the...

Out in the middle of nowhere but warm welcome. Staff couldn't do enough for you. Food amazing I had lamb off the specials board. Slightly spoilt by room though rather tired. Lovely to be woken up by the three chicken outside bedroom window.

Thank you for your review and lovely comments about the team and food. We do have plans to spruce up the accommodation rooms and our awareness that a few touches are needed are reflected in the room rates. Glad you met the chickens - they love a rich tea biscuit if you are ever our way again! warm regards

Yet another exactly lunch at the Anchor, nice filling soup with tasty bread, just what you need after a walk. Once again a lovely friendly welcome from the staff, it was great to eat next to the warming fire!

6 of us went to the Anchor on Sunday for a carvery, what a treat. The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel most welcome. The bar area was what I like from a traditional pub complete with a lovely log burning stove. Our waitress was very polite and chatty, looking after us very well. Two of our party...

We had our wedding reception here in May and it was fantastic. Laura was incredibly helpful in helping us plan the day/menus etc nothing was too much trouble. On the day friends and family were made to feel really welcome. Even last minute changes were dealt with by staff with no fuss. The food was excellent and came out hot...

Patience! My parents met friends at the Anchor for lunch one day in the week and were infuriated by the patience of the Landlord. He could not wait to get rid of them and had no patience! Is this how they treat OAP's at the Anchor

Would definitely recommend!! Friendly-Efficient-Great Facilities-Good Menu Laura and the staff of The Anchor Inn were helpful from start to finish. They accommodated a wide variety of dietary needs. Provided a beautifully decorated private room with access to the garden. The well-equipped play garden was brilliant for the energy-packed kids in our group. They worked with us to make each aspect...

We stayed here for two nights to attend a wedding. The best one could say of the room was that it was adequate. No attempt was made to service it in any way during our stay. There were used tissues in the bathroom bin and a half used shampoo in the shower when we arrived. Breakfast was odd - it...

I'm very sorry that this was your experience with us. During the time you stayed with us we had employed a new 'experienced' chambermaid. Unfortunately when left to work on her own, it transpired that her standards were very much below our own. Needless to stay she was only with us for under two weeks. I know sometimes guests can...

Lover of using local businesses rather than the national chains. But some tips. Buy a brush, get rid of the spiders throughout the family room. I think my kids are traumatised. Buy a hairdryer for the room. Turn over the rooms each day - Open the bar past 10pm, and the fully booked rooms will spend enough to cover these...
