We just returned from a lovely meal at the Swan in Salford, with good food and excellent service. We didn’t expect to be eating at the Swan, but ended up there after leaving the Anchor in disgust. We gave up and left after abysmal service....More

Visited on a Saturday for lunch and overall a good visit. We arrived a little early and this seemed to catch out the team. Not too sure why as there was only one other table. The pub is well decorated and inviting, great food and...More

I know nothing of this policy, but davidjack's answer sounds logical. The manager at The Anchor is Sean McQuirk if you want to ask him. He and his staff have always been very accommodating for me and my companions.
