Visited for a mid week evening meal with my partner and her parents. Very impressed with what looks like a very recent refurbishment, got a bit of a New England look going on. Service was good with the waitress' being very friendly and attentive.

The in-laws both had the coq o vin, and both declared it a success, both saying they'd definitely have it again. My better half had the hake which I think was probably the best I've seen and wished I'd gone for it myself.

I had the chowder which at £19 was one of the most expensive dishes on the menu. It was really good I must say, but for that price I did expect more than 2 king prawns! I then finished off with the cheese and biscuits. This was why the score has dropped to a 4. Far too many crackers and bread (bread on a cheese board ??? Hmmm) and only 3 small pieces of brie, cheddar and Skipton all the size of which would have fitted on your average mouse trap, what a let down and a missed opportunity when there are so many good local cheeses.

In summary, fab place, fab service, decent food just avoid the cheese board

Thank you so much for your lovely comment and the mention of the Chowder &, cheese board, I will definitely make the head chef aware of this and hopefully you will enjoy next time you are here. I agree about the coq o vin it is a very healthy & hearty meal. Thank you

Visited here with my daughter and our dog . Was made to feel welcome and there was an area which was dog friendly and they provided him with a fresh bowl of water. The pub was lovely warm and clean and the staff were friendly and very helpful when we returned to hunt for a lost present . I got the steak pie which was yummy and my daughter got the chicken goujons, which also looked very nice. Would definitely return to this pub . 2 drinks, steak pie and kids meal came to around £20 .

kids decided I was treating them and their mother for a Mothers Day lunch decide on the Anglesey Arms for convenience, arrived at the car park to be greeted by builders vans and cabins and a notice saying parking was £3.00 and would be refunded at the bar which is fair enough if they have a issue with non-patrons parking there but what i found totlly unacceptable was the gang of workmen who were erecting scaffolding at the front of the hotel where the main entrance is, seriously is there another Manager/ess in the UK that would have permitted this on what is probably the busiest trading day of the year? I decided to go in anyway to keep the peace but after paying almost £20 for four overpriced drinks and looking at the restaurant prices in the Menu and the constant clatter and banging of the scaffolders we decided to leave.
Al i can say is whoever authorised this work on Mothers Day needs to consider another career as it's blatantly obvious they don;t have the foresight and understanding for the hospitality sector.

Ended up here as the pub we had planned to go to was shut, friendly staff children's fish and chips good quality. Set lunch menu had a good selection. I had sea bream which was cooked perfectly but really let down by under seasoned spinach which tasted like it had been wilted in oil, the whole dish was greasy which was a shame.
