Beautiful setting, relaxing and delicious food. Also dog friendly, which is good as Ava the pug ran off in search of the kitchen. The staff were very understanding and spent time getting to know Ava 🙊

Very interesting menu but pricey. Need to stick to 2 courses for £13.30 which is rather a strange amount we each paid..food was very good and the service also. Spoilt for choice on the fixed price which is a good sign

The Anchor Inn is certainly an attractive looking pub. It is immediately welcoming too. It has clearly had a high quality makeover which works well. It has created lots of individually styled areas that give the pub an intimate, friendly feel. It gives the space...More
