Booked with friend and kids for a Sunday roast and wasn't disappointed. Plenty of food on the plate and the toddler meal for my eldest was more than enough for her. Staff friendly and a nice little place. Can't believe I've not been here before....More

Popped into this place for evening meal. Lovely food, friendly staff and great selection of beers. Stayed most of the night as they had a good music act after 9pm. Highly recommended.

The Sunday Lunch at The Rope and Anchor is phenomenal. Dining with a large group of friends we were made to feel immediately welcome. The food was out of this world. Plentiful in size and cooked to perfection. Will definitely return in the near future!

Once again this place doesn’t disappoint on their roast. Simply lovely food. Love that it does all meats and you can pick how many. Do love this place and the sticky toffee pudding was lovely too. Just what you want on a rainy Sunday
