Visited this evening couldn’t fault the service, the waitresses were very attentive. We had the jerk pork, pulled pork burger and salt and pepper chicken and really couldn’t have asked for it to be any yummier little wait for food but definitely worth it!

Due to the pandemic, pubs, pub suppers, good ales, and friendly table service were threatening to become a distant memory. Could the Anchor Inn - still burdened by enforced (and sensible!) anti covid measures still get across some of the magic that makes places like this special?

Yes. Yes it could. Food was delicious, reasonably priced and with a fair few options that elevated it beyond the usual pyhb service excellent (even more so if you were a dog), and

Even tied to Robinsons(?) it still had an excellent range of ale,

A friend had recommended that a few of us have dinner at this pub after our day exploring the Peak District. We were served by a friendly and warm lady, Serene, who immediately made us feel at home. She combined that warmth with a thorough knowledge of what the pub had to offer. Two of us had the burger special, the meat for which was sourced from a nearby farmer, while the other two had the roast pork, which was sourced from the local region. We also had the onion rings and salt and pepper chicken to start. They were happy to switch the sauce for the burger special on my partner's order for a regular sauce. The food was simply divine, as evidenced by the totally empty plates by the end of dinner.

It was also the first ever pub dinner I had been to where they actually brought out taster beer shots to help us decide which beer to have when we were having trouble making up our minds! Very impressed with how they put the customer first. It was the best dinner I had had in a long time, which was thanks to both the quality food and the warm service.

Heading home from The Peak District to Portsmouth, after a full day paddle boarding on the peak forest canal,we needed food. It was gone 9pm and most places had stopped serving food. We pulled in to The Anchor car park under a sign that said "Food served all day". It was false hope, they had stopped serving. However, the landlady and her staff bent over backwards to make us some paella and a portion of home made salt and pepper chips. We even had the cheese cake pudding. Just what we needed before the long drive home. They could not have been nicer.
