I was in the Anchor Inn early this evening an was disgusted by the Landlord berating three elderly women because they had complained about the food. He actually went so far as to bar them from the pub. They were no trouble and he bawled them out in front of everybody. We left the pub after the women had left as we were appalled at the way they were treated. They were very upset.
Another one of those places that a few do gooders are trying to say its better than actual. Very ordinary, no atmosphere and the landlord not welcoming. Suggest driving elsewhere. Other food outlets in Doddington are far better.
Attended "Supper Club" on Friday night which according to the posters is monthly on the 3rd Friday. This was first one I've been to. Food was great. Nice and tasty and very good value for 3 courses. There was also entertainment booked, a local band, for the night. Great night. Band was entertaining, food was good and the atmosphere was good fun. Even the barman got to sing a song! Booked for the next supper club already and highly recommend.
Really friendly landlord. Tea was really good, the waitress was nice and helpful. Room was clean and presentable. Pub side had been done out nicely m. Would definitely go again. Thank you for a nice stay.
Under new management now and a great improvement on the food always has what's on the menu and is well cooked. Staff very friendly and helpful. Yes it still needs a bit more decorating done but they are getting there . Overall its well worth a visit. Happy days for The Anchor.
Great pub, family friendly and food available should you require. Entertainment such as pool, juke box and darts available. Been going here years as it's my local. Always a plus when friendly dogs are allowed 😊🐶
We stopped here for lunch while doing a circular walk from March to Wimblington and back. The mother of the owner came over to chat with us and was very friendly. She said her son had recently taken over the place (he came and chatted with us, too) and they are making changes. We both had sandwiches with chips and they were very good. Menu has a lot of different items to choose from. Would certainly go back there if we were in the area again.
A pub with great potential. The new management ( since December 2015) clearly have work in progress to create a cosy and comfortable village pub. The staff were very welcoming and we were made to feel at home. We visited for Sunday lunch and we noticed that we were the only diners - slightly concerning. Whilst there was a Sunday roast advertised which together with a comprehensive menu, provided for alternative choices. My companions opted for the "light bite" fish and chips. whilst I selected the meat pie. The fish was deemed a great disappointment by both friends; my meat pie was, on the other hand, good. We all had sweets which were also good, so just about value for money. overall. The management are trying hard but clearly have some way yet to go to up their game.
Only had a meal but walked into the Anchor to find a crying baby which belonged to the barmaid! Food awful, chips cold, ham had been put under the grill but the onion rings were hot and nice. Coldslaw really bad! Was not asked how the food was. Couple had a agrument behind the bar because she hadn't told him she was going to Birmingham on Thursday. Held baby while serving drinks behind the bar! Didn't make a fuss, just paid for the food which was buy one meal get one free but will never go back. Awful!
Good friendly village pub. The landlord is new and is really making a difference. Good pub food at very reasonable prices, give it time and this place will be one of the best in the area. I can recommend the specials nights, the deals really do not hurt the wallet and you get a good meal.
