Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very misleading as we booked a nice room in the pub and we got a cabin in the car park. Tiny room, same price as in the pub. With a broken bed and side lamp bulb gone. They clearly pay no attention to the maintenance of the rooms. Complained and we were moved into the pub. Lovely room in the pub (apart from the cable ties holding the shower together), but the music in the bar was ridiculously loud until 9pm. I complained, as did a neighbour across the road, it was that loud. Such a shame as this pub is nice and breakfast was great. But it seems like the current owners are not getting the most out of it. The one shining light was the girl working while we were there. She was very professional throughout. We won’t be returning and we wouldn’t recommend.

Excellent accommodation and welcoming staff. Great location for visiting the area. Cleanliness was to a high level in the rooms and I would definitely return. Breakfast also well presented and very tasty.

The staff were brilliant, the place has lots of charm and character. The food was superb and catered really well for gluten free and children so much so we went back after check out for the Sunday roast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definately return. Such a cosy atmosphere in the winter, with the log burner a lovely place to enjoy a few pints.

I know The Anchor of old and I could hardly believe the transformation! Lovely bar area and a lovely room. Great staff too. Veggie breakfast in the morning, and the coffee, was outstanding. I have reluctantly knocked a mark off because the shower was playing up but I understand they are having issues with the system and are getting it sorted.

Lovely pub with a separate restaurant and offering B&B accommodation. I stayed here for one night for work. Staff are friendly and there's a good atmosphere in the cosy bar area. Breakfast was included in my room rate and it was very good indeed. Evening meal was also good with a decent selection of dishes to choose from. Can't fault the place really. I would imagine that when they are fully booked up the car park can be quite tight but the village square is only 100m away and I believe that that offers free parking

We stayed at the Anchor Inn as part of a wedding party as it was close to the venue. We had a fabulous stay. Tom and his staff are very friendly and extremely helpful making the stay relaxed and enjoyable. The room was clean and comfortable but most of all the food is excellent. Breakfast was good and we all had an evening meal....there is a good selection on the menu and the food was delicious. Would definitely stay again.

We chose this pub bed and breakfast in the countryside for an overnight stay as it was 20 minutes away from Brittany Ferry Terminal in Plymouth.The pub is unpretentious and in the centre of village of Ivybridge.However when you enter it is a real surprise as it has had a modern and subtle makeover with quirky finishing touches such as trompe l'oeil.Ben was kind enough to inform us the day before that there was works being carried out on drainage pipes in street outside hotel and relocated us to cabins at back of pub to ensure we had a water supply.Ben also cooked a wonderful cooked breakfast with vegetarian option the following morning proving his culinary skills as a former chef We paid £80 for bed and breakfast for all round quality

We got married in early June 2023 and held our wedding reception at the Anchor. We know the pub very well and live locally. However, that does not influence this review as Tom the landlord and his team were amazing leading up to the wedding with the planning of the reception, budgeting and allowing us free reign to dress the restaurant as we wanted. We booked out all 10 rooms at the Anchor and all family and friends that stayed were very happy and looked after with a great breakfast each morning. We had the most amazing wedding day and the reception went onto late in the night. The staff worked tirelessly and always had a smile when serving. The rooms were super clean and very comfortable. Highly recommend this pub in an amazing village.

We stayed at the anchor inn ugborough last night. The room was lovely and spacious, perfect fot a family, with 2 kids and 1 baby. Tom was very helpful, he helped with sorting the baby some warm milk for her bottle and even helped arranging breakfast for us earlier than the normal breakfast time so that we could get on the road ! Comfy beds, clean facilities. Oh and we had a wonderful meal in the evening, good portion size and good value ! So glad we've found this place 🙌
