Our initial reaction to the village and the pub were good. Tom was very welcoming and attentive, he seemed to run the pub/restaurant nearly single handed. The pub was set to distancing standards, some times confusing, with people not keeping to the rules. The carpets in the residential areas were filthy. Our room (no.1) was spacious, although it lacked some basic cleanliness and maintenance. Glass ring stains on the window sill, chipped water glass, Stains on the carpets, Electric towel rail not working, general lime scale around bathroom fittings.Pity it had a fixed shower head as this was impossible for ladies to use without getting their hair wet. The food in the restaurant was good, our first breakfast served by Tom was good, although the fried eggs had frizzled edges. We would stay here again once they were back up with their maintenance etc. If they let us after this review.

My family and I stayed 1 night at the anchor . Somebody in the not too distant past has invested a lot of money in this pub/ hotel The rooms are reasonably well appointed , but there are obvious signs that maintenance and attention to detail are not what they should be . We were awakened regularly by slamming doors due to poorly set door closers . Fixtures and fittings that are of quality are being neglected. Upon waiting for 10 minutes at the deserted bar for some drinks before I managed to catch a waitress ,who before I could say anything told me Laura would be with me shortly ! After a further wait I wandered through to the next room to find anyone , the reaction from Laura was not one I expected ! Clearly miffed I had 3 drinks and a bottle thrust on the bar I had to ask for ice and a tray , which were duly supplied. On a more positive note the manager ,Tom seems to be running the place single handedly .His constant cheerfulness and help is no doubt the lynchpin on a rather sluggish load . He also cooked the best breakfast I have had in a long time . I would suggest some retraining may be needed in some areas .

Ok but only for one night in my opinion. Set in pretty village with 1 other pub. Pub, restaurant with accommodation. No parking as car park has been turned over to outdoor drinking area. Car parking is available in nearby square. Our main contact was a friendly helpful chap called Tom, very good service from him throughout. Accommodation was very clean, modern but rooms were really small and just a standard sized double bed. Room was hot and you will definitely need to ask for a fan on warm nights. The window only opened a tiny bit. Irritating that there was no space to put anything, a couple small shelves, no cupboards or space for a wardrobe, room became a little oppressive. Bathroom well appointed and nice powerful shower. Food was very good, we were offered a lovely window table and were seated (by Tom) only to be asked rather formally by lady whom we found a little prickly to move, as table had been specifically reserved, albeit no sign to indicate as such. We should have refused. I asked said lady for Red wine glasses only for her to “educate” me that the ones offered (tulip style if I heard correctly) were indeed Red wine ones. They weren’t and were the same size as the white ones. The other young lady who served us throughout our meal was a delight. Soup, prawns were very good but the star starter was the very plump mussels, never had any so good anywhere. The Thai curry was excellent too. Nice that we weren’t asked to vacate dining room when all other guests had left, we stayed up chatting till around 11.30pm. Breakfast was very good.

The guy who runs the place was so friendly and helpful. We had a relaxing meal in the restaurant and enjoyed our food. Rooms are tight but beautifully decorated. It was hot and we requested a fan. If you can reserve one when booking do so. Great breakfast. It’s such a nice location and the church is impressive in size. There’s no shops in the village but there are close by. Two pubs including the Anchor . We just kicked back and chilled. Would recommend . There are lovely old photos of the village in The Anchor

We visite for dinner in June, we were remembered which was lovely Dinner was good and the atmosphere in the bar was great.The room was clean and pretty and the facilities fir the digs were a very nice touch.New Year was fab and we were made to feel like family.Unfortunately breakfast let them down.The chef was late,and the waitress didn't seem to know what she was doing,although she was pleasant enough.They ran out of bread and black pudding,the bacon was dry,there was no explanation or apology. This may have been a blip as New Year festivities always cause staffing issues. We would/will return.
