The food was fine, even though I was told that there was a set menu for Sunday's, however the service was incredibly slow and we were there for getting on for 3 hours. Not recommended/

My husband and I came here for dinner the other evening and we were impressed by the lovely old pub, its brickwork and beams. We had a lovely meal, however portions weren't very large but nevertheless delicious. Service was good, apart from one young lady who seemed to have abit of an attitude, like we were a nuisance. However the... More

Our daughter had visited the Anchor Inn with friends before Christmas and recommended the food served there. I saw an offer for a set menu deal via Travel zoo so booked our meal for family members. There were several choices for starters, main course and dessert. The only problem was which to choose! The starters arrived pretty promptly, and the... More

I have only visited this pub once, it was on a company Xmas meal. Not greatly impressed I have to say, very old looking inside and made that way, but bordered on ramshackle rather than antiquated. I had the Steak meal, so chewy Wrigleys would have been proud, made my jaw ache gnawing through so much gristle, desert was absolute... More

Had a lovely meal with friends, we went using a Travelzoo offer which made the meal great value. We last ate here 5 years ago and hopefully it won't be as long before we visit again. Couldn't fault our choices nor quality of the food presented, piping hot, tasty and great quality. Our only suggestion was the main course had... More

More of a gastro pub than a traditional drinking pub but delicious food and good service. We booked the suite which was comfortable and quiet.

I first met my now wife at the Anchor Inn and after a lovely walk by the river we had an excellent meal. Some 4 years later we decided to return to remember that day and booked a 3 course meal through Groupon. We duly arrived on a very quiet evening, in fact, we were the only 2 in the... More
