Well where do i start? Walked in to a pub/hotel/resterauant that makes a tired looking place look up market. Kids allowed to climb over the furniture, including tables! Kids screaming & running riot. Dogs allowed in the resteraunt. Sat down & looked at the menu. As you do when you want food. Only to find upon ordering food, that around... More

Also we had to wait 45 minutes for the... More

We called in here for the Sunday lunch carvery. The food was reasonable and there was plenty of it, but it was a little on the cold side. They need to sort out the counter because flies were buzzing around the food. The old lady that served the meat at the carvery didn't seem to mind at all, but then... More

Went here for the carvery and it was barely warm. If you like cold food then go here. The staff don't know how to smile and everyone looked miserable. I would definitely NOT recommend this place.

The Anchor has two sides one for adults and one for kids, I found the entertainment in the adult side was very good with different acts. We're as the kids side was just a disco, food ok, bar ok, needs at least a paint job, inside
