Good food in a classique pub ! Do not miss chefs specials on Black boards. Always fits the guests in, even if fully booked.

Wonderful party held at the Anchor, catering so much food supplied, everyone who attended was really impressed. We were allowed to decorate the room and the staff could not do enough for us. Can highly recommend the Anchor

We had wonderful fish pies all round. Excellent value and quality. Best location in Sidmouth. So relaxing outside on a summer day or evening. They genuinely care about their customers.

We visited for a pre-theatre meal. I would recommend booking if eating after 6.30. The tables are nicely set out and the menu extensive to suit all tastes and budgets. Coffee was very reasonably priced. Orders are taken at the bar.
