It was with reluctance that together with my husband, we left the Anchor Inn after a short break at the end of March.
I would reiterate all, and more, of the praise that has already been heaped on this humble pub.
The only thing which I feel is that as more people learn what a gem this accommodation is, it will make it harder to make a reservation.
Comfort in the rooms, sea view, exceptionally friendly staff, great food in the restaurant. Free wifi that worked!
We ate dinner, an exceptional choice, with a fish selection which was changed daily - moules were to die for!
We planned to eat elsewhere sometimes but after dinner on our first night we took a stroll up the high street and were shocked to find that nowhere was open. Except the Dolphin Hotel and that was empty which made it void of atmosphere. Even the Indian was closed and it was only 21.30.
The parking charges in the main car-park behind the Dolphin hotel, changed on 1st April,: £6 per 24hours, payable by phone, card or cash, take a bag of pound coins!
The small free car park next to the hotel is limited to 1 hour, no return for 2 hours, up the hill you may stay for 2 hours, no return for 2 hours.
Alternatively, you can park for free in the car park at the back of the village, approximately 5-7 minutes walk.
The bus service from Beer Cross, (next to the last shop at the top of the village), X53 west to Exeter, or east to Poole. Its called the Jurassic coast bus because of all the seaside resorts it calls into on its way. Look on Google for times, when we were there the morning times which suited us were: 09.57 & 11.57, 2 hour later!
Using the bus ensures that you do not lose your parking spot in Beer village, and have to hunt for another space on your return, also alleviates the necessity for expensive parking wherever you go.
I hope this helps.
Would we go there again, yes, yes, yes!
