“Excellent service and food!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We visit Sidmouth every April, we always call into the Anchor pub for a few drinks and a lovely meal, we are always made to feel welcome by staff, it is a great atmosphere and always look forward to coming again and again. Staff remember us from previous visits and always have a smile with a good service.

There is always plenty of food on the plate, great value for money.

“Just needs a bit of a kick to lift it to good.”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Considering the Anchor is so close to the seafront it would not be my first choice of pubs in Sidmouth although it's easy to find and visitors often arrange to meet there. The rear outdoor area is in the car park and the front tables are on a busy street. Great for people watching but just around the corner are pubs with a lovely sea view. Food at the Anchor is pretty average, good real ales and I've always found these to be be in tip top condition. At busy times there seem to be bar staff brought in on a temporary basis who have no interest at all in what's going on but the regular staff are efficient and friendly.

“Perfectly ok, but nothing special”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Fish n chips.... Large portions and friendly service, but only just worth the price. The fish was great but the chops were solid.
Recommend you eat fish n chips sat on the seafront!!
