I've eaten at the Anchor on a number of occasions but in a lunchtime visit on Bank Holiday Monday we all noticed a slip in the speed of service.
The food was up to the normal excellent standard, but with a full restaurant there only seemed to be 3 waitresses working and one of these was obviously new to the restaurant as she kept having to refer back to the others.
Hopefully this was a glitch that will be remedied, but to stop customers having to constantly ask for menus, drinks, the bill etc the pub needs to ensure a better staff cover, it wasn't that the staff weren't doing their best, it was just a lack of them.
