As a local to the Anchor eating and drinking I would like to say the present landlord/landlady have all ways made us very welcome when we are eating or just called for a drink . We think that the food is of a high standard very reasonably priced and plenty of it. The beer is some of the cheapest in the vale. I would just like to say that I was in the pub last Sunday dinner having a drink and after reading the negative comment left by one couple I think that some people can't be pleased no matter how hard you try. The pub was very busy with eaters/drinkers and I didn't see anyone else complaining and the roast dinners were all sold out later as thay are most Sundays.

Having read a most unacceptable review of the anchor we would like to set the record straight. From start to finish we all had a wonderful time. The greeting when we arrived was much more than friendly, the food was fabulous and such good value. There wasn't anything left on our plates. Even the children we had with us had eaten all the veg up! I would highly recommend anyone to visit this lovely village pub to either taste the fab food or just to enjoy a drink in a very friendly welcoming setting.

We visit the Anchor regularly for meals, we were sat next to this family on Sunday, in my opinion i felt that the landlady bent over backwards to accommodate this family by offering to replace your meal as well as a complementary drink. if the food was that awful how come you ate a majority of your food. The Anchor was very busy, no other complaints were made and on your exit you state, you would rather not pay for two of your meals that is not what you said your actual words were "I'm not paying for two of the meals" in my opinion it is understandable that the Landlady was upset as she had tried to accommodate you and then you refuse to pay for two meals, you then pay for the rest then leave a tip?
This is our opinion our food was lovely.
