This place oozes 14th Century character, especially the entrance bar, what a place!!! Probably the best pub I have visited in respect to its architecture, but on the whole it wasn't perfect by far.
The food, although very nice was a bit pricey and on the small side. Had to pay extra for the garlic bread with my beef stroganoff, which is often standard. Had a similar meal at another local pub (see my other review) for the same price had twice as much in my bowl and the bread was included. The service was ok but I did get the feeling that the staff were not as friendly to us English as their fellow Welsh visitors.
Now the bad bit. The Gents rest room was appalling. The only sink to wash your hands in had no hot water due to the fact the tap was falling off the basin and there was no running water to the urinals. Also tiles were smashed in places and the room seemed dirty and out dated. It probably had better toilets when it was built in the 1380's !!!
Don't normally mention the restrooms when I review an establishment, but they were dreadful, this complaint may get the owners to sort this Health and Safety/Public Hygiene issue out.
Could easily have gives The Blue Anchor Inn Five Stars, spend some cash on your amenities and offer a little better value for money and you're there!
