Firstly I should like to say that the staff of The Anchor are first class. They are attentive and friendly, with nothing being too much trouble. I can honestly say that this is a pub for friends and family alike. Service with a smile and value for money. Visitors will be made especially welcome by the locals.

Second time I've been here for a roast dinner. Finding a decent roast dinner at a reasonable cost always a challenge but this place is great! So reasonable, good portion and delicious. Recommend ....
