Great afternoon, the wait for food was a little bit long but that’s fine, the sun was shining.
Lovely food and staff were very helpful! Will deffo be back
Had a lovely time at the Anchor in the sunshine. Really impressed with set up and well organised. Food was lovely only reason I gave 4 stars and not 5 was the buttermilk chicken burger had something spicy in it and I asked waitress for no avocado and it came in the burger but apart from that had a nice afternoon.
staff really friendly. lovely setting, food was great !
Went to the anchor for my partners 21st birthday! The food was delicious! The service was exceptional! Will definitely go again!
Faultless. Food was beautiful and the staff really made it special the weather was a little against us for outside but their smiles and can do spirit made it all worth while.
Patio heaters were a God send x
The staff were all friendly and welcoming. The Covid procedures in place made us feel very comfortable. We felt the service should have been a little faster.
Overall good experience. Would return.
Lovely meal, table service was efficient and friendly
Lovely pub with decent food at a fair price. The service was impeccable too, all the staff were so friendly and helpful, always making sure we had drinks!
Lovely food and beautiful location. Excellent service
Staff were friendly and safe good service food was excellent went with friends for a birthday and they love it got a pod booked in may
Contact details for track and trace were taken on arrival. Temperatures taken too.
Lots of outdoor tables well spaced. Most are away from heaters and lighting sources. Not possible to specifically book a heated table. Staff were mostly wearing masks and care was taken to not overhandle items coming to the table. Drinks, cutlery and meals arrived on a tray which we were asked to take from tray and place on table. Menu range is limited - I guess to accommodate social distancing in the kitchen. I thought that the prices were a little on the high side. One way system in the building for toilets was confusing and people were largely ignoring signs. Can't imagine eating outdoors here in the evening. Our climate is just not favourable enough. Lunchtime with a drop of sun was just about comfortable.
Food was not nice , lovely pub and staff though was disappointing
Had lunch on the first day of re-opening after lock down and had a really enjoyable lunch. Very well organised in terms of covid safety and the food and service was very good.
Staff are amazing, grounds were spotless! Food was excellent and atmosphere was relaxing and peaceful
Excellent outdoor space set around river. Thoroughly respectful of social distancing. Food tasty and service excellent.
Would suggest a few more heaters if at all possible.
Always amazing food and service. Lovely being in the marquee made it feel very Christmassy. Cannot wait to go back again soon!
We had a lovely evening here , food was amazing and service was very good too would highly recommend.
Amazing dining experience on Christmas Eve in the orangery - the setting is stunning, food is delicious and service is good. Family friendly without compromise on food and setting. Will be returning without doubt.
Front of house service was brilliant, waitress was rude and hovered over us all meal, and when speaking to us felt she was again very rude.
It is much nicer eating in the building than in the orangery. We came for a Sunday roast previously and it was great but food on the normal menu was mediocre
Great family atmosphere on Christmas Eve. Had a lovely lunch, even the heavy rain outside could not dampen the day
Lovely food and beautiful decor. Had a lovely relaxing night would definitely visit again .
We had a lovely meal and the service was excellent. Can’t fault this restaurant at all especially considering these COVID times!
Well organised and accommodating - lovely food and good service - love the new Orangery
Even though they were battling with the Gas for the kitchen, the service was brilliant. We were kept updated constantly and the food was very good.
The best Sunday lunch for miles cannot wait to come back with family and friends.
Very nice Sunday lunch. Roast beef as it should be somewhat rare. No annoying Muzac that we noticed thankfully.
Can thoroughly recommend The Anchor as a place to eat. Helpful staff and delicious food - lovely :)
Had a fabulous evening in the orangery with the family .. the whole atmosphere was lovely and the food was really good ..
The service was attentive and efficient and our waitress was really friendly ..
Couldn’t fault our evening .
Very disappointing visit. Our family of 4 were shunted into the Orangery for dinner. While it looks nice and pretty, it’s noisy ( rain pelting down on the glass roof), and floor is raised so you feel movement every time someone walks past.
Complete disregard for covid risk here, with birthday parties spread across a number of adjacent tables and people mixing, and kids running around.
Food is acceptable but portions small and extremely poor value. The turkey roast dinner had virtually no veggies with it - one carrot and that was it. When we asked for the sprouts, we were handed a cup of raw sliced sprouts. Kids meals were very overpriced at £8 each, and didn’t include drink or dessert, and again, portions tiny.
Desserts were poor. One scoop of ice cream was just that, small scoop with not even a wafer with it. Sticky toffee pudding tasted of something completely different, possibly a bit of chocolate.
Overall a pretty poor experience and we won’t waste our time or money returning here.
I was surprised to hear you didn't enjoy the Orangery that we have installed to try and combat the difficult Covid environment, maybe the spirit of this was misunderstood by your group. We DO NOT allow mixed groups and our policy is to not allow any guests to leave their tables whilst dining unless to use the toilet facilities. If you read through our reviews we are praised for the effort and hard work we have put into ensuring the safety of our staff, guests and the local community.
Lovely food, great service too. After our meal we were advised the table was needed but we could continue with our evening with soft drinks at the lounge afterwards. Only negative was that there wasn’t any lighting in their car park. Highly recommend though 👌🏻
We are in the orangery, which was absolutely magical!! It's a shame the food didn't match. I ordered the salmon with noodles £18 or £19. The salmon was a small piece that you would buy from a supermarket for £1.50 and was cooked in tinfoil in the oven and tasted like it. very small amount of noodles - very underwhelming for the price. No garlic mash with the mushroom and blue cheese pie. What, run out of potatoes???? Pear and frangipan tart was dry and tasteless. A real shame as it's a lovely location.
Really lovely!!! Great food and surroundings!!!!!!
Not keen on the wooden benches. Limited vegetarian or vegan menu options
Nice food & great atmosphere would highly recommend
The outside table we booked with three small children it was quite cold, not enough heaters, the service was pretty poor we had keep waving someone over for every course then for the bill. I can’t believe we also had to pay £13 for 6 children’s lemonades not very good value for money. My burger also didn’t really have any flavour. And the children’s chicken goujons were over cooked.
Lovely pub by the river! Working hard to provide comfortable indoor and outdoor dining in a COVID safe environment! Well done
Food was delicious and the stuff were very friendly. Love in there.
