We stayed here for 3 nights earlier this week, in the Robert Graves room. This historic 16th Century Inn features low beams, so fair warning for those much over 5'7" in some areas (remember to watch your head!). I would have given it 5 stars, but the shower didn't drain well (and had to shut the water off a couple... More

Just been to a birthday lunch for 20+ at The Anchor. Fabulous food (Sunday roasts just DELICIOUS), super attentive service, well considered wine list and a gorgeous private dining room. Can't wait to go back (and will definately stay over next time - the decor is just lovely).

We stayed for a couple of nights here in the middle of the week in the deluxe room which was a very large, comfortable room with a king-sized bed. I believe one or some of the smaller rooms may only have a double bed, so be aware of that when booking. I was surprised at how large the room was.... More

Excellent food- the tasting menu was sublime. Friendly and attentive staff that were willing to go the extra mile in making our stay perfect. Cote de boeuf to be recommended when it is on the specials board. Crispy pigs ear scratchings were a definite hit!

We stayed for 3 nights to arrange and attend a family wedding at nearby Bonham's Barn. The Inn is charming, excellent rooms, "shabby chic" decor and very good food both at breakfast and dinner. Staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble to them. Even the locals in the bar were friendly. Overall, a very good experience, reasonably... More

Upon visiting the lovely pub which is The Anchor, we left dissatisfied. The menu is very bland made flashy. £25.50 for a 6oz steak is unfortunately not an option! So we opted for the fish and chips, keep it simple, £14 per head. It was served in reasonably prompt time....As the waitress approached with the tedious chunks of wood acting... More

Quirky room - the 'Richard Hillary' - with lots of character. Wonderful bathroom with very high quality toiletries. This is a classy place with interesting décor. The food was delicious (restaurant quality, restaurant prices) and all the staff were really friendly.
