  • Mister said: "Extremely Poor Food
    The food at the restaurant was far below average. I had a pork and apple pie with good chips, although some were hard in the middle. The pie was not good; the pork was a bit tough and the flavours were mediocre. The vegetables were terrible, dry and badly cooked. Overall the food was poor. I've had genuinely had better food at a fast food restaurant or roadside cafe. It is not an exaggeration to say it was the worst meal I've had in weeks and I felt thoroughly dissatisfied. The only reason I didn't comment was out of embarrassment being with company. One of the most annoying things was the stressing of the food being home made. Firstly, all food at a restaurant should be homemade. Secondly, it doesn't matter who made it if it's terrible. Service was decent and the staff were friendly. However I rate this a 1 star experience. Even with a £14 total with TasteCard food would've been better from the local chippy. "

  • Roger said: "Anchor & Hope
    Went to Anchor & Hope for lunch. Ordered 2 Rump Steak meals and 2 large glasses of red wine. Both steaks were absolutely dreadful - hard to cut and impossible to chew. The chips were good and hot, and the tomato was OK. The lettuce leaf garnish was limp and slimy in places. We pointed all this out to the Waitress who said she would show it to the Chef. Using our Card, we paid £13.95 for both steak meals (plus 2 glasses of wine £11) - but even that seemed expensive for what in effect was a few nice chips and a piece of tomato each.
    NO, we won't be going there again, and would not recommend it. "

    Have only ever been for a drink before ( in the garden area) and have always said we'd go back. Taste card gave us the kick up the bum to do that.

    The pub is full of character and very friendly people. The bar area is well decorate, light but has as the wonderful air of comfort when you slump back in one of the cosy sofas with your drink for the evening.

    Food portions were large and with the taste card, a bargain! Had the ploughmans which was amazing and plentiful whilst Hubby had a steak and onion baguette with chips. He said it was the best steak he had EVER tasted.

    A big well done to the Hope & Anchor. We will definitely be back! "
