Just out for a drive and came across this beautiful pub/ hotel. They were very busy but were very accommodating and we had a wonderful lunch. Great atmosphere, cosy, friendly staff and lots of room. Would highly recommend a visit.

Stopped off during afternoon ride around countryside looking for a coffee and dessert/ cake. Bit disappointed with only a small choice of 4 desserts but the sticky toffee pudding was good. Really nice garden and picturesque as next to the river Ouse with small boats to hire. Worth a visit if out exploring.

Absolutely disgusted with the service we receive today, arrived and granted it was busy but no excuse for the way we were approached and spoken to by staff, firstly we asked if we had to order at the bar and the waitress replied 'well yes it's not table service' then after ordering we waited two hours for our food x3...

We have been to the Anchor Inn on several occasions, it is in a beautiful location and rowing a boat up the Ouse is just such a lovely thing to do so we returned there today. The food at the Anchor Inn is never good quality and always takes ages to arrive so we decided to take a picnic to...

Had a midweek lunch last week (Nov 2016) for the first time since being refurbished - the pub, not us!. The good things were: ease of parking, friendly efficient staff, beer. The not quite so good things were: a limited menu; the curry I had was tasteless with nil spice, many food items were more expensive than many other local...

The anchor inn, what can I say, I had high expectations so brought my mum for her birthday...very disappointing!! our mains came before our starters which resulted in our mains sitting under a hotplate whilst we attempted our starters. Frozen calamari, garlic mushrooms (minus the garlic) and covered in a greasy cream and butter sauce. Staff hovering to take the...

Came to go boating which was great with the kids. Stayed to order a plate of chips. After 1 hour, it still had't arrived. If it is going to take that long - it doesn't hurt to explain there is a long wait on food!

Fabulous location. For lunch on a sunny summers day arrive early. We prefer winter visits. Roasts are really good especially the Lamb, but they never seem to do roast chicken. They have a Helly Pad next door, but we haven't needed to use it yet :]

I was here to photograph a wedding. As most of the event happened in a marquee in the field at the back it is hard to evaluate the inn in all respects, but what we saw was good. Location: at the end of a mile and a half of cul-de-sac, right by the river Ouse. Boating available. Ambience: traditional large...
