I have lived in the village for 15 years, it was always a pokey dingy pub. It was refurbished an under new management but it's still just a pokey little pub with no atmosphere, unhelpful staff and lousy beer.

A pub with real history and character. Bar staff friendly and helpful, however went in on a Saturday lunchtime just for a drink, thought rather expensive for a glass of wine and a beer. Bar area refurbished, unfortunately with all the atmosphere of a dentists waiting room. This could be a super pub, needs a focal point like an open... More

It's a Tripadvisor Mystery Story:- “We don't do food!” says kaymo 2013, while Oldhamman says “New chef and well worth a try”. When we were arranging to meet up at the Blue Anchor with a cheery group of fellow leaflet-droppers for the local MP, I took a look at all the more recent Tripadvisor reviews. Naturally, the first question I... More

We found the Blue Anchor on trip advisor. Wanted to eat out Boxing day 2013 so drove up from Morecambe. Place definitely full of locals only. The pub might be quite nice and the beer wonderful but we didn't get to find out as they don't serve food! Why is this pub still on the restaurants list???!!!!

We hadn't visited the Blue Anchor for a while and after our last disappointing visit we decided to visit for lunch. First impressions were that the whole pub was cleaner, fresher and had far friendlier staff. The cask ales were well kept and prices average. The new owners are very friendly and courteous. The catering is carried out on a... More

We dined here last week while visiting Bolton Le Sands. Everyone was very friendly in this what looked like a nice newly refurbished pub/hotel. We went for dinner but found that not everything on the menu was available. Our first 2 choices were not so we ordered the steaks. We waited around 20mins for them to arrive. They were served...
