A really lovely place with friendly, helpful staff and truly excellent fair. Well recommend it for a long weekend away in a romantically set village in an AONB in the West. Will definitely visit again soon.

After a really bad experience here at the end of August it was a great relief to find that the Hope and Anchor is back to its old self. Charming staff and reliable food - no wait for drinks either - very happy!
