They came out hot and on time , large amounts and good value, and quality . The waitress Hanna was fantastic and nothing was to much trouble. I can thoroughly... More

Eat at the restaurant last night and had a thoroughly enjoyable dinner. The food was plentiful and cooked well, my pate and the fish pie were superb. The wine was very good value and the service very good despite the restaurant being full for most of the time we were there. Will certainly visit there again when in Barmouth.

A lot of other pubs and restaurants had stopped serving but The Anchor was open and I'm really glad we found it. Good food and friendly staff.

I am surprised by some of the negative comments. 12 of us ate last night, all had starters and main meals, all of us really enjoyed them. The waitress couldn't have been more attentive and friendly.

The restaurant offered very poor service. The food was very poor as well - greasy and unappetizing. The house wine was absolutely undrinkable, and when I mentioned it, they nodded as if they understood, but charged us anyway.

Called for breakfast which sadly we had just missed. Great choice of food which all sounded amazing. We several meals from sandwiches, soup or a kids meal. The kids chicken nuggets seemed to be home made and my daughter demolished the lot. Each meal was fresh, flavoursome and a treat to eat. There was nothing about the visit we could... More

On a recent visit to The Anchor the food was good, service was good, prices were not to bad, apart from the fact that the fish and chips are advertised as £7.95 and we were then charged £12.95. On the board inside it stated £7.95 we were then charged £12.95 it has put us off going back there. The prices... More

My father in law had the suet pudding, which was very nice, although it had been microwaved. My Mother in law had the fish pie, which came with over... More
