Called in for mid-week lunch. Menu is not very veggie friendly but helpful staff tried hard to find something for a vegan and provided an imaginative mixed salad (definitely not your average pub salad!) Well presented.

How to start, do I begin with the good or the bad. I think I'll start with the good. This is a complicated establishment offering fabulous food, a strong menu, reasonable ale, a wide selection of spirits, accomodation, it is well liked by locals and visitors, some great service and a friendly welcome. Now for the bad, the toilets are... More

Both had pies, they were fantastic. Food all prepared fresh and you can tell. If we lived in the area this would be my favourite place to eat

Food is great-- my wife had a bacon and brie burger that was quite generous, the starters were tasty and the brew and cider selection was great. This area is central to Hadrian's Wall's best hiking and attractions, that this would be a great place to end a day. I'd like to go back and try more items.

My partner and I dined here on two consecutive nights. We returned for the second night because we'd enjoyed our food on the first night and whilst the atmosphere was a little noisy it was tolerable. Our second visit was tortuous. The noise level from other groups was so bad it was impossible to have a proper conversation. The atmosphere... More

Called in for lunch, there was only 3 people in when we arrived but took 45 minutes for our food to arrive. The waitress was lovely we ordered scampi but when it arrived it was so well cooked it was difficult to put a fork into it without it flying of the plate so we used our fingers. The chips... More

I have just returned with a headache from one of the worst restaurant experiences I can remember. We reserved a table at the Anchor Hotel in preparation for a good meal and relaxing night. Unfortunately what I experienced was food of average quality ( salty chips and a small flaky fish). My experience was not helped by several large groups... More
