    Insane portion sizes. Come with a hearty appetite. The fish and chips was delicious, with flaky insides and crisp batter. The ketchup was a different variety to your regular Heinz, which was a pleasant surprise. The Christmas burger and Steak are highly recommended as well. Try a battered Gherkin if you haven’t already! The interior is very comfortable, especially the red booths. The service could have been a bit more attentive in the beginning, especially considering our group size, but was otherwise fine. Will be coming back on my next walk from Blakeney.

    I recently had the “pleasure” of dining at the Anchor, and I must say it felt like a culinary time warp back to the notorious bad old days of English pub grub. The quality of the food made the average Wetherspoon’s look like it deserves a Bib Gourmand. The only vegetarian option on the menu, the “cauliflower steak” (and the sole item not deep-fried), was mysteriously unavailable, but to be honest the fact that a cauliflower steak is even a thing makes most vegetarians cry a little inside. This left one starter to pick from - the mozzarella stick – a truly gargantuan foot-long piece of cheese. As a self proclaimed cheese lover, and someone who will regularly consume a cheese fondue for two solo, I was intimidated. It was as if someone had mistaken quantity as the only requirement. For a pub that seemingly prides itself on its fish and chips, the chips were a soggy travesty, presumably from a prolonged bath in old or underheated fat. The fish might have been a distant relative of something aquatic, but it was hard to tell under the thick, oily armor of batter. The overall experience was one of those rare occasions where the meal was so bad, it becomes a story worth telling. At the end of the meal my wife (who is less British than I) did suggest areas for improvement. The staff were very nice about it, and have to say did a good job serving up the food (even if they did so with a raised eyebrow when laying down a kilo of cheese as a starter) and did offer a discount which was appreciated. It’s a pity, really, because the pub clearly has a history of better days - many of the reviews in the past were exception and one of the reasons we choose the pub. Here’s to hoping the Anchor is due for a renaissance soon – we can all appreciate a comeback story.

    Wonderful location, but sadly dire inside - the food was horrendous; huge portions, everything deep fried, and tasting of cooking oil. Chips undercooked. Staff were nice - manager however was not very hospitable, huffing because we didn’t have a booking despite the restaurant being empty, then talking over the bar staff and I when we were having a conversation. A real shame as used to be one of the greats, and a fantastic location in a lovely village. Here’s hoping for change.

    Saw this place advertised in a local magazine and decided to give it a go. The staff were great, the vibe of the venue was really lovely. We chose to sit in the cosy bar area rather than the restaurant. There isn't many options on the menu but it's an eat-in fish and chip shop. However, the food is really good. The chef was accommodating to our needs. Would return if over that way again!

    Friendly and welcoming traditional pub with a flagstone floor, low lighting and (slightly sticky) tables. There's a small range of lagers and ales on offer. The menu is mostly different types of fish and chips. If you sit in the restaurant the food comes on plates, if you sit in the bar it comes in cardboard boxes. The chips are very good but the highlight for us were the deep fried cadburys cream eggs! They are amazing!
