"Lunch stop - After visiting Dean Heritage Centre decided to go to Tintern for lunch. The restaurant was busy and told we would have to wait 45 minutes which wasn’t a problem. However the food came out quite quickly. The tuna mayonnaise ciabatta with salad was lovely. Lovely place to sit outside and relax and as we had a three year old with us she was able to go to the adventure park area."
"Dog friendly pub - We visited one afternoon for a pint, very friendly, welcoming dogs and children. Good selection of well kept local beer on tap. Returned for evening meal the next day, generous portions, excellent menu and attentive staff"
"Child friendly - fab food - great staff - The day after a bank holiday you would expect The Anchor to be busy and it was. But even though the queue was long, the weather was gorgeous and the staff were cheerful and hard working. Maria in particular was super-friendly and super helpful. Our 3 year old had a fab time in the playground, and the chicken fajitas were to die for! It was jam packed inside and they were incredibly busy - it's very difficult to keep a smile on your face when your establishment is that crowded - but all the staff were ace. 10/10 would recommend to all!"
"Delicious food, amazing view, family friendly, gluten-free friendly!! - I don’t normally write reviews, but I also don’t normally go back to the same restaurant two days in a row on holiday because they’re so great. I would highly recommend The Anchor Inn for families, and anyone with food sensitivities. The staff is lovely, and they even have a playground for the littles."
