We had an excellent meal here in July 2011. Our party of eight all enjoyed the lunch - the food was superb and the service, first class. They have got a nice little keg beer here, too. Five stars!

The two of us went searching for the Anchor as we were asked by friends to find out if it would be a nice place to stay when they visit Fenland later in the year. We hadn't booked and the place was reasonably busy given that the road was partially closed due to the floods. After a nice friendly welcome followed by a glass of merlot and a pint, we settled down to read the interesting lunchtime menu, so reasonable at £10.95. We liked the scrubbed pine tables and the feel of the place, cosy and atmospheric. We were warned that there would be a delay of ten minutes or so as they were busy but, in fact, we were there an hour and a half before seeing any food. (Other later arrivals were served before us which made us wonder... and then the waitress admitted that our order had been overlooked). Once the starters eventually arrived, they were nice, baby figs and goat's cheese and smoked salmon on blinis. The main courses weren't so good. I had a vegetarian dish with pine nuts and parmesan in pastry, which was not seasoned enough and was quite bland, and it was garnished with exactly the same salad leaves as the starter which was disappointing. My husband had chicken crumble which he said was too dry, hardly any sauce in it and not browned off on top so it looked rather anaemic. We then got the bill and had been charged for a pint of beer and a glass of merlot that we hadn't had! Oh dear.

Having said all that, we actually liked the place a lot and will go back for another lunch as well as having dinner with our friends when they visit. It just had a really lovely feel about it and I don't think our long wait and slightly disappointing mains were indicative of what they usually achieve there. So all in all, worth another visit.
