    We have been in this pub before but hadn't eaten there. It's been refurbished recently so we thought we'd try it. The food we had for lunch was excellent and we had a smoked fish sharing platter with a portion of triple cooked chips. Another person with us had the crayfish sandwich in rosé Marie sauce. There was plenty of everything and it was freshly prepared. It was all reasonably priced. We were made to feel welcome and would definitely eat there again.

    The Anchor is a real stalwart in Woodbridge. Great pub with a great pub menu that really punches. Had beer battered haddock and chips. The fish was fresh, firm and tasty and the batter was incredibly crisp. Perfect pub for great steaks - their rib eye is amazing, fish and curries. Desserts are delicious too

    This looks like a small pub but it has restaurant rooms behind the bar. All tables were booked but we managed to squeeze in early as we did not plan to linger after eating. The food was excellent, one of the nicest curries I have eaten. (I can't remember the name of it.) Staff were very helpful.
