Recent family meal out here...service was attentive to start with (one could argue that you are unable to order the minute you sit down and have just opened the menu)...We asked for our children's meals to come as soon as they could...the food only appeared after we asked for it 4 times and then it was undercooked - both the...

The Bell and Anchor are a very dependable restaurant to go to for their excellent 4 course Sunday Buffet. We have previously been and ordered a la carte as well and thoroughly enjoyed that too. What my friends and I like about their Sunday Buffet is one can decide on the spur of the moment to join. No reservations necessary... More

A family member recently held their wedding reception at this Restuarant and the service and food was excellent. The staff were very helpful and obliging. The only drawback was that at about 9p.m. a beach bar some two doors away pumped up their music and created a disruptive ambiance. Othereise very good.

We stopped in for lunch. The food was full of flavour and it has a great relaxing feel with the Sea Views from the restaurant. The reason for my rating of 3 out of 5, was because the one meal said one element was prawns and we actually had shrimps and the Lamb Shank was a bit small for the... More

The drinks order was taken and arrived promptly. We had starters (Peri-Peri Chicken Liver), 3x Main Course (Lamb Curry, 6 Prince Prawns and Calamri Steak). For an in-betweener we had... More

Hi Pratibha please accept our apologize. Our supplier delivered the ice cream yesterday and only after we saw your complaint online did we examine it and have ascertained that the ice cream was partially melted when they delivered it . Are you still in the area? Can we invite you back for 2 complimentary desserts? Thank you for letting us... More
