Lovely meal, varied menu and great food. We sat outside under the canopy which was perfect for this time of year. Food also very reasonably priced for Oxford.
The bars staff upon entry where just messing around and one of them was on his mobile phone. They didn’t do kids menu so had to pay 32 pounds for to roast dinners for the kids. which is ridiculous. Food was ok but roast but portions were smelling considering the cost.
The food was good - great menu choice but sadly the service let the whole evening down.
Had to ask for drinks after waiting 30 mins after arrival - had to ask to place order- 5 meals arrived but 3 meals didn’t arrive - the waiter didn’t apologise or say anything.
We had to go over to the till to ask where they were as the waiter had disappeared.
The sides didn’t arrive at all
Very very disappointing for a celebration meal
Excellent food, very slow service but would go back.
Food was disappointing. The service was casual at best by what seemed like a bunch of 16 year olds who knew nothing about service and laughed raucously behind the bar. Thus the ambiance was poor. A shame as we’d had high hopes.
Fun place to have brunch. Décor a bit basic but food well presented and tasty. Friendly staff
Great food choice, lovely garden area. Ordering everything in the app including extra drinks is painful. It would be nice to have more staff interaction!
Delicious al fresco lunch with friends at The Anchor. Great atmosphere and service.
Waitress was lovely - knew menus of food and drinks with good recommendations.
Lovely outdoor space. Tables rather narrow and benches not very comfortable but food and service v good
Lovely meal great service. Would be good if they could offer a vegan nut free option if possible.
Pleasant surprise .
Attentive service and tasty sharing platter.
Very friendly staff .
Really easy to book, turn up and eat a delicious range of food. Good veggie options and relaxing atmosphere.
Not too many people, not too much noise - a very pleasant setting in which to have a drink on a Sunday evening.
Lovely atmosphere and really good food. Will go again!
Slow service, food was cold but very good when it was replaced. Dissaointing experience.
Lovely pizza. Quite a long wait for it though. Also slow service for the drinks. HATE the app for ordering etc and surely they miss out as we were never going to add more drinks etc later on!
Great food and service. Impressive menu and all v pleasant
Amazing food and service!
We absolutely loved our meal at The Anchor. The outdoor seating area is great, even on a wetter day and the staff were excellent (really made a fuss of our baby, which we loved!). The food was also delicious and they were very good with allergies. A great experience overall and we will be back!
Another enjoyable evening outdoors at The Anchor- lovely staff, reasonably priced menu and great atmosphere.
One of us had special requirements and these were not only fulfilled, but additional suggestions and substitutions were made by the chef. Much appreciated!
I have been to the Anchor a number of times and am never disappointed. The staff are so friendly and helpful, I can’t wait for my next visit.
Always a lovely time. Food and service faultless. Love the outdoor space they’ve added; hope it is permanent! Great ambiance. Love that you can order through the table and your phone. Also liked that the Covid precautions are still in place. Staff wearing masks etc. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Excellent paella. Friendly and quick service. Clean and nice environment. Music gave good atmosphere. Tapas dishes a bit overpriced but on the whole excellent evening.
Good distanced outdoor seating under cover. Lovely lamb kebab on house-made flatbread. Delicious. Easy to order via QR code link to website -- fast service.
Lovely food - only disappointment was chicken mezze had very small salad and only 3 bits of chicken and chicken was not hot. But everything else was really fab and staff were excellent
We loved the Anchor before Brexit/Covid, and we are willing to accept issues related to these new challenges. But the food is expensive and the last two times that we have eaten there we have not felt that it was worth it. Our table was in the blazing sun and the staff would not move us to one of the many empty tables. And the food was not good enough- e.g. monkfish felt like it lived most its life in a freezer, dry hamburger drenched in sauce. I have had some good salads in the past- I remember the baby gem with a dijon dressing. But now its old greens without any dressing - yet some how soggy. Finally, portion size has gone down since re-opening.
The Anchor has a beautiful outside dining area with well spaced seating. The service from the staff is warm and professional. This was not my first time at The Anchor and every time I’m blown away by how good the food is.
Chicken burger was excellent, although service was just okay. Took ages for a jug of water to come, although I understand if this is because of crowdedness.
The Anchor is my neighbourhood pub and I have been eating here for 25 years through several different owners - that speaks for itself, I think.
Delicious tacos. Nice vibes!
Currently offering a limited but good quality menu. Well organised and friendly.
Piers is a legend
Unfortunately we came for dinner and had to leave without ordering as there were insufficient vegetarian options
Very good all round. Staff very helpful and friendly. Great Tacos and nice drinks selection.
The food was really disappointing. Dessert served in a plastic cup!
Had a lovely lunch with colleagues in the outside space at the Anchor. There was ample room both in the open air and under canvas shades. Ordering was easy and food was lovely. Nice quiet but convivial ambience. Will be back!
The Anchor is just ace.
It has the best outdoor seating area (loads of space and cover, plus nice twinkling fairy lights and heaters to make it cosy) which is why we almost always choose to go there over anywhere else! Good food and drinks selection (love the halloumi fries, and very happy that it offers Beefeater Blood Orange gin), and friendly staff.
Very lucky that The Anchor is our local!
Staff were friendly and helpful, food was hot and tasty, what else can I say but thank you.
