We've made the papers! 

We are very proud to have been choosen as

one of the 5 star eats in Somerset by the Somerset County Gazette

June 2024

"The Anchor Inn at Hillfarrance is a rare Somerset gem, having been owned and run by the same family for nearly 18 years. With an emphasis on fresh food and local produce, Laura and her team produce exciting, seasonal menus, offering interesting well thought out dishes. From their ‘small plates’ dishes, to Greek inspired gyros, fabulous homemade burgers using Exmoor farmed beef, not to mention their highly recommended Sunday roast and Famous Anchor homemade pies.

Looking after their customers is their top priority, which is why they’ve held a 5* food hygiene rating for some 15 years and why they so confidently offer gluten free and dairy free dishes as standard. Team Anchor pride themselves on their menu planning and the wider team’s menu knowledge that allows customers with allergens to feel safe when dining at the Anchor. 

Their attention to delivering professional, warm and friendly customer service, alongside first class dishes makes them one of Somerset’s best loved pubs. In fact, last week we informed them they’ve been shortlisted for Somerset County Gazette Pub of the Year. “Being in the same business for so many years has given us a wealth of experience, an opportunity to evolve steadily and really understand our very loyal customers.” said Laura Magee, owner and manager of the Anchor Inn."
