Square Meal Review of The Anchor ?

Like a number of his Michelin-starred buddies across the land, Steve Drake (head man at Drake's Restaurant in Ripley) has decided to dip his toe into the world of gastropubs by taking on The Anchor – a brick-and-tiled town boozer not far from his auspicious eatery. Following a sympathetic refit, the pub now offers competent, unfussy cooking based on top-notch ingredients – think cured Loch Duart salmon with cucumber salad and crispy mussels, beef sirloin with miso béarnaise or roast saddle of venison with sweet potato and pickled blackberries. There are trendy snacks too (pollack croquettes with seaweed mayo), plus puds along the lines of caramelised apple custard with Granny Smith sorbet. Lunch is a tight little set menu (£15/19 for two/three courses), while sharing boards and roasts headline on Sundays. Also expect a decent selection of well-respected real ales and wines.
