We have been visiting the Anchor for about 25 years!
And it is still as good value & excellent food as ever.
There was as ever a good choice of dishes, beef, pork, steak & ale pie, lamb shank, chicken in mushroom sauce & belly pork to list all I can remember.
& help your self to roasties, mash & vegetables, & of course a Yorkshire pudding if you would like one

Been here many times over many years and in terms of quality, quantity and value for money the food and service is the best. This is a must for anyone visiting the York, Harrogate, Wetherby area. You will quite simply not be disappointed
