Called in for coffee and a snack and was made to feel very welcome. The coffee was just how I like it and my chicken , bacon and avocado wrap was delicious, will definitely be back next time I visit Barmouth 10/10

The Anchor is now under new ownership; having been regular customers of the Anchor in the past, my wife and I were pleased to see this picturesque harbour side restaurant rejuvenated - decluttered with an exciting new menu. We enjoyed an early evening dinner with attentive and friendly service with a cosy atmosphere - and will certainly return here again... More

We stumbled across this lovely little place whilst visiting Barmouth on a very cold Sunday afternoon. Being quite late in the day we wern't to sure if it was open but once inside we were greeted with such a warm welcome. Decor is stunning.. With beautiful lights intwined in branches over the ceiling, lovely candles & pictures too. The owner... More

Eat at the restaurant last night and had a thoroughly enjoyable dinner. The food was plentiful and cooked well, my pate and the fish pie were superb. The wine was very good value and the service very good despite the restaurant being full for most of the time we were there. Will certainly visit there again when in Barmouth.

A lot of other pubs and restaurants had stopped serving but The Anchor was open and I'm really glad we found it. Good food and friendly staff.

I am surprised by some of the negative comments. 12 of us ate last night, all had starters and main meals, all of us really enjoyed them. The waitress couldn't have been more attentive and friendly.

The restaurant offered very poor service. The food was very poor as well - greasy and unappetizing. The house wine was absolutely undrinkable, and when I mentioned it, they nodded as if they understood, but charged us anyway.
