Anchor (Hullbridge) Reviews
Newest Review: ... table had been placed in the garden, over which the children were fighting for a turn! Now to the inside of the pub. The Anchor is a very child friendly pub .There is a large adult bar ,in which children are tolerated. It is of course probably more sensible to take them into the children’s room. Here a no smoking policy is adopted, unlike the main bar, so this is another reason not to ... more

The new style is modern and comfortable and the staff are learning on the job quickly under good supervision.Food is tasty and well presented in a modern way. It doesnt always look as if the portions will be sufficient but are remarkably filling and tasty.Aimed more at visitors than local residents perhaps, but very modern and clean.Could be more welcoming but that'll come with time I guess.

Nice looking restaurant and waitresses were very nice and polite. Menu prices grossly overpriced, quality and quantity of food rubbish. I paid £17 for a ribeye steak and chips which was inferior by far to one I would pay £4 for at a roadside cafe. My girlfriend had chicken pot au feu. The chicken was so dry and overcooked that she couldn't eat it. We were offered a small bowl of treats and coffee as compensation but ended up getting charged for the coffee's which we didn't really want anyway and which tasted very weak watery. Very disappointed as it was meant to be a special meal to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. Would not recommend coming here for a meal at all unless things are improved substantially!

You have not had a review since 2001 on the Anchor in Hullbridge, its had a revamp it is no longer a warm welcoming, family friendly pub, but an over made up glossy, gastro pub, done up like a dogs dinner, overpriced, with an all singing all dancing super chef!! who does not cater for vegetarians as the Anchor use to. Hullbridge needs a pub for the locals, not for a load of trendies, with more money than sense GIVE US BACK OUR LOCAL!!!!

The Anchor I’m a great believer in finding something to do on a weekend to keep the kids amused. Trips to the park, the beach- always well received. But what do you find to do when the weathers lousy? There are of course many indoor amusements, such as the library, play centres and swimming pools. One of my favourites, and not because I’m a self confessed lover of wine, has to be a trip to a good pub with the kids ! And it’s a good opportunity to get other friends and family together. This is what we did on a dreary, very wet Sunday, a few weeks ago. We organised to meet up with some other members of the family and headed off to the ... Read the complete review

"Let's go out for the day!" was the cry when the sun poked its head out from behind a cloud, and threatened to provide a 'nice day' for a drive. But where to go? Living in Southend there's sea on two sides (and the beach is too damned busy in the sunny Easter holidays), countryside to the north, or London to the west. So countryside it was. We packed up our 10 month old daughter and grabbed a couple of friends who were raving about this place in Hullbridge, a village on the south bank of the river Crouch. They had taken their two year old there a few weeks ago and loved it, so we set off. The Anchor pub is right on ... Read the complete review
