Why, oh why has The Blue Anchor changed its name to the ------ what? 1725?

It was the Blue Anchor for DECADES.

It makes you wonder whether the Brewery - no, sorry the " Leisure Properties Incorporated " or whatever they are called that are the owners of this formerly
fine, olde establishment that lies in the Heart of this " Historic City " REALLY
KNOW what they are doing - or are they being led by-the-nose by their Company Section that routinely refurbs every one of their premises regardless of whether it need doing-up - or not doing up.

Hey, the costs of the refurbs go onto the price of OUR drinks /food - so why not ? After all - they have kids & mortgages too......

But that's not really my concern - the quality of drink, & of the food & the clientele - IS , however.

A totally pointless move - and for continuity go & look at York in the "The Shambles " area. The pubs etc etc there DO NOT get refurbed every 3rd year or whatever -- and the place is buzzing with Tourists looking for an Olde Worlde vibe .

Oh My God!!!!!! The anchor was always a bit naff, but ok for a quiet drink. What the hell is going on here 1725, is that the name or the price of a pint?? Total shocker, full of posing idiots.

Avoid this place.

We visited on a Saturday evening for food. Even though the temperature outside was boiling hot, all the windows were closed, which coupled with a lack of air conditionning made the place uncomfortably hot.

Our food arrived very quickly (within about 5 minutes), a bit too quickly for my liking, which probably means it was heated up rather than cooked fresh.

One dish (chorizo) was severly undercooked meaning that it was so tough it was literally impossible to bite through a piece.

The remainder of the food was of a poor standard - dry, chewy chicken and sauces with no flavour.

We asked the see the dessert menu but it never appeared so had to go and find one ourselves. We waited 25 minutes before we noticed the staff taking the desserts in the display counter back to the kitchen (probably to be displayed again the following day).

We then resorted to enquiring about the missing dessert and no explanation or apology was offered, only that they would remove it from the bill. How nice of them!

When we pointed out that we had been unable to eat the chorizo we received a somewhat blank response and had to ask for it to be removed from the bill.

A large propoertion of staff were either rude, arrogant or simply ignored you.

I'll say it again, avoid this place.

Recently been completely renovated and is now called '1725' - more of a restaurant now than a pub but much better than it was.

Not a bad pub, the last reviewer got it pretty much spot on 5/10
