user reviews of the Anchor Inn, Oxford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A really impressive building in the northern reaches of Jericho and by all repute, an excellent gastropub. That said, the bar, while perhaps a bit smart, was well populated on a Good Friday with hot cross buns atop the counter. So busy was it, that we were forced to decamp to the dining area with our drinks. One can imagine that in some places, this would be frowned upon - not here, where a friendly waiter made us feel welcome.

I am not a big fan of gastro pubs, so good job this is a place serving really great food, rather than the dreaded gastro. Really liked the atmosphere in here and have eaten here maybe half a dozen times - always really good food. Good range of beers and wines, and still a 'pub pub' in places

The Anchor has managed to hit a happy medium with a new, though reasonable priced menu with a good selection of equally good food. The new management seems to be catering to the influx of young families now living in the developments along the canal.

Although I miss the old atmosphere, overall The Anchor has been updated within moderate constraints and is a good alternative to the overly stuffy nearby "Gastro pubs," e.g., The Perch and The Trout.

Declaration of interest: this is our local. That said, under the new management (mid 2006) we've been here several times for lunch, dinner and breakfast (on may morning) and its been very good.
Its more of a food than drinking place, though they do still cater for casual drinkers. The food is generally excellent (often superb), the staff friendly and the atmosphere fine. Occasionally when busy the wait has been long. At lunchtimes they cater well for children too though there's no play area.
