General Comments
We booked a table for 4 at the Anchor Inn, on the basis of an imaginative menu shown on the website. This menu did not exist in the restuarant itself, which was simply expensive pub grub. Whilst the meat was passable, it was accompanied by a lump of toasted bread (allegedly bruschetta), overcooked wild mushrooms, uncooked chunky chips, and was so dry, it was difficult to eat. Spicy chicken supreme was neither spicy, or supreme. Deserts were evidently from frozen, with a treacle sponge of bathroom sponge texture. And the Coffee was instant! On complaining, managerial staff were incredibly rude and no discount was offered. 'No-one has ever complained before' was the response, and I felt like I was being told that I knew nothing about food. Being a trained chef and food and wine critic, this was most annoying! What happened to the customer always being listened too? An awful restaurant on the tourist track into Derbyshire! Open this restaurant in my home county, and it would be closed within weeks!
