Meal for 2, Burwell
Donated by The Achor Burwell
THIS IS AN ADDITIONAL GIFT
“The generous, unpretentious Anchor in Burwell, an ordinary Fenland village which has a pub worth going out your way for” Good Food Guide, September 2018
“They don’t skimp on their servings” The Michelin Guide, May 2018
Drive up to the Anchor and you’ll notice the old dilapidated signs and the broken fences, you would think the place wasn’t loved and you certainly wouldn’t have any great expectations about what goes on beyond the walls. The exterior hasn’t been changed for 3 different sets of landlords – we’re not sure why, the pubco can answer that question. But for those of you who can look past the aesthetics you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
There’s the warmth, friendliness and attentiveness of the staff and of course Bluebell the pub dog who’ll annoy the life out of you expecting you to throw the smallest bit of leaf for her.
YOU WILL RECEIVE A 2 COURSE MEAL FOR 2 WITH 2 DRINKS
The weekly changing menu has just enough choice for you and for the small kitchen to cope with given that it is all freshly prepared every day. The food is primarily why you venture here – you can expect big flavour, skilled cooking and a plentiful plate from Benjamin, one of the landlords who’s 25 years’ experience shines through – but don’t tell him though, he’s very humble.
You will be sitting on mismatched chairs and at tables sometimes propped up to stop a wobble and our staff wear clothes that they feel comfortable in. We don’t do pretentiousness, we just have a good quality old-fashioned soul.
