The previous reviews are now out of date as the pub has just been taken over by the owner of Drake's Restaurant, almost opposite. It reopened a few weeks ago having had a makeover. OK, this site is to comment on beer in the evening but I visited at lunchtime! 3 real ales on: Timothy Taylor's Landlord, Tillingbourne Black Troll, and Greene King IPA. I don't drink GK, I had a taste of the Black Troll, but settled for a pint of Landlord. Very refreshing if served a little cold for bitter.£4 a pint (I don't think I've had to pay that before for a pint of Landlord outside of London!) The staff were very friendly although it took them quite a time to bring salt and mayonnaise for my chips. I also had a cup of almond soufflé soup, whatever that is. Tasted fine. Don't think they will be serving pie and mash in the near future. For an evening drink and meal I imagine it would be quite comfortable. The tables are not cramped together and one area of the bar has a wood-burning stove. I visited because I live in the village but the prices are just about high enough to dissuade me from visiting regularly!

AVOID - 29th June 2013 approx. 8pm. Sign outside advertised 'real ales' but inside the only things on tap were lagers (seeming to cater for the group of loud male 'locals' dominating the bar). After opting for a bottle of white wine instead we were told that our choice from the wine list wasn't available, but an alternative was suggested - but it was warm. They didn't have any chilled wine . It's incredulous to believe that a pub can operate on the 'Fawlty Towers' business model in 2013. I can't see this place keeping its doors open for too long.

A group of ten of us, all aged above 50, decided to visit the Anchor on Ripley High Street on Sunday 23/6/13 at 19.30 hrs. The barman was unable to complete the first drink because he ran out of lemonade, we then asked what ales he had and he said that he had just sold the last available pint. We thought he must be joking but no he had no beer at all.
There was no apology for this so we went to find a proper pub.
Needless to say we will not be visiting this pub again

Hey! It's open again. Had a bit of a refurb and looks tidier but not all that different (a good thing IMO). Nice to see it back when so many pubs are closing for good.

Only had a quick pint, can't remember what, but it was acceptable.

It's a shame BITE doesn't start a new rating when new management turns up. These poor sods now have to try to turn a 4.4 rating from 21 people into something that reflects the true state of the pub they have pumped money into. For that reason I'm giving a 10 just to try to redress the balance a bit.

Pub closed "until further notice" and sign says lease available to rent.
