testimonials

"Fantastico!!"
"I haven’t been here for about ten years when it was the Ancora. It was a great restaurant then and it’s even better now. Much better decor and the food was fantastic. The dishes were served hot and were very tasty. Plenty to eat; we didn’t need desserts after starters and main. The staff were very polite and cheerful. I will definitely be returning and I am so glad there is another great restaurant in Hadleigh."
