A former smugglers inn, The Anchor Inn Pub and Restaurant has received something of an update in recent years, after friends Rowan and Harry took the helm (apologies for the boat-related pun).
Good food, good beer and a friendly atmosphere ensure that everyone feels welcome, whether you simply want to sit and warm up with a pint beside the roaring fire in the ‘Old Pub’, or you are out with the family celebrating a special occasion with a meal in the contemporary and stylish new Restaurant.
Produce is sourced as locally as possible (the meat, for example, is supplied by award-winning Rutland Butchers) and Harry likes to experiment with well-loved pub classics, updating them with a modern twist. All dishes offer excellent value for money.
As you’d hope with its proximity to the coast, seafood and fish features heavily. However, vegetarians will not be left wanting and Children have a selection of their own dishes to choose from. There are tasty specials that change daily and The Anchor does a fabulous, traditional Sunday lunch.
Drinks-wise, The Anchor has an impressive selection of real ales, including a variety of local brews (for example Woodforde’s, Winters and Adnams). There is a well-balanced and competitively priced wine list that perfectly complements the food coming out of the kitchen.
The Beer Garden seats 30-40 and is a perfect little suntrap infused with the sea air on summer days.
As if the promise of great hospitality, food and beer weren’t enough, The Anchor is conveniently situated on the coast road, and the Coasthopper bus service stops right outside. The Inn is partnered with Temples Seal Trips, which operate from the Quay, taking trips to Blakeney Point to view the seals and migrant birds. Temple’s Seal Trip tickets can be purchased from the bar of The Anchor. That’s a fabulous day out in north Norfolk planned for you, right there. Marvellous.
The Anchor is open daily 9am – late.
Food is served 12noon-3pm and 6pm-9m (until 8.30pm on Sun).
Sunday Lunch is served from 12noon-8pm during high season. Early closing at 5pm on a Sunday during the Winter months.
The Anchor Inn is Dog friendly.
The Anchor is available to hire for private parties, weddings and functions.
