Quayside pub

Our 18th Century traditional quayside pub is situated in the picturesque town of Woodbridge in Suffolk.

Cask Ales

We serve a selection of Greene King cask ales and have been awarded the Cask Marque for their quality. We have great wines too!

Great food

All our meals are prepared fresh each day depending on the local seasonal produce available and often our dishes have an Asian slant.

All year round

Enjoy great food and drink in front of a roaring open fire or basking in the sun in the courtyard garden. A friendly welcomes awaits you.

A friendly welcome awaits you...

Great beers, a friendly warm welcome, food that you would expect in a good British hostelry with additional dishes that reflect our backgrounds and passion

Vernon Blackmore and the team have now been at the Anchor for ten years, our offer has developed into what we feel a quayside pub should be. Great beers, a friendly warm welcome, food that you would expect in a good British hostelry with additional dishes that reflect our backgrounds and passion.
We want you to feel the history in the Pub so we have been very careful not to remove the old charm and character, the floor tiles may have been professionally cleaned, but they are still a bit wobbly and remind you of the sailors that have spilt beer on them in the past.

However a pub is about people so come and enjoy it with us and let us welcome you in.

    We have been in this pub before but hadn't eaten there. It's been refurbished recently so we thought we'd try it. The food we had for lunch was excellent and we had a smoked fish sharing platter with a portion of triple cooked chips. Another person with us had the crayfish sandwich in rosé Marie sauce. There was plenty of everything and it was freshly prepared. It was all reasonably priced. We were made to feel welcome and would definitely eat there again.

    The Anchor is a real stalwart in Woodbridge. Great pub with a great pub menu that really punches. Had beer battered haddock and chips. The fish was fresh, firm and tasty and the batter was incredibly crisp. Perfect pub for great steaks - their rib eye is amazing, fish and curries. Desserts are delicious too

    This looks like a small pub but it has restaurant rooms behind the bar. All tables were booked but we managed to squeeze in early as we did not plan to linger after eating. The food was excellent, one of the nicest curries I have eaten. (I can't remember the name of it.) Staff were very helpful.
