====== ABOUT US ======

The Anchor is a traditional quayside pub run by a tight knit team more like a small family.

About us
The building dates back to the 18th century and has an old-world charm with dark wood furniture, flagstone floors and roaring fires. Standing or propped around the bar are a cast of regulars talking about renovating boats, scraping bottoms and other seafaring pastimes.

The menu is a mixture of English staples such as slow roast pork belly and Gressingham duck breast, and more exotic offerings such as Istana lamb curry with basmati rice, or seared wood pigeon. All are simply excellent and enjoyed in the lively atmosphere created by a mixture of young and old people ...

Anchor Food
I used to drink in this pub during a misspent youth and back then it was always full of colourful characters including amongst others Glass Eyed Eddie who would pop his glass eye into visitors drinks in order to gain a freebie and Gripper Grant the local footie hooligan (There was only one, its a small town). It was also frequented by all of the local residents of the boats on the nearby river.
Returning now I was thrilled to see that the pub which now serves fantastic food in very nice candlelit rooms at the back of the pub, still retains a local feel and the bar was full of local characters albeit significantly more normal than those I remember, the bar was alive with conversation, tall tales and laughter without the interruption of piped music or fruit machines and local ales were being quaffed with enthusiasm. Please do yourself a favour if you are visiting and pop in to find the real Woodbridge
