Introducing The Anchor in Woodbridge

In the ten years that Vernon Blackmore and our hard-working team have been at the Anchor, what we offer has developed into a very personal feel of what we feel a quayside pub should be.

We want you to enjoy the history of The Anchor’s interior so we have been very careful not to remove the pub’s old charm and character. The antique floor tiles may have been professionally cleaned but they are still wonky and remind you of all those sailors and their spilt beer from centuries past.


Great beers, a friendly atmosphere, good food, all the things you would expect from a lovely British hostelry and exciting cooking reflecting our Asian heritage, global travels and our passion...

Over the years we have forged great relationships with passionate local producers to be able to bring you prime Suffolk ingredients, be it fish landed at the quayside or plump berries harvested just up the road where we get first dibs! And we are now having interesting vegetables grown especially for us so we can bring you an authentic taste of our Asian roots and complement Vernon’s famous curries.

We are proud to work with the support of Greene King brewery to bring you the best quality cask ales and we have recently invested in the latest cooling and beer dispense equipment for our 18th century cellar. So you are assured of a great pint, when you sup one of our real ales or other draught beers at The Anchor. And of course, we have a great range of delicious wines plus an interesting array of chilled non-alcoholic beers and soft drinks behind our well-stocked bar.

Welcome to The Anchor, far more than the good food and the setting, it's all about the people, so come on over...!

    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.
