See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The Anchor Inn was built in the 16th Century. Its long history is mostly shrouded in mystery but it was certainly a coaching inn with links to the sea.

On the west side of the inn, was a cobbled drive to the back of the building. This is probably where the horses were taken for stabling. It was also a vulnerable area to protect from attack, as shown by the arrow slit in the wall below the current bar.

Pay us a visit and feel the warmth of the stone hearth that has hosted people for more than a millennium, or have a drink on our south-facing terrace where the sun beams down from dawn to dusk … when it shines.
