The Anchor Pub & Restaurant

This wonderful freehouse was saved from decrepitude when it was purchased by a village co-opererative several years ago. The village people (no, not the ones you're thinking of) then invested time, love & money turning the anchor into one of the most beautiful pubs that you are likely to see.

So, our landlords are our neighbours. It doesn't get much more independent than that!

With no large corporations involved we are able to offer a product & service that you would expect to find in a family run business; quality, honesty & value.

The surrounding area of the Anchor Inn includes such local attractions as the Badbury rings roman fortress & the National Trust’s awe inspiring Kingston Lacy House to name just two. There are many wonderful walks for those whom don the hiking boots or for the more casual dog walkers alike (we even have our own dog biscuits if you forget your own…or your dogs)!

All in all, every one is welcome at the Anchor Inn & we very much look forward to seeing you.
