Idyllically perched on the banks of the River Cam, The Anchor is as picturesque as Cambridge pubs come. 

It's River terrace is the perfect spot for alfresco lounging and dining come the steady summer months with an interior that transforms into a cosy den of warmth and countryside charm in the winter to a beautifully airy space come the summer. Dine in or out at this fabulous boozer and take advantage of its great location just moments away from the infamous Queen's College and it's Mathematical Bridge. If you're looking for an afternoon of quaint tinkering and laid-back boozing then this is your place. 

On Thursday evenings your dining experience here comes accompanied by a live Jazz band and other nights of the week boast open mic nights welcoming all manner of talents from music, singing, poetry, comedy and other entertainments.

The food philosophy here is simple - fresh, seasonal produce sourced locally to bring you only the best dishes and tastes. Classic pub grub is The Anchor's style, with a little country flare; so you'll find Wood Pigeon, Pigs Cheeks, Guinea Fowl, Trout, Duck, Sea Bass and Steak all gracing the menu. The drinks offering ranged from an extensive worlds Wine list to regular taps of Fellows, Black bar and Elgoods beers as well as independent craft beers.

A word from the chef:
Hearty gastro grub with a love for all things game, meat and fresh fish is what this kitchen is all about. Try their Berkshire pheasant breast or Pan-fried Sea bass fillet.
