The Anchor is a contemporary pub on the waterfront of the River Crouch. Located within the charming Essex countryside, the pub is surrounded by acres of green belt farmland and a nature reserve, which provides a picturesque backdrop for drinking and dining.
The main draw? Its stunning beer garden and terrace which acts as a suntrap in summer months. Meanwhile, the indoor Orangery offers floor-to-ceiling glass windows, giving its guests stunning views of the river bank wherever they sit. If you're craving a bite to eat, explore the menu of seasonal plates including classic breakfasts, Sunday roasts, burgers and healthier options. Of course, there's plenty of booze to wash everything down with too, whether you're in the mood for cocktails, bubbles or handpicked bottles.
