Dining at The Anchor Inn

Our Head Chef, Damon Kitchen, uses only the finest local seafood, meat and vegetables and work very closely with our local suppliers to achieve exceptionally high standards of quality and fresh ingredients. Our scallops are always hand-dived and our lobsters and crab are potted daily by local fishermen less than a mile away from The Anchor! In addition to a wide range of seafood, we serve a variety of fresh local meat as well as vegetarian dishes.

Our menus are constantly changing due to the availability of produce and, for this reason, our menus are not printed but available on chalkboards all around the restaurant areas. Below is a sample of just some of the dishes we typically have available.

If you'd like to make a reservation, please telephone us on 01308 897228.
