There's no denying that The Anchor is a wonderful pub. Set on the banks of the Colne river with its own moorings, the restaurant offers stunning views all year round. Oystercatchers, curlews, great crested grebe and cormorants are some of the variety of birds that can be seen from the conservatory and terrace.

The pub is warm and cosy with an open fire and promises a wonderful welcome from friendly staff. Try one of the chef's wholesome, homemade meals from an ever-changing blackboard menu listing traditional, seasonal options. Everything is homemade and ingredients are sourced locally, where possible. Fish and chips is popular at The Anchor, and other options such as swordfish and scallops appear on the specials board. Save room for pudding; try the popular cheesecake, the warm bread and butter pudding, or the deliciously sweet treacle tart. The Sunday lunch has drawn a dedicated following, and it's easy to see why - indeed, many have said that it's a roast dinner that their mothers would be proud of.

Dine al fresco on the river terrace in the warmer months. On colder days, snuggle up in the conservatory restaurant and look out across the beautiful river and beyond, while tucking into a scrumptious, hearty meal.

There's nowhere in Essex quite like The Anchor in Rowhedge, with its special position on the banks of the River Colne. Many diners are willing to travel to sample the treats that this pub offers, and it's common for first time visitors to become regulars, drawn back by the great food and home from- home atmosphere.
