Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
High Street, Canewdon, Nr. Rochford, SS4 3QA
England have such a long-standing reputation for the supernatural as Canewdon. Tales of witchcraft and ghosts abound, so it's unsurprising that a visit to village pub, The Anchor, involves meeting a witch or two (puppets and model witches are dotted around the cosy interior). Here, you can enjoy a great-value meal in the restaurant, or relax at the bar with a drink. Tuck into a rib-eye steak for £7.95 or order two meals for just £10. There's a specials board offering further variety and two real ales to take advantage of. The team at The Anchor hold a beer festival every year, featuring eight to ten ales, as well as hosting regular open mic nights, a quiz every month and occasional live music. This lovely pub caters for all types of parties; fancy-dress Halloween night is a particular locals' favourite.
