Located on the edge of Thornbury, just a 30-minute drive from the centre of Bristol, The Anchor Inn is a local community hub offering fantastic food and drinks. In fact, the ale selection is so impressive that the pub has received an award from CAMRA for its great quality.
Dating back to the 1600s, this friendly venue makes an inviting first impression thanks to the display of beautifully manicured hanging baskets and award-winning floral displays outside the pub. Inside you’ll find a relaxed, cosy atmosphere in the Snug Bar, which hosts regular events including craft workshops, and displays works from local artists. The restaurant is open from breakfast through to the evening, and serves a great selection of homemade dishes. Start with the likes of crisp whitebait with bread and butter, or perhaps the chilli beef nachos will take your fancy. To follow there’s an excellent selection of fresh fish dishes, including rainbow trout, sea bass, baked salmon fillet in sweet chilli sauce and homemade beer-battered cod. The pub classics are sure to delight, with options like homemade lasagne, vegetable and Brie Wellington and the chef’s special pie.
The extensive beer garden complete with children’s play area and boules piste makes this a great choice for families as well as couples and groups of friends. It’s dog-friendly too, so there’s every reason to pop by.
