Cockwood, Nr. Exeter, EX6 8RA
In the riverside village of Cockwood sits The Anchor Inn. Not only does this bar and restaurant have 450 years of rich history, it also benefits from having one of the most beautiful and interesting locations on the coast - a whole day can easily be spent exploring the local sights. Overlooking the quaint harbour, the al fresco seating boasts stunning views across the landscape - if you're lucky, you might even spot the Torbay Express steam train. The village green is just steps away - home to the famed Cockwood geese - and the nearby historic bridges built by Brunel are a sight to be seen.

Thanks to its setting, The Anchor specialises in fresh seafood. The menu features a scrumptious selection of pub favourites, generous seafood platters, fine meats and vegetarian options, in addition to a lengthy list of mussels and scallops - the pub's speciality. Drinks offerings include an international selection of fine wines and real ales. Guests can dine in the restaurant, relax with a drink in one of the bar snugs, or utilise the Wheelhouse room which boasts a stage and is the ideal area to host a party or event.

This pub is said to have once been a regular haunt for seafarers and smugglers, a history which is honoured by the nautically themed decor. The unique charm of The Anchor sets it apart - be sure to visit and you'll see why
