Welcome to The Anchor

A little bit about us:

In September 2004 we decided to buy the lease on the Anchor and set about restoring its fortunes. We wanted to create a village local that would be both family friendly and a welcome retreat for all who enjoy good conversation, food and drink.

Back in 1981, Mark and Sally Cruickshank revived the fortunes of The White Horse at Parson's Green, aka 'The Sloaney Pony' and won The London Evening Standard Award in 1990. It was dubbed 'Beer Central' and Mark is co-founder of The Beer Academy.   We have over 50 bottles of imported beer from around the globe.

The flint barn at the side of the Anchor had been e convered into another space for eating, private parties, events, conferences and celebrations.

We equipped the barn with a drop-down screen, a projector for business meetings and presentations. It has been put to good use in the cause of village based charity fund raising projects as well as cask beer festivals and art exhibitions.
