Welcome to The Anchor
A little bit about us:

The Anchor is an award-winning inn and restaurant-with-rooms. We are fortunate to be in the charming village of Walberswick across the footbridge from the market town of Southwold.

We want to create a village local that is both family friendly and a welcome retreat for all who enjoy good conversation, food and drink.
Great effort is put into enthusiastically sourcing fine ingredients, local and global beers as well as flavoursome characterful wines.

Our ten bedrooms including six spacious eco-clad cedar garden chalets, offer a bolthole for relaxation and the beach on your doorstep.

The flint barn at the side of the Anchor is perfect private parties, events, conferences and celebrations. It has underfloor heating as well as a drop-down screen and projector for business meetings. It is often put to good use in the cause of village-based charity fundraising projects as well as our August beer festival and numerous art exhibitions.
