Situated in an idyllic coastal village, this bar and hotel caters for holidaymakers and locals alike. It has two cosy alcove areas heated by a fire on both sides with a side room for families and a spacious restaurant serving local produce plus a large garden. The pub is accessible from Southwold via footbridge or ferry. As well as Adnams ales, an extensive range of global bottled beers and craft ales are stocked. Accommodation is available in the main building or in garden chalets.

The current building was built to replace the Blue Anchor (dismantled in 1929 - see the note on the historical tab).

Landlord Mark Dorber runs regular Beer Academy courses and the couple also own the Stratford St Mary Swan.

Smugglers' tunnels have been identified leading to the Anchor.

Footnote

Blue is a heraldic colour of hope. The spare anchor at sea was often known as the hope anchor. "Anker" can also relate to a measurement of 8.5 gallons.
