The Anchor on the side of the river Thames was originally built in 1615. Samuel Pepys watched the Great Fire of London from here and Doctor Johnston wrote part of his dictionary!
As a Taylor Walker pub, we are proud to offer freshly prepared British pub food and high quality drinks. With experienced and friendly staff, whether you are a cask ale fan, love a chilled glass of white wine or a freshly ground cup of coffee, we will serve you in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
Join us for a classic British dish such as hand battered cod, chips and mushy or garden peas, a juicy rump steak burger and chips or a roast of the day seven days a week. Our pub food is freshly prepared and includes all your favourites. We also offer a range of sandwiches and jacket potatoes, all served by our welcoming and friendly team.
We have many offers to choose from including our unique fish and chip shop inside The Anchor, for either eat in or take away. We also have a private dining room for a maximum of 18 persons in The Shakespeares Room. Our first floor restaurant offers an A La Carte choice, serving traditional British food and our Terrace Bar overlooks St Pauls and the River Thames.

Raining and in search of a pub that was not packed on a Friday night, we came to The Anchor. Crap service as the bartender spilled the beer on two people in my group hitting the tap as he lifted it over the counter. No apology. Crap beer as it tasted .... bad. Relatively empty and a dirty bathroom. Find somewhere else.more
I remember this place of old before the Borough was fashionable and before they built the ghastly hotel on the back and the extension by the garden. It was worth a visit then. It isn't any more.

The food is terrible and they don't make it easy to order either. Last night, they were randomly closing bars and directing patrons to other bars to order food. After being redirected twice, we gave up and were...more
Given it's location, this is obviously a touristy pub. Still, it's got some good ambiance and a view that can't be beat if you're sitting outside on a warm afternoon.
