See where Samuel Pepys watched the Great Fire of London from and Doctor Johnston wrote part of his dictionary. The Anchor Bankside was originally built in 1615 but today serves classic British fare, seven days a week; and has a terrace bar overlooking the river Thames.

A complete tourist trap with horrible food and mediocre beer. My fish and chips the fish was tasteless and tough.more
Nice interior, pretty authentic.
Food was very average. We had the roast beef. Way too much gravy, too much salt and the Yorkshire pudding was like rubber. Their 1730 pale ale was decent.more
Fish and chips. Tap brews. Pub fare. What you see is what you get. They say Shakespeare used to drink around here somewhere between gigs.more
Charming atmosphere, but it feels touristy. Good selection of beers on tap. We didn't eat so I can't comment on the food. It's a fine place to stop for a drink, but I think better options exist nearby.more
I find myself here a lot, mostly because I go to the Shakespeare Globe a lot, and I just wish that this place was either slightly cheaper OR had better beer on tap.
They have all the standard stuff - Stella, Heineken, Strongbow, yadda yadda - but you wind up paying almost £5 if not more for a pint! A G&T here cost about £5.50. Yikes.
Nice location, great place to unwind after a long day...more
