Set in the heart of Essex and overlooking the River Crouch, The Anchor is a modern and spacious pub and restaurant in the town of Hullbridge. Using local produce and celebrating the county’s natural larder, The Anchor works closely with local suppliers to ensure that only the freshest, ethically-sourced, seasonal food makes it onto its menus. With its stunning waterfront location overlooking the River Crouch, The Anchor offers the perfect tranquil destination to unwind and relax with friends and family. Set deep in the heart of the charming Essex countryside and surrounded by acres of green belt farmland and a nature reserve, this delightful inn boasts spectacular views of the river and undulating hills from its beautiful gardens and is the perfect position for a spot of al fresco dining on the large decked terraces. In the chillier months, a table inside the riverside orangery with its floor to ceiling glass windows is another wonderful option for eating and drinking where an abundance of natural light floods in to this large, open yet cosy and inviting space. The Anchor is undeniably a unique riverside retreat and the perfect destination to dine in style or simply to just watch the world go by whilst enjoying one of our local ales or fine wines after a stroll along the river bank.
