We rented a cottage in the village and visited the Anchor several times during the week, as the weather was good we sat outside just having a drink a couple of days at the many tables with great views over the estuary. On our last night we ate in the pub and the food was very good as well. To... More

We rented a cottage locally and spent time at the anchor pub as well as having food in the lounge. It has a great community feel and they were very accommodating allowing us to book for a large party. The food was really tasty, especially recommend the onion ring tower which we fought over.

Walked from Sandyhills to Kippford with our wee dog on a fairly blustery day. Arrived at The Anchor Inn just before end of lunch service (not a problem), fantastic, friendly service, very decent hearty pub food and a great pint. JUST what was required before a return walk to Sandyhills. May return to stay overnight next time. Many thanks guys.

The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms have everything you need, including tea/coffee making facilities, water and biscuits. And as for... More

After walking from sandyhills to kippford, we had a great lunch in the anchor inn. Gannon steak was amazing and fish was good. Great service and lovely log fire. Would definitely recommend. Bus back to sandyhills after several drinks!!!

Had a lovely weekend with group of friends at this small harbourside hotel. Bedrooms greats, staff lovely, food could be a bit more adventurous. Popular with walkers and dogs, pathway to Rockcliffe with its quirky sculpture was fun.

I really can't praise this place enough. Our room was gorgeous, clean, modern and it had the most amazing views. Checking in was nice and smooth, met by a friendly member of staff and shown to our room within minutes. Our room was really clean and has modern bedding, and curtains, the bathroom was spacious and clean consisting of a... More

We live locally and had friends visiting so went out for a meal with them at the Anchor. I understand it has recently changed management and this is a change for the worse. The service was dreadful, bordering on rude and the food was very poor quality and seriously overpriced. we will not be back which is such a shame... More
