You can expect a friendly welcome especially from Sharon, the co-owner. The bar staff are young and pleasant and eager to help. You order food at the bar and relax as your food is freshly prepared. There is a wide choice of yummy bar food with some serious seafood and steaks at the dearer end. I always have the excellent... More

The staff could not have been more helpful and pleasant. Nothing was too much trouble. The bedrooms were well appointed and we had a superb view. The bed was very comfortable. The food at both breakfast and the evening meal was well presented and not only cooked to order but cooked to each of our requirements. The portion size was... More

Just had a meal here and it was superb. I had the cajun chicken burger, my husband had the gammon and my son had sausage, beans and chips. All were Huge portions and we're very hot, shows they were not hanging around. Dogs are welcome, and they made a fuss of our dog by giving her biscuits. Didn't sit outside... More

We meet friends at the Anchor for lunch. Although the weather was a little unpredictable, we managed to sit outside overlooking the estuary. This seems to be a popular destination and has a good local reputation. The staff were mostly friendly except for one who seemed to have got out of the wrong side of the bed. Possible just an...

We spent a rainy weekend in kippford for our wedding anniversary and spent a few hours in the anchor. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the real ales they had in tap. I had the seafood chowder and to be honest I wasnt expecting much, the rest of the menu does seem a bit bland . However it was... More

As has previously been said, Kippford is a bit of a hidden secret (as is most of this lovely area) and it is a great little village for a break away. There are two pubs in the village and, as well as being at opposite ends of the street, they are poles apart in standard. The Anchor is the far... More

My family and I came to Kippford for a family holiday, the grandparents offered us an opportunity to go for a couple of drinks one evening as they would babysit! We arrived and were greeted politely, we ordered our drinks and sat in the corner. What a lovely atmosphere, some people were eating and the food looked nice. We stayed... More

Overnighted at the The Anchor, set against the Solway tidal estuary of the Urr Water river, this sleepy hollow village is one of the best kept secrets of Scotland. We overnighted on Wednesday and were treated to a great evening of hospitality from the owners, staff and visitors. The regular patrons made us feel welcome with tales and fact of... More

We regularly go to the Anchor and have done so for many years. It is a favourite place for us and for our friends who we take there to entertain. Menu is quality and varied , we have some great favourites , The sizzling chicken is to die for , and their Lamb Chops never disappoint. Great fresh fish dishes... More
