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

I stayed for two nights recently. Very clean rooms with en-suite, tv, tea, coffee, biscuits and bottled water. I struggled to get wifi on the top floor but it is good in the bar area. Breakfast is excellent and plentiful. Pub is popular and usually has real ale including from local brewery, Sulwath. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Accomodation - We stayed here for 2 nights in room 8. The room was nice for what we paid, in fact good value. But the views were amazing. I can't describe just how lovely it was to waken about to such a pretty scene. Food- The full breakfast was very generous and tasty. Kept us going all day. We ate... More

Start with a half pint of fresh prawns with a tremendous setting and view and you're not going to go much wrong after that. I had the chowder which was lovely and my wife had a very well cooked steak. Excellent spot for some good food, not overly priced although not cheap. I can see why this place is busy.... More
