The Anchor Hotel is a wee gem for those who want to get away from it all but still be in the heart of the tourism jewel that is Angus. The friendly, family-run hotel boasts quaint and well appointed bedrooms, beautifully decorated (we stayed in an en-suite family room, with a double bed and adjoining room with two single beds...

We stayed here last weekend, the food was excellent and the staff very friendly. The width of the double room is exactly what you see in the photos, bed and two cabinets and the same small space at the bottom of the bed. No wardrobe, just a small rail with 4 hangers. Don't take a large case, little room between... More

The friendly welcome & service and the outstanding food by Greg & his team is just amazing .... Everything is freshly made and a seafood lovers dream, although plenty if you prefer your meat. I really can't praise this little gem highly enough and all the girls are so friendly, I can't think of anyone saying a bad thing. 5... More

We live just up the coast from Johnshaven and discovered it on a day out. Thinking that the Anchor looked clean and inviting I booked a surprise weekend away for my partner's birthday. We arrived late Saturday afternoon, went to the bar, were met with some friendly staff. We had a couple of drinks and some banter with the bar... More

We didn't have accommodation for last night, so we stopped in Johnshaven and were lucky enough to get a room in the Anchor. The room was small but nice and comfortable, but the best aspect of the Anchor is most certainly the food. We had fresh seafood for dinner and it was absolutely delicious! You can watch the fishermen outside... More

Just had a lovely lunch here. Visiting friends in the village, we had the mussels and the burger. Burger homemade and very tasty, the mussels very also lovely. The bar was busy with a good atmosphere and the service very friendly. Well worth a visit
