Location is great, just a little way from the sea/harbour, shame it has limited outdoor seating, but they cannot do much about that. The food and menu choice is first class, in fact too many choices!! of lovely fish / food, and certainly the food our party enjoyed could not be faulted in any way, from Haggis bites - Sole... More

Were out house hunting and thought we would try here again after a disappointing first visit. We found the food very average. I had the chantrelle starter which was very greasy and the wilted rocket and spinach was unappetising The toilets were in need new flooring as the vinyl flooring was repaired with black adhesive tapes and the toilet seats...

Thoroughly enjoyed a meal at the Anchor while visiting family who were camping in Johnshaven. The hotel/pub's location just off the harbour affords visitors a pre-dinner vista over the North Sea and allows them to provide incredibly fresh seafood for those who are so inclined. We ate in the bar area but they do have a fine-r dining area upstairs... More

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
