Very nicely located within a short walk to the shoreline. The pub has a good selection of Adnams ales all in good condition (yes, I did try them all). The restaurant menu was varied and the food was well presented, although my beef and my friends pork appeared to share the same gravy. The accommodation was clean and comfortable.

What a great place.....fantastic location in a sleepy village right by the dunes, a two minute walk to the sea, with amazing walks through heathland or beach. The food was fantastic, the choice of both local and international beer extensive, and a comprehensive winelist made for an excellent stay. Staff were very helpful and the room very comfortable, in the... More

This review is long everdue. Our Club members thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Walberswick, the surrounding area and especially the welcome, facilities & meals offered by the hosts and team of The Anchor. All minor problems that crop up during a 3-night stay were swiflty resolved, and our group left with only great memories. We enjoyed two evening meals at... More

We were recommended The Anchor for a meal as it was Monday and many of the local pubs were closed. We were not disappointed. My wife asked for a glass of white wine as her tipple and she was offered a choice of maybe half-a-dozen, each being accompanied by an expert description, by the friendly and witty barman. There was... More

We were a party of 10 seniors, and the staff quickly made up a table for us, The service and food were excellent. No complaints at all. The village of Walberswick is very pretty. Miles of sandy/pebbly beach nearby. Recommended.

The anchor has amazing service, ve ry friendly and welcoming, accommodating to all my family needs. The food was extremely high standards and everyone was satisfied by the fab portion sizes served. The desserts were all melt in the mouth. We will 100% be coming back to see and try more of the lovely food and service :-)

Paid a visit in the off-season to see friends in the area and stayed here just one night, but plan to come back again as soon as possible. Spacious and comfortable room, immaculate bathroom. Ready access to the seashore/beach as well as country paths. An excellent restaurant and fine beverages. Friendly staff. Loved it!

We stayed at the Anchor Friday and Saturday night 20/21st March. The Garden Cottage is very overpriced at £120 and £110. per night. The room was very shabby. The heating and hot water did not work, although when advised they switched it on! The bed moves across the floor as on a tiled floor that is freezing, the sheets were... More

My husband and five year old son stayed here last summer for 1 night. Location was great and we stayed in one of the garden rooms which was good with a small child as you had direct access to the gardens. The room was comfortable and I actually thought the décor was nicer than in the website gallery. The underfloor... More

Have just returned from a 4 day break in Southwold. I booked a table at The Anchor for 11 of us last Sunday (plus 2 dogs) and we ate in the little room off the main bar area. The food was amazing, especially the roast beef with excellent roast potatoes. I must say that Horio(?) who looked after us was... More
