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

We made our second visit to The Anchor on Monday 9th as we had been there in September, that visit it was very busy and we sat outside and ate excellent steak. This time it was chilly and we were happy to sit in the bar near one of fires. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the food... More

After a cycle ride from Southwold to Walberswick the only place open for a drink was The Anchor. Staff welcomed us with a smile and made us feel welcomed. The coffee we had was fairly priced. Walberswick is a very nice place to visit and a shame that nothing else was open.

Nothing was too much trouble for Sophie & her team, great food, great service in a stunning location. Luke was there on hand for all our needs, there when we went to bed & there again in the morning... More

On a cold but sunny January day we needed a light lunch and fell lucky with this delightful eatery. Two lovely plates, one of various fish items and one of meats. Nicely presented, bite sized quantities and delicious. Excellent service, warm fire, nice pudding and good beer. And well priced.

Just got back from a fabulous weekend at the Anchor, love it. Sophie and her team of culinary experts did not fail to impress and Luke's front of house skills are pure entertainment and nothing is too much trouble. The dogs loved the beaches and walks there and they were made so welcome throughout our stay. Thanks very much for... More

My partner and I often come here when we stay in walberswick. Theres a lot of room, its really cosy and the food is delicious. Sometimes the service can be a bit scatty in the restaurant, and the food a little pricey, but being in that part of suffolk, generally prices are fairly high wherever you go to eat. Occasionly...

V quiet at night, but two noisy builders in next room got up early and banged about shouting to each other at 5.45. Beer ( Adnams plus lots of specialist beers) v good, service fast and friendly. The food is good but a tad... More
