We found this pub / restaurant quite by chance as we were walking alongside The Thames and thinking about something to eat. From the outside it looked very enticing, having a real "olde worlde" feel about it. We started off just by having a drink and enjoyed this in the outside area even though it was end of November.

We went to Anchor Bankside and had an OK visit. The food was average. The location, ambience and selection of drink was outstanding. Overall, we were not sorry we went but I don't think we would go back.

We were able to sit in our favorite little room with a fireplace. We had a chicken chardonnay pie; a fully dressed burger; and fish and chips. All very good food. They also have outside seating, overlooking London from the Southbank. They get very busy. It is a beautiful place to spend an evening. We eat here every time we... More

We showed up for our booked table but it was taken, we found a table after 10 minutes with the help from a couple of the staff. My friend asked if she could possibly get some mayonnaise to go with the fish and chips. "Maybe in 20 mins" sneered the waiter, he laughed and walked off, we were too shocked... More

Visited the Anchor with two friends, staff behind the bar didn't speak english so took me about 10 minutes to point them to the right drink i wanted and they were extremely inpatient and openly showed their feelings of irritation at me ordering a drink (in a pub!) they then proceeded to rudely dump food in front of us, no...

Love the roof top and Thames-side patio areas. Moderate selection of beers and a reasonable menu. Lots of room inside for groups. Fish and Chip shop adjacent. Connected to the Premier Inn Bankside (real value accommodation). Friendly staff and a really nice after work crowd. Excellent views of the city across the Thames. Historic window seat is a must to... More

Popped in for a couple of swift halves after work so can't comment extensively on the food but what I can say. Got served fairly quickly for a Friday night. Toilets average. Decent enough range of drinks on offer. Big space and a massive outside area with fantastic views of the River Thames and St Paul's etc. Plastic cups etc... More

We stopped by Anchor Bankside after a busy day of sightseeing. We enjoyed an early dinner of fish and chips, mushy peas and an ale and a stout. Good fare for pub grub. A fun setting and environment. Not sure I would go back but it was fun to experience once.

If it's a nice day you need to get here at 12 as by half past all the decent view seating has gone. We were right on the waters edge. I ha a Sunday roast which apart from the rather bland ?instant mash was great. Scampi and chips for hubs was decent size portion and nice and hot. I would... More

British friend of ours who now live abroad joined us at the Globe Theatre for a Shakespeare's play and as they had previously worked in the City knew the area well. They commented that they had never had a bad meal at the Anchor Bankside. The last was 20 years ago or so and times do change. Of the four... More
