Good for tourists and locals!

Location: great. Just by the Thames, a proper "old english" building which has a good selection of ales and delicious food. Bit pricey to be a pub, for obvious reasons, but still, you're not gonna be disappointed. Unfortunately, unless you're sitting outside in the summer, there's not table right... read more

I met family that lives in London there, and was very pleasantly surprised... good food, good drink, very good service. It is a pretty quaint place with a lot of character as well..

Had a lunchtime drink. Welcoming staff. Nice view from the roof terrace which was very small only half a dozen tables. We were lucky to get one. Food looked very good although we didn't eat

This is the third time I've visited the Anchor.Yet again it's been a total pleasure. Their steak n ale pie is to sie for. Nothing better on a bit of a gloomy day in the Capital. The building is oozing character. All of the staff are very polite and very efficient. On a hot day there would be nothing better... More

I visited this pub twice on my 4 day stay in London and both times I ate there. The food was excellent and reasonable prices for London. Great atmosphere too. It was not sunny enough to sit outside but would be lovely in the summer to sit on the patio area looking out towards the Thames. Overall we had a... More

I stopped here after walking across the tower bridge. This pub is old school classic. The beer consisted mostly of Samuel smiths which is a plus in my eyes. Our bartender Jeff was excellent!!! We had such a great time chatting up the locals. I would highly recommend.

On a whim we decided to walk along the Southbank from Bermondsey on Bank Holiday Mondayand was in full "tourist" mode by the time we reached the Anchor. Being an unusually pleasant day for a Bank Holiday we decided to have lunch by the Thames - not normally something I would do but.... OK, after a bit of messing around... More

If you're lucky to get a table, you can actually order food. If you haven't got a place to park your bum, you can at least order a frothy brew. One needs to be in the mood for frenzy. Not exactly the place to unwind and chill, but then again, depending on the hour of the day, the whole neighbourhood... More

Taylor Walker's three-hundred-year-old Bankside boozer is a must for visitors to London Bridge. Great stopping off place for a pint of Black Sheep which is brewed 235 miles away in Masham, North Yorkshire but fortunately travels well. Handy for Borough Market and nearby Globe Theatre although no sign of Will these days. He's probably moved back to Stratford. Views across... More

Fish and chips with a brew on the Themes, what more could you ask for? The food was quickly prepared and was a very decent portion. Beer was well poured and everything was well priced.

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
