“What a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Found this pub when visiting Brixham. Right by the harbour, warm welcome and dog friendly. The real find is the food it is great and we will be back as soon as possible. If you like good food in a "real pub" then this is the place to go, try it you will not be dissapointed.

“Cosy, friendly place we love to come back to.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We first visited back in April 2012 on a weeks holiday to Paignton and we walked to Brixham along the coastal path. It was a lovely reward when we got there and found The Blue Anchor. Being real ale fans it was lovely to taste some local beers. We stayed for a couple of hours chatting with the locals and was made to feel very welcome. We returned to Brixham in October for a weeks holiday there, and our first stop was the pub. There was a beer festival on and we managed to get a taste of quite a few different beers. Again the locals made us feel very welcome and we are looking forward to returning at Easter next year.
