The Anchor Inn is a traditional Drovers Inn dating from 1888 and still retains a lot of its original features. Since purchasing the Anchor in 2006 we have made some positive changes whilst sticking with ...More traditional Scottish pub values. The nautical theme has been kept and the open fire makes for cosy surroundings. We pride ourselves in creating a welcoming friendly atmosphere and serve draught beers, wines and spirits. In the kitchen our long serving chef provides you with an exciting menu to choose from and all our meat is sourced from the local butcher. If you are a Coleslaw fan then you really must try our chef's homemade recipe as it is locally renowned. At the outset of taking over the Inn we focused on building the accommodation side of things and thus now have a total of fourteen new rooms all except one are fully ensuite. They have been built to a highly modern standard and are tastefully decorated again with a nautical/Scottish theme. Six of these rooms command stunning views over the Gareloch and the surrounding mountains. Less
