The Anchor in Danbury is the epitome of an English Country Inn, boasting beautiful traditional beams, quaint shining brass and a warm welcoming atmosphere which has made this pub a firm favourite for many years.
We have a lovely large garden with a fun children's play area, great for keeping the kids entertained while you catch up with friends and family over a relaxing drink or with some great food.
- Four legged friends are welcome at the pub, please ask our friendly staff for confirmation on which areas can accommodate you as we do require that dogs are kept out of the main dinning areas.
- Please note reservations with a dog are necessary, and can only be taken over the phone on 01245 222457 stating you have a dog.
- If you have a pushchair/buggy we ask that you call to make reservation, due to limited space.
- We only take reservations for our INDOOR tables.

    Warm welcome on arrival, promptly sat at table. Tasty food for all of us, lovely helpful staff. We had a great time and will be back. Only small criticism is that they don’t have strawberry ice cream on menu. Due to it we didn’t have desserts as son wanted strawberry ice cream

    Good food in nice surroundings. The round table in the bar area was excellent for 4 people and wasn't too noisy. Service was good. Would certainly recommend for great food in good surroundings.

    Our experience was rather spoiled by the fact that our guest's jacket potato was full of black lumps. However, as soon as this was pointed out to a member of staff, the plate was very quickly taken away & a replacement meal was served after only a short space of time. The problem was obviously undetectable in advance & very quickly rectified.

    Good choice on the menu, especially on the Specials Board. I had their salmon dish from the Specials board, as usual, as it is one of my favourites. Efficient and courteous staff. All our meals were tasty, hot and very well presented, as usual. We don't live in the area, but always take our family there for birthdays and other special occasions. Plenty of parking available and a large garden, including tables out at the front of the pub. We will be returning again.

    We enjoyed our meals. Good variation, prompt, hot and tasty. Puddings we felt we’re not very good value.
