At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

Dating from 1878, The Anchor is the only pub in the Saxon village of Tilsworth and it boasts an acre of garden including patio seating for alfresco dining and an adventure playground for younger visitors. The pub prides itself on the fresh food and well-kept beers and guest ales. A starter of Barbary duck and port parfait with toasted ciabatta and red onion marmalade might be followed by wild boar and apple sausages with champ and redcurrant gravy; or bacon wrapped chicken breast stuffed with mozzarella, buttered new potatoes and sauce vièrge.
