Thanks for booking a table at The Anchor Pub & Kitchen, Dave the head chef and his team specialise in fresh cooked local produce, We cook to order here and have 3 unique rooms to eat. The Boathouse which is light and airy with fantastic tapas & seafood specials always on the board, The 30 cover boutique restaurant which is more old fashioned with its oak floor and log burner keeping guest warm in the winter months, We also have the yard which is outside with covering for 40 guests, hot water bottles, blankets we serve hand stretched pizzas, tapas, steak burgers . Overlooking the Diglis marina and 5 mins walk to Worcester cathedral and city centre. We have 5 star hygiene certificates, awards for ales and a pub of the year award. The atmosphere is laid back with customer service at the top of the list. You'll be looked after by Nic & Erin with there fabulous front of house team. On Sundays it's all about the Sunday roasts and homemade crumbles & lashings of custard.

I visit regularly and like the pub always good food.
However I ordered the shin of beef pie which was awful dry overcooked meat and just not pleasant.
I was meeting a client so eat the meal and didn't point this out which is unlike me as I think feedback is constructive.
I will visit again but if I get a repeat sadly I will change my Google review from the 5 stars currently.

Can highly recommend the Anchor for breakfast. We met a couple of friends and none of us were disappointed, lovely food and great service. The full breakfast is tasty and well prepared. A decent portion, lovely toast and not a long wait. The pub was quiet and we were not disturbed, just left to enjoy the food and each other’s company.

A lovely Sunday dinner, food was as lovely as ever and really enjoyed eating in the boat house.
Creme brûlée was particularly good, The Anchor still remains to be the only place I will eat a Sunday dinner other than my own.

Visited Sunday for lunch we enjoyed the best food and service we have experienced in a long time.
The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly.
We had mussels and scallops for starters both yummy and the roast beef dinner… gravy was the best!

This was a great find! A new part of Worcester for me by the canal boat harbour, ideal on a hot sunny day. Food and entire menu was fabulous service was reliable and accommodating. A lovely discovery

We have been craving an anchor Sunday lunch for a while and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing and The Anchor really is the only place I would ever choose to have a Sunday lunch apart from my own of course.
My pork dinner was delicious and the crackling on the top was the best I’ve tasted.
Well done to all at The Anchor 😊
