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.

All 3 of us had the roast beef, good size portion, plenty of roasts and excellent veg selection. Couldn’t fault a thing. Sat outside but undercover and courtyard sheltered from wind

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 😊

Lovely courtyard overlooking Worcester marina with pleasant friendly staff and atmosphere. Good range tasty pub food with some original twists such as types of fries. Great burgers, salads and super spicy 'dirty' fries ( maybe bit too spicy!!) Lush banoffee pie

We had a lovely meal but it was a very long wait for good. When ordering food we were told it was a 40 minute wait but it was actually over an hour. But when the food came it was lovely

Lovely place to eat and drink. The Anchor is in a canal basin giving it a special ambience of its own. Staff are really friendly and swift in their service, even when it is busy. The food is simply fabulous, the Sunday roast dinners were really good - all praise to the chef for creating the veggie pie, just gorgeous!

Unfortunately it was unstaffed when I went. The drinks took 30 minutes to arrive even though we only ordered two fizzy drinks. I ordered the garden linguine and it was very bland. But the calamari was great

Outdoor only seating offered. Table was too small for our group, staff were disinterested and confused about who was serving us. Food took a long time because apparently there was only one chef for the Sunday service.

Hi, the food was very nice, the water jugs though did have mold at the bottom of the jug, so that put us of the water.
I was very hot that day, a fan was provided for the inside area but was only placed on the party of 11 in at the time.
The food was very lovely, all empty plates and our friends we took for the first time loved it

Staff were incredibly accommodating as we had to change our booking several times and moved to a different area on the day due to extreme heat. Food was great and service was friendly and prompt.
