A restored country-style pub & restaurant, The Anchor Inn serves a tasty menu of gastro pub fare in a homey environment. Enjoy a meal in the garden when the weather is warm, or cosy up at one of the tables by the fireplace during the colder months.

Sourcing ingredients from trusted local suppliers, The Anchor Inn menu features wholesome recipes based around the garden, land and sea. Sample hand-pressed burgers, beef & ale pie with cardamom carrots, or sea bass with potato gnocchi, while old-school puddings include warming crumbles, custard-lathered sponges and decadent brownies. Not forgetting younger diners, a kids’ menu includes miniature versions of British classics.

A partnership with the celebrated Rothschild wine merchants means The Anchor Inn cellar is stocked full with an eclectic list of world wines, while indulgent wine flights allow guests to sample a variety of bins. Seasonal beers and barrel-kept ales also feature, as well as thirst-quenching cocktails and rich coffees.

The Anchor Inn in Merseyside is an 8-minute drive from Heswall Rail Station.

    Very busy so had to wait extra 20 minutes for our table. My friends burger was over cooked which was quite visible, as it was burnt to a crisp like texture. She would not send it back because the young girl serving us was a friends daughter.

    My evening was a compete disappointment! Food was ok but that was not the issue! The wait was appauling - over an hour before the main course arrived - they were busy yes but no indication was given at the time of ordering! When asked the answer came politely - we are busy!
    Food was mediocre but the service was really weak - very young team, friendly but not slick at all. Would not go again not good value for money.

    The food was very good, I had the lamb which was top drawer and my 2 guests enjoyed their salmon and chicken. The only problem was the service was a little slow because there weren't enough staff on that evening. The waitress was lovely though.

    Food was lovely, relaxed atmosphere but service very slow, felt we were out of the way, round a corner and not noticed.

    Last minute booking for Father's Day, but very accommodating. Friendly "gastro-pub" with good range of food, not over-the-top with fancy touches (unlike some others). Will be going back.
