A restored country-style pub & restaurant, The Anchor Inn Irby 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.

    Nice relaxed surroundings. Staff very polite and helpful. Ordered 2 chicken burgers which were not actually chicken burgers they were goujons. Very dry and disappointing. Booked table for 6pm start of the evening and they had already run out of cream for my husbands dessert.

    Excellent service and excellent food

    I haven't been to The Anchor in years and was pleasantly suprised at the update in decor and service. We went for a Mothers Day tea and the food looked and tasted amazing.

    My only criticism is that I ordered the steak pie and there was only one cube of steak in it.

    Apart from that, an overall good experience and I would definitely go back.

    Have been several times over the past month both evening and lunch time and have sampled many of the menu offers including the specials all of which have been delicious fish dishes. In particular both as starter or main course are varied and a favourite .The dining areas are lovely and varied depending on the size of the party and the service could not be better.
