The Anchor Inn - Alton


SquareMeal Review of The Anchor Inn - Alton

Opened in March 2008 and thanks to extensive re-modelling this cracking gastropub-with-rooms has retained its character throughout – from snug bar & saloon to a main dining area where bare boards, fashionable green paintwork, period chairs & polished wood tables sporting large candlesticks create a stylish look. All in all, The Anchor is a real charmer that plays pied piper to a coterie of Hampshire’s well off & London weekenders, by putting the emphasis on plates of food rather than pints of beer. The confident, accomplished cooking may not be trend-setting, but refined pub classics such as calf’s liver with bacon & mash or rhubarb crumble & custard tick all the right ‘local produce’ boxes.

A very well laid out and thoughtful gastropub on the edge of Alton, Hampshire. The food and service have built up quite a following in the area and rightly so. There is an excellent choice of food and alot of it is sourced locally which is the trend these days. What's also nice is that the beer too is local from Triple F to Andwell there's a good selection on tap. The food is fresh and the service is very friendly. If the weather is nice the beer garden is quiet and large with a ‘wild’ meadow area off to one side. If it's a bit cold you can take blankets outside and sit and watch the world go by (slowly). It's a real find and I can thoroughly recommend the fish and chips on a Friday.
