Set on the river front in the shadow of St Helens, The Old Anchor is beautifully located and is now under new ownership. We have completed an extensive yet tasteful refurbishment that really brings out the character of the pub that dates back to 1819. With 3 log fires and plenty of outside seating The Old Anchor is the perfect location to meet up with friends and family whatever the weather.
We are passionate about locally sourced, seasonal, great pub food. The menu is predominately British with traditional pub classics featuring strongly. Daily specials take advantage of the freshest and finest ingredients that our head chef has sourced from local producers and markets. Sundays are sacred – our Roasts are infamous in the area so get in early to bag yourself a seat next to a real log fire! But The Old Anchor isn’t just about great food we have carefully chosen a wide range of wines, soft drinks, bottled beers, draught lagers, ales and ciders, to suit all tastes.
A beautiful function room (The Drawing Room) that comfortably sits 16 between 2 tables or sits 12 on 1 table is ideal for special occasions and family get-togethers. It has its own log fire and beautiful views over the Alms House gardens.
For events and activities there is always something on during the evening, for example. our famous quiz night with a bonus of £50 (provided that you pick the right card). Every fortnight on a Saturday night, live music and why not come and see our Music group open mic night, all are welcomed.
So whether you want a quick pint or a long evening with friends The Old Anchor’s combination of great food and drink with friendly service is certain to impress.
