The Stable Bar

Our woodburner

The Stable Bar offers a different feel to the restaurant area of the Anchor Inn, providing a more old-fashioned and quintessential English village pub experience. It is frequently used as a place to unwind, enjoy a pint of real ale or a glass of wine and you can also enjoy our full menu if you prefer to eat in a more relaxed environment or you have your four legged companion with you.

The Stable Bar boasts a recently renovated double-sided woodburner, giving warmth to both the Stable Bar and Restaurant areas of The Anchor. This provides the perfect place to sit and have a cosy drink in those winter months or cool summer evenings. The Stable Bar also has a rear entrance leading out to the outdoors seating & garden area of The Anchor, which becomes extremely popular heading into the spring and summer periods.

Private events

The Stable Bar has been booked out in the past for a wide range of private events, from birthday parties to wedding receptions. The area boasts space for a capacity of up to 50 people, with many options for catering (hot and cold). We have also seen the Stable Bar host numerous Gin & Wine tasting nights, hosted by local experts.
