Anchor Inn

Cockwood, Starcross EX6 8RA
Tel: 01626 890203

Reputedly over 450 years of age and originally a Seamen’s Mission, the Anchor Inn is a charming and iconic inn situated adjacent to and overlooking the quaint little harbour in picturesque Cockwood.

The pub’s interior is just as wonderful as its exterior and features old settles, timber panelling, low beams, snugs and an impressive display of old nautical memorabilia. The Anchor’s award-winning seafood menu is famous for its mussels which are a genuine speciality (there are probably more mussels in the Anchor at any one time than there is in the nearby River Exe).

In addition to its range of fresh seafood which includes sublime scallops and perfect platters, the Anchor also offers a varied menu to suit all tastes, alongside a great range of draught beers including hand-pulled real ales and local ciders. As you would expect the fish pie is probably the best around but the steak and ale pie is also to die for – Scott and his team really do know how to produce delicious, mouth-watering food.

Why not enjoy an evening sitting outside watching the Cockwood swans whilst soaking up the last of the setting sun? Or on colder nights take a seat inside and enjoy the warm and friendly atmosphere that this beautiful pub offers.
