user reviews of the Anchor Inn, Nayland

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Pub in a lovely spot that seems to have a good balance between being a gastro pub and a drinking pub.

Available ales were Greene King IPA, Adnams Best, Buntingford's Pargeter Mild and Mauldon's Mid-Autumn Gold. The food seemed popular, although I didn't try it. They've got a huge kitchen garden (more like a mini-farm) behind the pub along the banks of the River Stour and some of the fruit and veg comes from there. It really is in a good setting if you've got a nice day.

Nice location for the free house pub cum restaurant in Nayland. Alongside the River Stour just past the bridge there are some nice seats to enjoy a pint or two. The river here looks pretty healthy with reeds growing on the waters edge. There is also a nice terraced and covered seating area outside closer to the back of the pub. I think that area is supposed to be for alfresco diners though. The old smokehouse past this area seems to be for storing things rather than the original use.

Inside the pub five hand pumps were available with Adnams Bitter, Crouch Vale Summer Breeze, Cliff Quay Bitter, GK IPA and O/S/H. The Cliff Quay Bitter was in good condition however I had ask for it topped up as it had a massive head on the beer. If you are not a fan of G/K watch it as all the pint glasses seemed to have St Edmunds branding on them. I managed to quickly request a mug/jug to avoid it. Overall not a bad visit with the views from the outside seating.
