user reviews of Anchored in Worthing, Worthing

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

This is a wonderful find if you have enjoyed a few hours on the Worthing beach and need a couple of quality ales to finish the day..

Located on a small side-street off the sea-front road, this Micro-Pub is exactly that..MICRO! About the size of a regular living room, once the first dozen customers have arrived, it's full!

If you want music, fizzy lager or vodka shots, this is not for you..
But if you appreciate quality real ales [I should say Sussex real ales because that's their speciality] then this IS for you. They also sell some seriously good local ciders and a couple of local wines. No spirits; no lager..

Walking in, you are struck by the lack of any bar. Find a seat at one of the high tables and Debbie the landlady will introduce herself to you, point you to the blackboard listing today's real ales and ciders, and explain each one to you.
She offered me a Wetherspoon-style option of three one-third pint glasses as I wasn't familiar with any of the local ales. Very good they were too, ranging from a 3.8% session ale, through to a mid-strength alternative and a 6.5% blockbuster. All were top class.
Four local ciders were also on offer, from two 4% dry and medium dry options to two others at 6.1% and 6.8%. Necessity required that I had to try each of them, and they were all superb.

All in all some excellent refreshments were imbibed!

The close physical proximity of customers to each other and the very nature of micro-pubs encourages interaction between customers. It wasn't very long before other drinkers were introducing themselves to me, swapping tales about the beers and telling me about the town [which I am not really familiar with.]

All-in-all, I had a great night in the 'Anchored'. I was there mid-week, and I am told that Fridays and Saturdays are very busy, so get there early!

If you appreciate your real ale and decent ciders, it's not very often that you are fortunate enough to make this sort of wonderful discovery.

You'll not be surprised to find that this is a CAMRA Regional I know why!

Can't wait to find an excuse to get back to Worthing for another night at the 'Anchored'!

Tiny micropub in a street leading back from Marine Parade. Very friendly clientele. There were three local beers on at the time of my visit, a bit strong for my preference, but in good condition. There''s no bar so it can be hard to get served if the landlord staff is otherwise engaged behind the scenes.

Absolutely tiny place (well it is a micropub). Chatty & opinionated owner and excellent beer. Best visited in the afternoon before it gets packed.

The original micro pub in Worthing. A strictly Sussex only policy for the beer and even the wine. The red wine is from the Bolney Estate and very palatable. A place to have a drink and a chat with friendly strangers. Note 21:30 closing at the moment. Worth a visit.
