The Anchor Inn

The Anchor Inn

1-3 High Street, Cowes, Isle of Wight, PO31 7SA

Situated within the heart of the vibrant yachting town of Cowes on the Isle of Wight, The Anchor is a favourite with locals and visitors.

A public house has stood on the site for over 300 years. In 1704 the Debourne Estate leased some land on which The Anchor now stands. It became known as the ‘House of the Three Trumpeters’ and soon became the principle Coaching Inn of Cowes. Sometime during the 1820s the name changed to ‘The Anchor Inn’ by which it has been known ever since. The nautical reference is fitting for a pub so near the sea where sailors from around the world meet to share their tales.

Open all year round, The Anchor offers a wide selection of delicious home cooked food from a full menu as well as a choice of daily specials using locally sourced produce. The Anchor is always full of atmosphere and features live music every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evening throughout the year from some the Islands top bands and most talented musicians. Described as the Island’s premier music venue, The Anchor is a key destination for music fans all year round and hosts live music up to five times a week during the summer months showcasing a wide range of musical genres including rock, pop, indie, blues, jazz, skiffle, ska and reggae to name but a few.

In the summer time, you can relax in the large courtyard Beer Garden which is a real suntrap and during the winter months cosy up amongst the warmth of the wood stove. The Anchor is the ideal place to meet friends and family, eat, drink and be merry whether you are local to the area or visiting offering comfortable and affordable accommodation for guests throughout the year. There are seven refurbished rooms available, finished to a high standard whilst in keeping with the nautical theme of one of Cowes’ oldest and most highly regarded pubs.
