The Anchor Woodbridge near our holiday cottages

The Anchor Woodbridge is just minutes from Twee Gebroeders; it’s the ideal place for quick pint or home-cooked meal. 

If you’re staying on the beautiful river Deben here in Suffolk then there’s a very strong possibility you’ll be stopping into this delightful market town for a drink at some point and the Anchor Woodbridge is a proper old pub!

One of the most popular watering holes in the town, as well as the most convenient to the quayside.

When you first enter the pub you could be forgiven for thinking that it’s a tiny place. But you’ll soon discover that the inside opens out TARDIS like to reveal a ‘smugglers warren’ of rooms with plenty of space for drinkers and diners. 

The clientele is a perfect mix of locals and tourists, making The Anchor Woodbridge a superb destination for a few pints of locally produced ale or cider after a long day relaxing on the Deben or visiting the many other attractions in the town and the surrounding area. 

The Anchor Woodbridge hosts many evenings of local music (including a popular open mic if you fancy giving performing a go yourself!) making it a vibrant hub for entertainment in the town. 

In terms of food on offer the pub provides a rich mix of traditional English staples, such as Gressingham duck breast and slow roast pork belly, and more exotic dishes such as seared wood pigeon and Istana lamb curry. So there should be something on the menu to delight all tastes.
