The Anchor

Welcome to The Anchor at Great Barford

The Anchor Inn and Restaurant is situated by the river Great Ouse at the picturesque village of Great Barford, with view of the river and the famous bridge with its 17 arches, first built in 1427. Starting from the bridge there is a public footpath which follows the banks of the river to Bedford. There are also other footpaths that pass through farmland and pastures to neighbouring villages.
We have a restaurant that seats 40 guests and is easilly adapted to cater for parties, anniversaries, celebrations and any other kind of function. We have a more informal dining area in the main bar which is very popular with the choice of a snacks menu, main menu and daily specials boards. With two fires lit in the winter months we are not just a fantastic riverside summer pub but a great winter pub too. If it's a business lunch with free wifi your after or meeting up with friends or family we are the place for you.
All food is prepared on the premises, by our highly skilled chefs from locally sourced produce. We aim to provide good, wholesome, traditional fare. Special menus are prepared for Christmas, New Year and our popular Theme Nights.
