Welcome to the Anchor, Yalding

With its 14th century thatched roof and an enviable location right on the river, The Anchor sounds picture perfect - and it doesn’t disappoint on arrival.

And thanks to old oak beams and wooden wall panelling, this historic pub in Yalding is every bit as impressive on the inside as it is on the outside. 

Looks aren’t everything though, and it’s the fine fare and fantastic ambience that makes this place truly special. Classic Kentish cask ales are served up in peak condition, alongside a wide range of international lagers and an excellent list of carefully sourced wines from family-owned vineyards. 

Diners, meanwhile, can enjoy a variety of delicious light bites and traditional pub meals in our lovely restaurant, or out on our extensive terrace overlooking the river. On a sunny summer’s day, it’s the only place to be.

You’ll find us just 10 minutes’ stroll from the quaint village of Yalding, at the heart of the beautiful Wealden countryside. A warm welcome awaits.


Food lovers will enjoy sampling The Anchor’s delicious new menu.

The pub offers a selection of tasty snacks and traditional pub meals, freshly cooked onsite by our team of chefs using the finest locally sourced, seasonal produce.
