Called in for lunch on a longish walk and were met with friendly welcome, comfortable seating and two ploughman's lunches, containing the best of local produce - especially the ham. Well kept Adnams, good facilities, attractive garden.

We came here in error, but did not regret it. Having not been to Walberswick for nearly 40 years, we decided to call in briefly at the Bell. When we arrived, we though either it had changed its name or we had the name of the pub wrong. (It was only later when we walked back from Southwold that we...

Stopped for lunch as passing through whilst on holiday. Menu was limited and slightly overpriced for what was received. Quality of food was good but portions small and expensive in comparison. Staff were pleasant enough.

We visit this part of Suffolk regularly and decided to stay here for a special occasion since it is not cheap. However we were certainly not disappointed. Because we have a dog we booked one of the garden chalets which open directly onto the lovely large garden which has a path leading to the beach. There is a lovely outside...

What a great place, we had one of the chalet style rooms in the gardens, perfect for us as a family of 4 plus dog. Bed was really comfortable and it was fine with bed settee for the children. Sat outside with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law with lovely bottle of English Rose from the bar as they had the room...

Ate here while staying at another pub in the area and would certainly recommend. Friendly, knowledgeable staff on the bar and in the restaurant. Clean, well decorated and nicely laid out. Food was absolutely superb - fresh, tasty and cooked with love. One of our group has a wheat intolerance and nothing on the dessert menu was suitable so the...

This is a great pub with friendly staff and a roaring fire. Always has a good selection of well kept Adnams beers. On our last visit, over the May Day weekend, I particularly enjoyed the "Broadside" and "Ghost Ship".

We visited Walberswick for Easter and feeling it would be quieter than the much busier Southwold. We weren't disappointed as the the village is lovely and still only a short 30 minute walk to Southwold (shorter still if you get the "ferry"!). The Anchor was very nice and having stayed 3 nights and eaten there two evenings we got a...

On 17 April 2017 I took my family out for dinner to The Anchor at Walberswick. The pub wasn't especially busy so we walked in and I asked if they had a table for 5. The response of the waitress was one of affronted astonishment - as if I had the cheek to ask her if they had a table...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A village pub with a difference. Our addiction to fresh, top quality, locally sourced where possible produce, combined with a thirst for excellence have evolved into what has been described as a "must go to place on the Suffolk coast." Our approach to food is robust; we want to put on each plate satisfying combinations of flavours and textures. We have a good range of characterful draught beers, and numerous world class bottled beers, organic soft drinks and over 150 drop dead lovely wines from some of the earth’s most inspired winemakers. We offer the same menu throughout, with more formal Restaurant dining on a bookings basis and more relaxed walk-ins, in the Bar. We also have seating for 150 outside on three terraces, with table service available for those warmer days. Our renovated flint barn is a highly versatile space, equipped with a drop-down screen and a projector, ideal for business meetings, strategy reviews, team building exercises, corporate training, presentations, film showings or private parties to mention just a few of its uses. It has been put to good use in the cause of village based charity fund raising projects as well as providing the theatre for Food Safari events, cask beer festivals and the Aldebrough Doc. Fest. fringe event weekend November 2011. Free time relaxation can include everything from Golf at several well established Courses, to Horse Riding at Bramfield Equestrian Centre, Sky Diving for all levels at Beccels, Aromatherapy in walking distance or sea fishing of Walberswick Coast with Mark Felton. Beer Academy and WSCT (Wine and Spirits) educational courses are available by arrangement. Our Hotel Accommodation: We have just undergone a thorough renovation of our Now Cedar Clad Chalets, enhancing the environment in which to enjoy the Sea View. We offer 10 rooms in total, 6 spacious en suite room garden chalets, as well as several room options in the main building. All the rooms have a large flat screen TV, with Freeview and IPod Alarm Clock docking Stations. Ample free parking is provided with direct access to the beach, Dunwich Forest or the Marshes. RSPB Minsmere, Southwold and Aldeburgh are all close by. ... more   less
