Cracking pub on the water near the tide mill. Great views. Great atmosphere. Four casks including Doom Bar and Ringwood's Forty Niner available. Open log fire. Relaxed atmosphere. Probably the best pub in Totton. A little out of the way, but worth searching out for.

Enjoyed our trip to Eling, walking around the tide mill and having lunch at The Anchor Inn. The staff were very friendly, the pub is dog friendly and the food was tasty. The homemade burger was particularly good.
