This is one of only 2 pubs around the Kippford area and is the more upmarket of the two.

For a start it usually has local beers (named after the local hills) which are better than the standard Bellhaven. Secondly the food is good if expensive...

On a good day you can enjoy the scenery from the front of the hotel outside; on a bad one and in tourist season expect to be rammed in inside

The hotel was hit by floods from the storms early in 2014 but has been well refurbished now.

A nice place to be when the sun shines...

We visit kippford two or three times a year Easter,late Summer and New Year. We eat and drink regularly at The Anchor the food is always superb tasty and plentiful served by extremely delightful pleasant and friendly staff who always smile no matter how busy they are. Lyndsey and Lewis are always ready to stop and have a chat as are the owners Sharon and Rob who always go that extra mile to make their customers happy. The Anchor is a delight to sit in either inside or outside we were lucky enough to be there at Easter the weather was wall to wall sunshine every day sitting outside was magical. Thank you all for making our stay wonderful as always.

Great service and great food.
Not a huge choice of mains, but enough to ensure there is something for everyone., There is a specials board for starters and sweets.
It was busy, but we were fortunate to get an outdoor seat. The weather was beautiful and the view of the harbour is superb.

We stayed here over the bank holiday weekend. The staff were lovely, room clean and spacious - we were spoilt with a fantastic sea view family room. The breakfast was possibly the best I've ever had and the food from the main menu was varied and tasty. Great little base for visiting sandy hills beach and taking a few leisurely walks.

The anchor is in the most beautiful setting. After a busy week at work you cannot beat sitting outside with a glass of wine unwinding and watching the world go by. Or even on a cold day you can sit in front of a roaring log fire. We always get a great welcome from the friendly owners. And the food has recently got much better its really good pub grub hearty portions and lovely and fresh. If you want to visit a perfect little pub that's a piece of heaven I'd recommend the anchor!
