Description: We serve the finest Palmer's Ales and fantastic food with ingredients sourced from the best local producers.Our cliff top terrace comfortably seats 100 and the views are arguably some of the best in the country, if not the world!During the summer months we serve a great selection of fresh fish & shellfish caught from West Bay and Weymouth, and lobsters straight from our beach!In winter, the emphasis changes to hearty stews, slow cooked meats and watching the storm waves crash in with the comfort of our roaring wood burner.So whether you're after a light bite, a full on lunch or dinner, or just a pint or two, then The Anchor Inn at Seatown is the place for you!!

“Excellent place, staff and food outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

This is how to do it, young staff, well motivated and helpful.
It was a busy night yet they managed to squeeze 12 of us in and served very good food in quick time.
One of the party had booked a room and said it was really nice and planned to stay another week!
Amazing views from the garden along the Jurassic beach and walks to challenge the brave.

“Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Last Sunday we decided to drive down to the coast to take some photos. We were heading for Lyme Regis, however we decided on a whim to call in to Seatown. So glad we did. It’s a beautiful little place, with the Anchor Inn to offer refreshment and food. We stopped for lunch after a long walk on the Golden Cap and the beach. We have parked in the main car park; it cost £4 for the day, which is not too bad. Also if you spend more than £20 in the Anchor, they will take that off your bill. Don’t forget to present your parking ticket.
We decided to share a seafood platter for 2, and it was an excellent choice. The food was tasty and well presented. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We sat in the beer garden; it has great views, however the picnic benches could do with a rub down, but that won’t stop us from going back again soon.

“Tasty food and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

We have visited The Anchor Inn on a few occasions now, and twice since the refurbishment. The new outdoor seating area is great and gives a little shelter from the wind. We ate here last Saturday evening and each of our meals were delicious. The fish was fresh and tasty, the goats cheese, beetroot and almond salad was innovative and the slow cooked beef stew with Dorset Blue Vinney cheese was fabulous. The only slight disappointment were the chips! The staff were friendly and professional - they always engage you in conversation and are a credit to The Management.

“Excellent pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

Went for an early evening bite to eat and was impressed with both the food and the setting. We sat outside and watched the sea crashing on the shore and ordered some pub classics. The food was excellent and we felt good value. My daughters children's fish and chips was very generous and her plate was empty by the end! My ham egg and chips was delicious. Get there early as they don't take bookings, but it's worth the wait if you can't find a table straight away.

“Beautiful place to eat lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Went here to have lunch. Although the food is not fantastic it's not bad either. The pub has been recently renovated and is nicely decorated. The views from the outside seating area is very pleasant and has specactular views of the beach next to the pub and Golden Cap Hill.
