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!!

Fabulous lunch at the Anchor yesterday. We ordered the mackerel with mango and goats cheese with beetroot salads and they were just superb. Other restaurants would have ready-made salads and just put the main ingredients on top but here they were both totally different and each a work of art!
Loved the upgrade to the gardens and so pleased they have mostly kept the original interior. The new loos are just fab!
Happy, friendly staff.

We were staying at the site just next to the pub and once we had discovered it, didn't eat anywhere else! The pub has had a reasonably recent refurb and has been beautifully done, tables are hard to come by, which is testament to the food and staff, but certainly worth the wait. There are fantastic views across the bay and the food is delicious, absolutely fantastic, will certainly return when next in the area.

Excellent food - ham as thick as your leg - eggs, chips - all went down well with our daughters. Tables inside are limited, which can be an issue (particularly if you get a sudden rainy squall and everyone rushes inside!). Nice, friendly staff who know all the local beers, ales and milk vodka too! I think the food is really great, because it's not pretentious but just a bit more exciting that your average "chips with everything" pub menu, and the portions are generous (bravo! No-one on holiday is ever on a diet, so feed them well!). Highly recommended and they do breakfast for non-residents on Thurs, Fri and Sat too.

We came on a really vague recommendation but what a last second decision.
Twin one had ham egg and chips which came with one of the thickest cuts of local ham I've ever seen served up and it melted in the mouth.
Twin two had a child's portion of carbonara which was absolutely immense, tri-coloured pasta bows and loads of flavour.
The wife and I had a seafood platter which was presented on a wooden platter and I just couldn't fault the combination of breads, fresh crab, trout pate, smoked salmon, prawns, mackerel...my mouth is still watering at the thought.
The location is stunning with a view along the coast towards Lyme Regis and back towards

Our recent four night stay in one of the Anchor's refurbed rooms was delightful. The room featured a tasteful nautical/contemporary style, great facilities (especially the bathroom...wow!), uber-comfortable bed, with splendid views out over the beach and Doghouse Hill. And downstairs, the welcoming embrace of the Anchor pub, with its excellent range of Palmers beers and sumptuous food. As that slightly cliched saying goes, what's not to like? Thanks to Paul and his friendly and helpful team, who collectively make a convivial addition to this brilliant place. Great memories indeed.
