Email this pub The Anchor Inn is a traditional pub, restaurant and b&b with six en-suite letting bedrooms. Overlooking beautiful rural surroundings shaped by the river Exe, it is situated on the southern tip of Exmoor near the village of Dulverton.

The Anchor is very much a country Inn and we offer a warm welcome to people enjoying the wide range of outdoor activities that the area offers.

We are proud to serve fresh homemade food sourced from local suppliers, taking full advantage of the fine produce that Somerset and Devonshire have to offer. We specialise in fresh fish, shellfish and game in season. Guests are encouraged to dine wherever they feel most comfortable and food is served throughout the Inn and gardens.

We are a dog friendly Inn and dogs are welcomed in the bars and gardens. They may also share designated accommodation with their owners.
