The Blue Anchor is one of the oldest original Inns in Britain that continues to maintain a working brewery. Dating back to the 15th century, the Inn boasts 600 years of brewing! Originally a monks rest house, which produced a strong honey based mead, it now produces a variety of ‘Spingo Ales’ to traditional recipes. The Inn still retains its original character and has no slot machines or piped music! However, live music is often performed in the skittle alley or main bars. A major feature of the Inn, is the large garden to the rear, with its own bar and BBQ.Landlords Simon and Kim Stone have been custodians of the Inn since 1993 and have sympathetically improved the brewery, kitchen, skittle alley and beer garden without changing the character or appeal of the Inn.
