The Old Anchor Inn stands on the River Thames where the River Ock meets the Thames. It is in the old market town of Abingdon in Oxfordshire. Abingdon is one of the oldest towns in England, possible the oldest. The licensees of the pub are Paul and Lesley White. It has a very traditional look to the pub with lots of small rooms off the main bar area and is a very picturesque setting for the pub. Paul and Lesley welcome everyone with a cheery smile. Locals, river travellerâ€™s ramblers and the odd passer by are all welcome into this friendly bar. Paul is an avid fan of conference football and to his delight Oxford have facilitated him with being able to watch it locally. Alongside the normal Greene King selection of beers there is an excellent selection of bottled beer and the pub also regularly has a guest beer on show. For a full list of wines and beers and costs why not visit the Tariff page on the website or better still pop into the pub itself. Food is served either at the bar or in the dining room. It is traditional fayre and very good, dishes include homemade steak and ale pie and homemade lasagne. The pub runs a quiz every Tuesday and the first Sunday of each month. There are also bands every so often. They have a meat draw, which is drawn on Sunday lunchtime. For strangers to Oxford it also has an Aunt Sally on Wednesdays. This is an interesting local pastime and well worth the time to watch. In the summer there is a beer garden to sit out in and you can also watch the river traffic as the pub sits right on the River Thames and with disabled facilities and helpful staff throughout this makes the pub a suitable place for all. Paul and Lesley look forward to welcoming you, so come on down today.
