The Wheel House extension

2007 saw the addition and opening of The Wheel House doubling our capacity and enabling us to meet the demands of our always ever increasing popularity. This gave us space for a delightful dedicated stage and entertainments area.

A feature of this new extension, arranged at ground floor and at gallery mezzanine level, are the handsome, chunky, wooden tables - some of them huge - making it an ideal venue for weddings and parties.  Sea-faring paraphernalia abounds, which combined with low beamed ceilings, atmospheric lighting and great food, makes for an unforgettable dining experience.

You can view our menu from Dining Experience on the navigation bar above, but please note this is a guide only and menus and prices may be subject to change.

This charming Inn, specialising in sea-food but offering a menu to suit all tastes (You can view our menu from Dining Experience on the navigation bar above, but please note this is a guide only and menus and prices may be subject to change).  The Inn is reputedly over 450 years old and was originally opened as a Seamen's Mission. 

At that time Brunel had not built the Atmospheric Railway, and the water used to go nearly up to Dawlish. We are told the Anchor was a haven for seamen and smugglers and is still haunted by a friendly ghost and his dog.

Add to all of this, the unique charm of the quaint little harbour of Cockwood, just a few steps away - edged by a low cobbled stone wall, surrounded by baskets of flowers in summer, fairy lights in winter - and you have a truly magical setting for the Anchor Inn.

Sit outside and watch the Cockwood swans whilst soaking up the last of the setting sun in the evening, enjoying one of our great draught beers; and in summer, relax and, whilst still within sight, let your kiddies fish for crabs under the duct of an historic Brunel bridge; or watch the steam train (Torbay Express) and other noteworthy trains which travel the Brunel railway, a veritable train-spotters paradise.

The charming village of Cockwood boasts a large and lovely village green, also home to canadian geese, ducks and other wild birds, the green being edged by a natural riverlet.

As well as our extensive a la carte menu, bar snack menu and choice of daily specials, we also have  Fish of the Day and details of this will be found in the restaurant area.

The a la carte is available in all areas, but you might like to take advantage of the exclusive, intimate atmosphere of our smaller, candlelit restaurant, located away from the stage and entertainment area. It is wise to make a dining reservation. If you require assistance with the contents of any of our food i.e. nuts or flour we will be pleased to assist. All of our food is specially prepared for you and therefore may take a little time before it is ready. We are certain however you will find this short wait well worth while.
