The Blue Anchor Inn

Eating Out

The Blue Anchor Inn was one of the first pubs in South Wales to produce quality bar meals back in the 1980's. Since then we have gone from strength to strength, winning awards including the South Wales Food Pub of the year for 5 years, 2016/17, 2013, 2011, 2008 and 2006. We are Egon Ronay recommended and are included in the Michelin Eating out in Pubs guide since 2007 (the only South Wales entry in the guide), as well as the AA Pub Guide 2012, where we appear as Pick of the Pubs for the Vale of Glamorgan.

We opened our locally renowned restaurant, which seats up to 80 diners, in the early 1990’s. Since then we have been able to provide our customers with extremely popular Sunday lunches (booking usually essential) as well as our extensive and varied menus on Mondays to Saturdays (lunchtimes and evenings). Our wine list features quality, affordable, wines from around the world.

The Blue Anchor offers the choice of eating in our Restaurant or, more informally, downstairs in the bar. Wherever you choose to eat, our menus all have at their heart locally grown or reared produce, prepared to the highest standards by our expert team of chefs. Our team are specialists in producing quality, locally sourced and innovative dishes with an international flavour, as well as more traditional Welsh favourites. They are constantly looking to develop new and exciting dishes for our loyal customers.
