The Blue Anchor

The Blue Anchor is a super spot to ‘moor up’ for a few hours - with locally sourced ingredients and freshly cooked food, delicious drinks and friendly service on offer.

With the pub close to Ashdown Forest and set within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it’s the perfect place for walkers to find respite and refreshment  - and it’s a dining destination in its own right too, thanks to our homemade food.

Christmas at the Blue Anchor

It’s never too soon to mention the ‘C’ word….we’d like to take this opportunity to provide you with a copy of both our Christmas Fayre and Christmas Day Menus, and just explain a few things that may be different this year.

With our new Head Chef to lead us into the Festive Season this year, we have an exciting Christmas Fayre menu to offer you as either 2 or 3 courses. It will be served between 12-3 and 6-9pm Mon – Sat (Covid guideline dependant!).

In addition to this, (again Covid guideline dependant) we are planning on running our usual Friday Night Party Nights on the 4th / 11th / 18th December. This will include the 3 course menu, and the addition of Live Music. Unfortunately, you will have to refrain from bringing the dancing shoes this year, but you will still be able to enjoy the music from your table.

Every night though you will find a happy, chatty atmosphere, good food and a team who’ll love looking after you.
With all the new restrictions we have unfortunately lost a few tables, so if you feel tempted, get booked in early to avoid missing out! As the norm currently too, we are only able to take bookings for a maximum of 6 people, this includes children and babies.

We do feel this season may feel a bit different than previous years, but we will do our utmost to ensure you have a good time and feel festive.

 Kind Regards
Amy, Emma, Jessie, Tom & The Blue Anchor Team

Blue Anchor, Crowborough

Even if you’re just after a quick drink, The Blue Anchor is the place to be. There’s a great wine selection here, and a number of superb ales from Britain’s oldest brewer, Shepherd Neame.

You can cosy up with your pint by one of two real fires, or head out into the spacious garden and patio when the sun shines. You’ll still be able to pick up the wifi signal outside, so a working lunch is a distinct possibility!

In summer, you can even hold a garden party or barbecue out here - or hire space inside for parties, celebratory meals and wedding receptions all year round.

Whatever brings you to The Blue Anchor, a warm welcome is assured. In the 18th century, the pub was said to be the resort of various smugglers, poachers and other lawless inhabitants of the district - but now, you’re greeted by a somewhat friendlier crowd! 


What our customers say...

At last the Blue Anchor is being run by friendly people and is serving good pub food. After a makeover it is smart and welcoming. Had possibly the best bannoffee pie ever.

Friendly & polite staff, lovely food, prompt service, very clean/tidy and welcoming... I had whitebait (first time!!), the duck (specials menu) for a main course, and chocolate brownie & ice cream for dessert - would highly recommend all three dishes! I would go back to this pub again.
