Our Story

Welcome To The Anvil Inn

The Anvil Inn….a traditional country pub serving great quality homemade food, homemade desserts, great real ales and a warm friendly welcome.

We serve three ever changing real ales sourced all over the country but focusing on local breweries. Landlord Karl takes great pride in his real ales and always ensure a variety and varying strengths from 3.6% up to 5% plus!

Landlady Kath looks after the business operation, and with the help of a great team we serve traditional, wholesome, well cooked and homemade food. All ingredients are locally sourced where possible and in some cases provided by locals and regulars.
