Once owned by Wem Brewery, also by Wrekin Brewery of Wellington, the Anchor is a traditional one roomed pub conveniently placed opposite Theatre Severn. The pleasant front area has a mixture of exposed brickwork and wood panelling. At the other end of the bar is a small lounge area with comfy seating and a darts area. There are several TVs showing music/sport dotted around the pub. New management took over in March 2016. They will be known to a number of locals as they previously had a fairly lengthy spell running the Red Barn, so will hopefully add some much needed stability to the pub. They have already instigated a refurbishment which has left the pub smart if fundamentally unchanged in layout. However there are now usually four ales available on handpump. Note the later opening hours on Mondays when the pub & kitchen staff take a well-deserved break!
