The Blue Anchor

Duck inside this historic alehouse and take a sip of over 500 years of history.

Once a monk’s rest house for pilgrims on their way to St Michael’s Mount, there has reportedly been an alehouse here since the 15th century.  Step inside today and you’ll find that the traditional layout with multiple bars and side rooms has been retained.

The Blue Anchor is one of the oldest original inns in Britain that continues to maintain a working brewery, boasting 600 years of brewing. Originally the monks produced a strong honey based mead but the pub now brews a number of Spingo ales to traditional recipes.

The inn still retains its character and you’ll often find live music being performed in the old skittle alley or main bars.
