Located in the heart of Darwen, The Anchor offers what every community pub should; a warm welcome, a great atmosphere and quality Cask ales.
Our pub has a large and popular beer garden for those rare sunny days and a cosy and contemporary interior; perfect for enjoying a drink with friends and family. Our location makes us the perfect place for a drink after a match at Ewood Park or Darwen Cricket Club. All live sport is shown on our many large screens so come and join us for a pint, whether it’s in commiseration or celebration!
Live sports not your thing? We host many live music and entertainment nights; catch a band or partake in some charity fundraising, there is always something going on at The Anchor! For those who just want to sit back and relax with a pint; we serve a wide range of award-winning Cask ales, world beers and wines, so there is plenty to choose from!
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
