Following the Government roadmap, we will be keeping our pub closed until we can reopen after Monday 17th May. We are excited then to welcome you into our indoor and outdoor areas. Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you very soon.


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.
