Summer Drinks at the Anchor

We'll be visiting the lovely Anchor on Bankside for a few more summer drinks.

The Anchor dates from 1615, and its former patrons include Samuel Pepys and Dictionary writing Samuel Johnson.

It's believed Pepys sat here and watched London burn just across the river in 1666.

It's also possible that Sheakspear popped in for a drink or two, due to it's close proximity to the Globe & Rose Theatre is was a favourite with Actors.

Later its beleived pirates and smugglers used to hang out here.

Today it's a maze of rooms and includes a large river side terrace and roof top bar - so perfect for summer drinks.
