The Anchor Inn on the Wirral has had a huge make over recently. It has turned this country pub into a super chic destination spot. With only half an hours drive from Liverpool, and easily reachable from anywhere on the Wirral, it’s certainly the place to come and cosy up in.
*This was a complimentary experience.
The Grade II listed building has kept all its charm, but has turned the inside in to a modern, but cosy boutique dining experience. There are so many aspects of the new decor that I love. The velvet finish chairs, the art deco pictures on the walls, and all the plants dotted around. The roaring fires have been kept, and thank goodness, they add that special touch to a winters day.
It’s not only the decor that got a revamp. The new menu at The Anchor Inn is amazing, and mouthwatering just from reading it. We were fortunate enough to try it out and from our small selection of it I can tell you it was phenomenal. Best meal I have had in ages.
What We Ordered
As usual, me and Ste spotted garlic bread on the menu, so of course we ordered it. The Garlic Pizzette was delightful. Also highly recommend the Halloumi fries.
For my main I couldn’t resist the Fillet Steak. This steak dish is one of the best I’ve had. Not only was it cooked to perfection (medium rare), it was served with a mini caramelised onion and Stilton tart, plus chunky chips. I chose to have it with peppercorn sauce also, and I did not want the dish to end.
Ste went for the Dirty Burger, an absolutely epic display of a burger if I must say. I had to sneak a bite, and that too was delicious. It was stacked high, and served with fries and a dipping sauce.
For dessert we ordered my favourite choice, always, a warm Chocolate Brownie. As well as the brand new Melting Chocolate and Hazelnut Bomb. This was incredible. It came with piping hot melted white chocolate, poured over a chocolate dome, that had a hazelnut and chocolate filling.
Popping In For A Drink?
If you’re just after a drink here then no worries, the bar is stocked and waiting. It’s the perfect spot to come in only for a drink also as the bar area is lovely.
There’s an excellent selection of Gin, Wines, Mixers, Champagnes, Beer and of course hot and soft drinks.
For me, checking out the drinks menu is just as important as the food. I love to read through the gin mixers, cocktails and wines. I am super impressed with the selection of gin & tonics, but mainly the fact they serve my favourite wine ever, The Palm by Whispering Angel.
Having an open log fire in the bar area really does make The Anchor a popular and perfect spot to grab a drink & put the world to rights.
When Can I Go Back?
Since the night I visited The Anchor Inn, I have thought none stop about going back. There are so many other amazing things on the menu that I really want to try.
The Sticky Pig Sharing platter looks & sounds amazing. The Sunday lunch also looks mouthwatering. Plus for special occasions they have Afternoon Tea served with a nice glass of Fizz. They have thought of everything.
If you’re looking for the perfect spot to cosy up in over Christmas then the Anchor is for you. They’ve got festive nights & deals on over Christmas and New Year, as well as their delicious menu daily.
What do you think then guys? Will you be making a day of it on the Wirral soon?
