Situated on the Bridge of Haydon Bridge (which originally dates back to the 1300’s). The Anchor Hotel is a building steeped in history and it has been a Hotel in various guises for many years. Originating as a Jacobite Cross relating to medieval settlements, the Roman occupation and Jacobite revolutions the Hotel was also once a court house complete with hanging facilities outside in what is now the car park and garden.
The hotel rises out of the river Tyne enjoying a perfect position for direct access to the river, and lovely views. The salmon leap over the weir and sandy beaches and swimming holes are also at this point. Whatever the weather there is a good vantage point and a lovely aspect watching the river rage in flood in the winter or paddling in calmer waters.
The Hotel has a very friendly cosy bar and lounge where a real log fire blazes away. Or in finer weather enjoy the river views in our alfresco garden area and when the sun shines it shines here all day until it sets.
Food is freshly prepared by our chef de cuisine and served everyday noon ’til nine. We cater for functions and meetings and have private rooms for your special occasions, which we will tailor to suit your wishes.
