About the hotel
The Anchor is a charming characterful attractive Grade 11 listed hotel, pub and restaurant located on a picturesque riverside location on the banks of the Tyne. Only 5 minutes away from Langley Castle. The menu at the Anchor offers a quality selection of British dishes loving made with locally sourced ingredients.
The extensive menu offers 3 course meals as well as lighter snacks and sharing platters washed down with hand pulled ales, beers and lagers spirits or a glass of wine. 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. Or in finer weather enjoy the river views in our alfresco decking area. Food is freshly prepared and served Mon-Sat noon 'til nine. our legendary Snday lunch is served 12 until 'sold out', (around 6pm. ) We cater for functions and meetings and have private rooms for your special occasions, which we will tailor to suit your wishes.

Stayed for two nights at the anchor hotel on a visit to Hexham races.
The staff and all the other locals made us very welcome. The food was excellent especially the breakfast. The only down side is that the side of the building could do with a paint job as it does not give a good first impression but for all that I would certainly stay in this hotel again.
Very Welcoming !
I booked this hotel because it's not far from Hexham (and a day at Hexham Races).
The hotel has had lots of practice in looking after people - all the way back to 1422 . It's right next to the river and was rescued from decline around five years ago by owners who've clearly worked hard to bring it into the 21st century. I should imagine that, in summer, sitting with a drink on the riverside terrace is a wonderful experience - but (for us) this was Northumberland at the end of September - we settled happily for the cosy bar instead !
