We are a roadside coaching inn, which has origins in the 15th century. You will be assured of a warm and friendly welcome when you call in at The Anchor Inn, either in the winter with our roaring log fires or in the summer with views over the open countryside. Relax and step back in time, with many of the period features retained from wood beams and oak panelled walls.
Our extensive menu ranges from our homemade pies to fine cuisine using local produced meats and produce from the Peak District, please see the menu page for our up to date menu.
With cask ales, fine wines, spirits (not just the drinkable kind!) and soft drinks available, there is something for every ones tastes.
Functions catered for.
Our location is central to explore this area of Derbyshire with the Plague Village of Eyam, Castleton and with it's Caverns, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Bakewell, famous for it's puddings, all within a 10 minutes drive from the inn.
History of the Inn;
The Anchor Inn became an ale house in 1699 before that it started life as a farmhouse, with many farmers turning to brewing ale to increase their income and selling too thirsty travellers.
Over the years many landlords and families have lived and passed through the inn and a few have remained and still haunt the Anchor to this day. One is William Swindell who died in 1825 aged 15 and is still here.
Tideswell is one of the oldest villages in the Peak District and with its magnificent parish church, is sometimes called 'The Cathedral of the Peak', its well worth a visit.
