Anchor Inn Reopens After £1M Refit
12:43pm 16th May 2014
The Anchor Inn at Seatown has reopened after a major refurbishment costing more than £1M.
Owners Palmers Brewery have spent seven months carrying out extensive work to upgrade the facilities, creating a stunning terrace overlooking the beach and three boutique-style guest rooms with sweeping sea views.
'The Anchor Inn is one of our flagship properties and we have invested a substantial sum to revitalise the building and provide the quality experience that our customers deserve,' said John Palmer, Chairman of Palmers Brewery.
Jayson Perfect, Palmers Tenanted Trade Director, said: 'We wanted to keep the heritage and atmosphere of The Anchor while giving our customers an even better service.'
The pub closed for renovation in October 2013 and contractors battled against record-breaking winter gales to get the work completed for the spring.
Landlord Paul Wiscombe, who has run the pub for the last 10 years, said: 'The Anchor is looking really good and it is great to be open again.
