A Dorset seaside pub has been named Tourism Pub of the year by Visit England.

The Anchor in Seatown is run by independent brewery Palmers.

"SIBA would like to congratulate The Anchor and its owners Palmers Brewery on winning this prestigious tourism award. A traditional English pub is still top of tourists' must visit list and where could be better than The Anchor, which is still going strong after 160 years of serving fantastic British brewed beer!" Mike Benner, SIBA Managing Director.
The Anchor, which serves a full range of beers from independent craft brewer Palmers, edged out The Howard Arms in the West Midlands and The Tankerville Arms in the North East, who were named runners-up.
