The Anchor Digbeth

The Anchor in Digbeth is a place of comfort to enjoy real ale, ciders, craft beers, wine, spirits and even cocktails – modern drinking in a traditional boozer.

The Anchor is one of the oldest public houses in Digbeth, Birmingham, dating back to 1797. The current building was constructed in 1901 to a design by James and Lister Lea for the Holt Brewery Company.

On 10 December 1991 the building was designated Grade II listed building status, along with other nearby pubs such as the White Swan. The pub won the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) award of ‘Regional Pub of the Year’ in 1996/7, 1998/9, 2003/4 and again 2007/8. Taken over By Raising Bars LTD on 8Th August 2016 – Julian Rose-Gibbs and his team including Jacob Clarke and Jason McGreen began sympathetically refurbishing the boozer without closing to enable the regulars and existing staff to become part of the transformation.

The present incarnation offers a relaxed cool, dog friendly, vibe with a virtual jukebox, pool table, seating out front, three side rooms and a maritime themed beer garden at rear.

Expect a wide selection of drinks with trained the staff serving wine, cocktails, gin, spirits, ciders, beers and craft ales. You can also order a traditional cob to soak up the ale. Local breweries such as Dig Brew Co are represented and delivered regularly, the brewery is just a stone’s throw away.

Open every day of the week, this pub is a perfect watering hole when in Digbeth and right next to Digbeth Coach Station.

Original features have been retained and the pub offers a friendly professional service with a diverse mix of customers. Well worth making a detour for, plenty of nooks and crannies to explore whilst whiling away the hours in this beautiful old building.
