What's On

The Anchor is one of the oldest public houses in Digbeth, Birmingham, England, dating back to 1797.

The current building was constructed in 1901 to a design by James and Lister Lea for the Holt Brewery Company. The terracotta on the façade is believed to have come from the Hathern Station Brick and Terracotta Company of Loughborough.

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. We have updated The Anchor (we lost the ‘INN’ bit owing to not having rooms or food available) without losing any of the character. Firstly we brought the standard of ale back to what it should be, widened the selection of drinks available then trained the staff on the service of the wine, cocktail, gin and Boilermaker drinks lists. Finally we gave her a lick of paint and a lot of love to create a comfortable space for you to enjoy your drink/catch-up or celebration.
