Here at The Anchor we’re pleased to have been awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand award in 2015, which recognises outstanding food, served at moderate prices. Currently, the only restaurant in Essex to hold this prestigious award, it is something that we’re very proud of.


EE_Award_White2015 also saw us win an Exquisite Excellence award for ‘Outstanding Experience’ for outstanding food and dining experience in Essex.

Working With What’s In Season

Located in the heart of Essex, a beautiful county with fantastic produce on our doorstep, we really are spoilt for choice here at The Anchor Riverside.

We like to use local produce and celebrate our county’s natural larder and pride ourselves in working closely with our local suppliers to ensure that only the freshest, ethically-sourced, seasonal food makes it onto our menus.

Our Head Chef, Daniel Watkins is passionate about the ‘field to plate’ philosophy. He believes that by working with the seasons and sourcing produce that’s as local as possible, every fresh ingredient is used when it’s at its very best.

This understanding of seasonality not only creates a variety of flavours, textures and definition in every dish, but also means menus are regularly updated to offer you new dishes to enjoy.

“The kitchen team and I would like to offer a warm welcome to you from The Anchor. We’re all incredibly proud of the outstanding reputation for food excellence we’ve built in just over five years. We’ve worked hard to develop menus that are diverse, balanced and bursting with flavour using only the finest, locally sourced ingredients available. Both the team and I look forward to seeing you at The Anchor soon.”
