Eat Overlooking River Urr | Welcome to Anchor Inn, Kippford

Appreciate great value food and drink by the waterside in Kippford 

We have plenty of seats both inside and outside. In warmer weather, enjoy a meal or just a drink, and watch the world go by from our outside tables overlooking the river. When the weather is less conducive, everyone is welcome to relax next to the fire in our homely bar and snug. We stock all the usual beers, wines and spirits as well as an impressive array of malt whiskeys. 

In the summer we have these three Real Ales, in winter this may reduce to two:

  • Sulwath Brewers, Castle Douglas: ‘Criffel’ 4.6% ABV - An India pale ale with rounded hop and malt flavours and a delicate bitterness.
  • Harviestoun Brewery, Alva: ‘Bitter & Twisted’ 4.2%ABV - A blonde ale with a malty-sweet aroma and a floral and fruity hoppiness.
  • Caledonian Brewery, Edinburgh: ‘Deuchars IPA’ 3.8%ABV – “Evident hops and fruit are gently balanced by malt with a lingering bitter and hoppy aftertaste. Deuchars is a fabulous beer.” Roger Protz of The Good Beer Guide (CAMRA) reviewing this World Champion Cask Ale.

Food is our speciality and we have a regularly changing menu with classic pub dishes for both adults and children, based where possible on local produce. 

Our menu is enhanced with a daily fish menu, which takes advantage of what is available locally each day.

The Harbour Room and The Lounge are both ideal for family dinners and celebrations for up to 40 guests; we can put together special menu suggestions for your event.
