Our Head chef, Nick Smith has over 20 years experience in the hospitality industry. ‘I have been fortunate and humbled to work with some exceptional chefs both in the UK and across Europe. This experience has developed into appreciation for and a desire to only use the highest quality produce available, which fits perfectly with the Norfolk coast. The quality and variety available throughout the year is amazing through our local suppliers, both farmed and foraged. I have a first class team and it's our aim to take advantage of this whenever possible to create tasty, memorable dishes for our customers’.
The Anchor is also home to the wonderful Temple Seal Trips.
