Blue AnchorTucked away in the shadow of Hammersmith Bridge this small, but perfectly formed, traditional riverside pub offers a peaceful retreat from the chaos of Hammersmith’s relentless one-way system and energetic rowing fraternity.

Famously appearing in the film ‘Sliding Doors’, The Blue Anchor is a great location on and off the set and is truly a pub for all seasons. In the winter, candlelight flickers from each small, round table while Van Morrison croons comfortingly from the sound system. Old photographs of the area and an array of appropriately nautical nick-knacks provide a fitting backdrop to an evening of composed drinking. In the summer, customers adjourn outside to wooden benches perched right next to the river. It can get a bit busy as drinkers vie for space with local rowing teams but the view of Hammersmith Bridge on a clear, warm night is worth a bit of elbow jostling and a plastic glass or two.

The standard beers, wines and spirits are served here, there’s a function / dining room upstairs and Thai food on the menu at the weekend. Whether you’re languishing outside in the sun or perched inside on a stool by the Georgian bow window, The Blue Anchor is a perfect place to settle down and sup.
