A pub on the Suffolk coast has been named one of the best to visit in the UK. 

While the county has a number of award-winning pubs, some always go the extra mile. 

Travel writers at The Telegraph have chosen The Anchor at Walberswick, near Southwold, as one of the best pubs in the country worth travelling for. 

The pub, in The Street and owned by Mark Dorber, was praised for its "excellent" food and drink, as well its range of rooms available for guests to enjoy.

Experts said: "Mark Dorber has forgotten more about beer – and wine, for that matter – than most of us will ever know. Formerly the manager at the White Horse in Parsons Green, Fulham, he and his wife, Sophie, have been running The Anchor in Walberswick, just across the water from chi-chi Southwold, since 2004.

"There is excellent food and drink, as you’d expect, plus 10 rooms.

"August is a good time to visit, when the pub hosts its annual beer and oyster festival."

The Anchor was also recognised in the Good Food Guide in October 2023.

It is a landmark pub in the area and is regularly visited by people from Southwold, to the north, who walk down from the town via the Bailey bridge over the River Blyth.
