The Golden Cap is the highest point along the south coast of England at 191m (around 600ft), and the Anchor Inn lies about a mile to the east and with an altitude a lot closer to zero. If you like a quiet pub, this pub definitely isn't in the summer, but there's a reason for its popularity, the real ale and food are excellent and it's on a lovely bit of coast that forms part of the 'Jurassic Coast'. There's plenty of photos of the area inside the pub, along with examples of the wide variety of fossils that have been uncovered. It's the perfect pit stop if you're doing the South West Coast Path. Three Palmers ales are usually available. Palmers is brewed close by in Bridport, where its been brewed since 1794. Decent pub grub is also available. We've always tended to sit out in the pub garden to the side of the pub overlooking the sea. Very pleasant!
