Rooted in rural charm and British tradition, The Anchor Inn is a country pub wedding venue tucked away in serene solitude in the heart of Hampshire. This elegantly styled setting boasts a regal sensibility displayed by the tasteful Tudor and antique furnishings adorning each boutique bedroom. In this network of cosy, graceful rooms, you can host every stage of your wedding day with all the ease and calm to be found at the edge of the South Downs Countryside.

Facilities and Capacity

Fully licensed to host civil ceremonies, The Anchor Inn invites you to immerse yourself in their beautiful surroundings. Exclusively yours for the day, the venue contains a choice of private indoor and outdoor spaces. The State Room is the property's place of pride, its grand walls covered in portraits of Britains finest figures. Amidst the enveloping coffee and caramel hues, you can hold an intimate ceremony surrounded by 45 nearest and dearest. After, the room comes alive as a stately dining space for small wedding parties, with its distinguished wooden table comfortably seating up to 22 for a candlelit meal. There is also a private terrace where guests can toast the day with cigars and fine drinks. On warmer evenings, the enchanting courtyard garden offers partially covered seating and inspiring views for an open-air reception. Larger wedding parties of up to 75 can enjoy a meal in the pub's rustic-style restaurant, while up to 100 guests are invited to drink and dance at leisure. At the end of the evening, five luxurious bedrooms await, each one individually designed. Two of these are pet-friendly, allowing your four-legged guest to relax in blissful comfort.

Services Offered

With the help of The Anchor Inn's friendly and experienced staff, you needn't worry about a thing when planning your wedding. This dedicated team will work with you to craft a completely bespoke celebration that allows you to set the pace and relax into the day. You will also have access to appointed wedding items such as a wooden easel table plan, table signs, and place cards. Food forms the heart of this country inn, with special appreciation for local and seasonal produce. The in-house chefs offer a rich selection of menus crafted with precision and passion for the country lifestyle. In true British pub fashion, an array of quality local brand wines, ales, and spirits is available throughout the celebrations.
