Welcome to The Anchor Inn

Barnoldswick Lancashire

Sadly we are now unable to welcome you to eat within our beautiful canalside pub.
Fresh, Wintry walks along the canal with the promise of a pub lunch by a roaring fire along with wagging tails & their owners will have to wait for now... We can’t wait for this to be back!

Until then we are offering takeaways carefully crafted by our chefs for adventurers getting out and about safely and alongside the government guidelines...

Although our pub is just doing takeaways at the moment, emails and messages will still be answered – but please bear with us as our response time may be a little slower.

As always THANKYOU for your continued support & love!

We will all be together in better a better world very soon!

Stay safe and well.

The Anchor Inn Team.


We will be serving our new look menu, pouring our usual great drinks & still providing the best in Northern Hospitality! however our booking procedures will have to change a little for now.

We have added extra hand sanitiser stations, temperature recordings for staff, reduced our amount of tables, increased sanitising & cleaning times, and introduced Ozone machines which will be sanitising the air in the pub when closed.

Throughout the pub we can only offer table service; all guests must be seated at a table, that has been distanced according to government guidelines . 

Inside Dining:
If you wish to dine, bookings will need to be made on line for the restaurant with a maximum of 8 people from two households. Pre - booking is highly advised to avoid disappointment.

Inside Drinking:
If you wish to visit us for drinks we will have some tables available on a first come first served basis. If the pub is at capacity there will be a queuing system on the door and we will try our hardest to seat you where possible.

Outside Dining:
Our outside dining area will also be booking only and these tables will be released only if we have good weather.

Outside dining tables can be booked by calling the pub on 01282 850055 between 9:00am-11:30am 24/48 hours prior to the day of booking.   We respond quickest on Facebook, however, so feel free to contact us using this method. Only one table can be booked at a time & we CANNOT push tables together, unfortunately.

Our maximum booking size outside will be 6 people to a 6 person table & 8 to the octagonal tables.

Outside Drinking:

The Anchor Inn is a fabulous, canal side, village pub restaurant located in the picturesque village of Salterforth. Roaring log fire, real ales, great gins and top notch food are some of the reasons people love to visit either from their boat, after long walks with the dogs or for that special occasion. No strangers here, just regulars we haven’t met yet...
