Successful pub operator Andrew Coath and Bedfordshire brewer and pub company Charles Wells have reopened the Anchor at Aspley Guise near Milton Keynes following a transformative £600,000 refurbishment.
The new Anchor, which has space for 96 diners and drinkers, reflects the best in British design blending the traditional with the contemporary to offer a relaxed, home from home environment.
Al fresco dining spaces to the front and rear of the pub offer a further tranquil setting for customers to unwind over a meal or drink.
A warm welcome awaits customers from the Epic Managers team led by Coath, who also runs pubs including 185 Watling Street in Towcester and who previously ran venues in Salford, near Milton Keynes; Woburn and Bedford.
Coath says: “We are really excited to have opened the doors to the fantastic new Anchor and are delighted to be working with Charles Wells to have created this eclectic British pub. The Anchor will be the heart of the local community, but also offer an exciting new eating and drinking venue for people in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and beyond.”
Customers can expect menus which showcase the best of British produce and mix the contemporary and classic, with dishes changing regularly so guests will always find something new and exciting to tempt their tastebuds.
The menu is overseen by chef director Mark Austin whose experience includes the Swan at Salford and the Luton Hoo Hotel, with the Anchor’s kitchen team also led by talented head chef Stefano Boi.
