There's a fair bit of history to this riverside pub and kitchen in Hammersmith - it was first licensed back in 1772. Today it's a family-run venue, with its expansive views of the river and Hammersmith Bridge making it a west London draw, especially when sunny days hit.
There's variety to the food menu. Dishes range from mussels, fillets of sea bass and wild mushroom tagliatelle to sausage and mash, steak and Guinness pies, burgers, salad niçoise and smoked salmon carpaccio with soft-boiled quail eggs, goat's cheese, capers and caviar. Sunday roasts are available each week, too.
Each of the bottles on the wine list is available by three different glass sizes. Two bottles of Champagne and a bottle of prosecco also feature.
Licensed in 1722 the Blue Anchor is a unique, traditional, riverside family-run pub offering a warm and sociable atmosphere.

This is a totally brilliant place to be on a sunny day. There are tables outside right on the river so the view is amazing. Food is OK but you go for the view and the atmosphere. It gets really busy in the summer particularly at weekends but worth going and being part of the buzz and feeling slightly smug if you actually get a table!
I used to live Hammersmith and this pub was my favorite. The area is really calm, by the river. It's very nice specially on Sundays. And if you don't live in the area, it's just five minutes away from the tube.
Great pub grub with massive portions, several real ales, right on the Thames and full of history and charm. Ticks all the boxes!
