The Anchor

We did not try this establishment as our local guide took us straight past it to another hostelry. Note the colour co-ordination between the Magnolia and the pub walls. .

A pity you could stop at this lovely place Bill!
Bill Phillips: There were so many Richard but we did stop at another one which was delightful

That anchor looks a bit dauntingly similar to a guillotine, Bill...perhaps sad endings have come to unruly guests?
Bill Phillips: I think that Anchor is a tiller Ray

Oh, this is a wonderful pub -and a lovely old merry England picture. Why did you pass it? I read also the words 'Welcome to the Anchor'. I like the colourful houses in East- Anglia, painted with pig-blood as you might know.
Bill Phillips: We ended up at another pub which was delightful Philine....not enough time to try them all!

You are quite right: yellow flowers next to this wall might be more than a little disconcerting
Bill Phillips: No doubt some would claim such a juxtaposition as art...

Local guides know best, though this looks a fine place
Bill Phillips: He nearly took us to a Costa type place but I rebelled and we went to another pub which was delightful
This is a good photograph Bill, unlike the song.
Bill Phillips: One of the worst songs I have managed to find Chad

It looks lovely, Bill. A good excuse to go back and give it a try.
Bill Phillips: Sounds like a good idea Pauline
I like painted brick very much and it does match the magnolia perfectly.
Bill Phillips: I wonder if it was intentional?

Surely you needed to have visited both - purely int he name of research of course. Good of them to paint to pub to match the local foliage.
Bill Phillips: Time did not allow but another time perhaps
Very nice Bill. A good time for a photograph
Bill Phillips: It was good timing but not intentionally so Janet
i like that colour on the blossoms but cannot say the same for the pub walls. but that would not keep me out of it, Bill!
Bill Phillips: It would not be my choice but it wouldn't stop me going in either grin

I think I prefer the more subtle shades of the Magnolia.

As for the song .. I think I will pass
Bill Phillips: I agree on all three.....the song is truly dreadful
You did well to stay away, Bill - it is probably the purple eater itself - as you hint!
Bill Phillips: You never know Tom....you never know
It's really great the way they matched up the colors! I loved that song when I was a kid!
Bill Phillips: It is allowable when you are a kid grin
They selected a rich vibrant colour which probably stands out against the neighbouring properties and I would guess make it easy to identify the pub if you were looking for it.
Bill Phillips: My son in Law is colour blind....I wonder if it would apply to him?
