Where's the best place to quench your thirst after a nice coastal walk?

Well, The Anchor Inn, Seatown, has made the list of regional finalists for a 'Britain’s Best Post-Walk Pint’ accolade.

The award comes from outdoor clothing and equipment store Mountain Warehouse, which, every year, hunts for the nation’s favourite pub in which a ramblers can rest weary legs.

The company asked each of its stores to nominate its favourite local walk and pub. Nominations were rigorously judged by a Mountain Warehouse panel at the London headquarters based on their proximity to local walking routes, food and drink offerings, facilities and customer experience.

Amongst the 12 finalists is The Anchor Inn, deemed an 'environmentally conscious' pub and praised for offering customers a free cup of coffee if they fill a bucket with litter picked from the nearby beach front.

It was noted for the circular four-mile trek nearby which takes you through farmland, woodland and hilly terrain and the beautiful Golden Cap, from which point walkers can enjoy breath-taking views of Chesil Beach, West Bay and Lyme.

A spokesman for Mountain Warehouse said: "The Anchor Inn will be waiting at the end of your voyage with open arms, and, more importantly, a locally-brewed pint of Palmers Ale. Whilst soaking up the sea air, friendly staff will serve you an eclectic menu all made from local produce. What’s more, The Anchor Inn offers a free coffee in return for a bucket of litter collected from the local area to encourage locals to keep beaches plastic free."

As well as the honour of the ‘Britain’s Best Post-Walk Pint’ crown for 2019, the winning pub will receive an engraved tankard trophy and a £500 bar tab to share a celebratory drink with locals.

To vote, members of the public will need to select a pub from the list of 12 regional finalists online. Upon voting, they will be offered a 15 per cent off code for their next purchase at Mountain Warehouse and will be entered into a prize competition to win £100 worth of vouchers for the store.
