Are you looking for a friendly local boozer serving real ale, a darts team, a pool table, or somewhere to hold a party or private function? Or are you just interested in the origin of the UK's pub names?
There are two common origins of the Anchor pub name. The first of course is the maritime connection, a ship's anchor, and many coastal pubs called the Anchor are likely to have this root. The second is a Christian biblican reference from the Letter to the Hebrews "we have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul - a hope".
