The Anchorage has become a firm favourite for visitors and locals alike over the years, offering a variety of food options along with its small, friendly bar.   

The restaurant is open for lunch, teas and coffees throughout the day providing the perfect pitstop when travelling round the island. 

The evening service gives customers the chance to sit back, relax and enjoy stunning views over the Sound of Harris, with unforgettable sunsets.  The menu offers an array of mainly Scottish dishes using local, sustainable produce where possible.  Fresh, local seafood is landed just meters from the restaurant door and features daily.  To compliment the food, diners can partake in a gin from the island’s own distillery or a local craft beer which is brewed in the neighbouring village.   

If you are looking for a little bit of The Anchorage – and some luxury – in your own home, then the “Anchorage at Home” range could be for you.  This new click & collect service provides customers with a box of Harris luxury, ready to heat in the comfort of their own home or holiday accommodation. Among the products available are shellfish from the pristine waters of the Hebrides, Highland-reared steak (traceable & sustainable) from our family-run butcher and fresh bread, baked in-house by our head chef, Tony.  See    

A takeaway menu is available for those passing by or looking for a night off from the cooking.  Pre-ordering with as much notice as possible is advised.   

A children’s menu is available along with baby changing facilities.   

The Anchorage is fully accessible to wheelchair users and those with impaired mobility.  

Dietary requirements are catered for (the more notice the better).   

Booking essential, for both the bar (covid-safe requirement) and restaurant at all times.
