Concerns – No signs of the Anchor re-opening?

The Anchor Remains Closed.
[Open letter to the brewery linked here.]

Hope everyone is keeping well as the Covid lockdown drags on in 2021.

Although nationally, the re-opening of pubs may now be being planned for an April / May timescale, it seems that Sam Smith’s has not yet recruited a new pub management team for the Anchor, even though the job advert deadline was December 2020. If you might be that person, you are still encouraged to apply at Sam Smith’s “Run a Pub”.

Meantime, since a number of other Sam Smith’s pubs appear to be permanently closed, we remain concerned for the brewery’s long terms plans for the Anchor as a sustainable business. So, as suggested previously, we have now sent an open letter – linked here – of our concerns and suggestions to the brewery management.
