Whether you have just popped in for a drink, or are staying for dinner, the bar is the most characterful part of the pub, being the original blacksmith’s workshop. It has a steep pitched timbered ceiling, original stone furnace, tools, iron candle chandelier and wood burning stove.
Even though The Anvil is very much food orientated, it remains a country public house at the heart of the village, used by walkers, cyclists, darts players and locals too! Last Friday in the month sees Pie Night, a pork pie extravaganza much enjoyed by Sawdonians where we eat, judge, and shout about this month’s offering from the nominated pork pie “fetcher”. It’s a serious matter, no pickles allowed!
And you can actually sit at the bar and have a drink – a rarity these days.
You will find three Yorkshire hand pulled real ales, and at least fourteen wines by the glass. If there’s really nothing you fancy, we will happily open a bottle for you.
Dogs are most welcome in the bar with well behaved owners.
