Owners are welcoming, food is delicious, we had a great time. Definitely recommend if you're down for some low-key fun.

Classic laid back Bajan bar. Great music, great people and very tasty food. Usually something happening every night eg quiz, karaoke, music. Even though we were in an all inclusive hotel, we went back most nights for the crack.

The Golden Anchor was recommended to us by a couple we got talking to on Mullins Beach (as you do). We were in Barbados, staying at Villa Bruadair (worth checking out as this was an idyllic location and walking distance from all the amenities in Hole Town - would definitely stay there again!) with a group of friends. From the... More

Friday nights they have a live band, the pace is full of locals and visitors, and very lively. We ate there the food was good food and a good price. definitely worth a visit, even if you are at Folkstone and need some food.

For those who are used to the lonestar/tides etc it is easy to be put off by the exterior and basic tables if you are doing the drive by in the day. But take your nose out of the air and head down in your casual clothes and flats and have the best night. We went for the live music... More

This bar was opposite where we were staying and looked like fun It was Saturday night - karaoke 🎤 The locals were welcoming and a few half decent singers, we decided to pop back after dinner and the place was still rocking although the drink hadn't helped all the artists! Definitely go back

We have visited the golden anchor several times over the years now and each time we've been extremely happy with the level of service and the quality of food. This is by no means a posh eatery but the food is fresh, tasty and very generous in portion size. The owner is a British lady and always very chatty and... More
