Malden man left this review about The Anchor Inn

Set in a pleasant location on the canal basin called Diglis Marina just outside the city centre, this is a friendly old style pub retaining two rooms and a small snug. The right hand side room has the bar, quarry tiled floor, banquettes and small stools at Britannia tables, the side room is split level and has polished floorboards, more geared up for eating in here although there are a selection of board games on a shelf. Both rooms have tiled fireplaces, the leaded windows have a central anchor motif. To the rear overlooking the waterside is a pleasant and sunny on Saturday morning, terrace with a long outbuilding adjacent which houses a skittle alley.
The barman was welcoming and chatty, four beers on, Bank's Bitter and Sunbeam plus two from Ringwood, Fortyniner and Boondoggle. Food served, they apparently do a legendary breakfast here but I'd had mine in the hotel, sausage and mash just £3.95, sandwiches from the same price, ploughmans £5.95.
A real old school pub in a quiet part of town that is worth taking the trouble to find.
