The Anchor Inn

The Challenge

Boroughbridge local Lesley took on the Anchor Inn in September 2020. She faced 18 months of opening, closing and trading with restrictions due to Covid-19. The site was also starting to look tired and faced multiple maintenance issues during Lesley’s first few months.

The Solution

Lesley worked incredibly hard to lift the site and make herself a success. The trade was picking up even with various restrictions in place. It was obvious to the Red Oak team that Lesley was the right person for the Anchor Inn so we came together to deliver her a pub that matched her high standards. 18 months after she first moved in, the Anchor Inn had a full new signage and lighting scheme, new toilets, an internal decorative scheme and furniture to match.


“The Anchor is a proper community pub and I’m delighted with the renovation from Red Oak Taverns.  Working with Red Oak Tavern has been easy.  They have been very supportive throughout the investment and took on my ideas and opinions for the pub.”
