More about The Rope and Anchor

The new business partners for this site will ideally be hands on, owner operators with a good level of catering experience, having the ability to drive and maximise food sales.  A passion to deliver Wadworth casks ales to the highest standard, to engage with the locally community as well as the many tourists that visit annually would be an advantage.

This is a great opportunity for a new Business Partner to sustain and build on an already solid business in a fantastic and sought-after location on the South Coast.





The Rope and Anchor sits in an enviable location just metres from the bustling Poole Quay which throughout the year hosts many events from folk weekends to bike meets.  The Rope and Anchor has been successfully operated by the current Business Partners with a variety of themed days and nights complimented by a solid food offer including Sunday lunches.  A new Partner here would have the opportunity to build on an already solid trade.
