The Old Anchor is right by the Thames, Church of St helen and Almshouses. Approach the pub on foot by walking past St Helen’s. With a car park in a civic car park and walk, alternatively drive through South Abingdon and park or use the one-way route on The Wharf to drop passengers and park.
The Narrows opened in October 2013 after J D Wetherspoons beautifully converted the derelict former post office building, into a new and lively pub/restaurant, serving meals and drinks at fair prices.
The name refers back to the name given to this part of the High Street and Ock Street which narrowed with small lanes at this point in former times.
