The modern Anchor in East Street was built in 1898. It was the 'tap' of the Anchor Hotel. In January 1975 a Horsham Branch of CAMRA was formed at this pub. Having been closed for 30 years, this pub was reopened in February 2016 by Dark Star Brewery, but with the sale of that brewer to Fuller's in March 2018, the pub became free-of-tie. It continues to be popular with customers both local and from afar. Refurbished in an early-20th century style. A cask beer club offers 20% off all cask beers between 4p and 6pm Tue-Fri.
