Push through the ancient window-paned doors and British accents will pop and crackle as they mingle with island dialects and "Jeepers Creepers," the 1930s jazz song. Red and green carpet, lit softly by lanterns, guides your way through Blue Anchor British Pub. Red curtains hang over old-fashioned windows; tea kettles hang suspended from the ceiling; and old-world paintings decorate the walls. A bookshelf runs around the perimeter of the joint, stacked high with trinkets, old tomes, and decoy ducks. An assortment of national flags hang in every direction on the wooden walls, creating a historic feeling.
