Very good seafood

Went to this place to eat some fresh seafood and wasn't disappointed. First time I had the crab with salad and it was really good. Also tried my friends calamari and it tasted so fresh! Had to go back for the king prawns - best dish without a doubt. It is a food serving pub so don't expect... read more

We walked around Tenby looking for a pub to visit on a busy Friday night and found the Hope and Anchor to be the most inviting. Good choice of ales and plenty of outdoor seating with a great atmosphere where we found everyone so friendly. Great place for food too.

Visited Tenby for 4 nights in August and ate here for 3 of those days - everywhere else just couldn't compete. Amazing food, worth the wait! Staff were really friendly and always had a smile on their face. You must visit here if your in Tenby!!

Great place to eat. Food excellent. Best to reserve a table as they get very busy and it isn't very large. We had a table upstairs which was much quieter than downstairs. Staff were very nice and helpful.

The pub does offer some gluten... More

The Tenby Information Centre sent me here and I was not disappointed! You may have to wait to sit down, it may seem tatty, old and very cramped but boy, do they do good food? Oh YES! The fish and chips looked monster but the Crab sandwich....mmm! Staff were very energetic and well trained, observant and attentive. In retrospect I... More
