This pub has a very good vibe and very welcoming. Did not eat here but others told us the food was very good.

Amazing food here!! I don't need to say more! Third time there on three different occasions. Lots of fresh fish options, e.g fresh lobster caught and cooked the same day!! Really recommend.

My wife and I both had sea bass on a rocket salad with a side of chips to share. What a fantastic meal washed down with a fine bottle of wine.

Had lunch here today and was a real surprise. Looks great from the outside and quirky inside. Had the fish platter to share and came piping hot and really tasty too. Our dog was welcome in the upstairs seating area which made life easier as the weather was a bit blustery and chilly. Well recommended

Before setting off on a family holiday I searched online for 'real ale pubs in Tenby' (and food - because I was thinking of others, obviously) and up popped the Hope & Anchor. I had high hopes, if you'll excuse the pun, and boy did it live up to my expectations. Fantastic selection of ales, friendly staff and locals (including... More

Ate here twice on our week on Tenby. Had the seafood platter for two, delicious. Best calamari. Second time I went for the calamari but a bit disappointed as was nothing like I had on the platter. Big portions.

My girlfriend and I stopped here for a light lunch on a Monday afternoon. Inside it's like a proper old school pub so I loved it but wouldn't suit some people. We sat outside in the beer garden which is on the main street, and heated so suitable in all weather's. I ordered a crab sandwich which was very reasonably... More

Having lived on the outskirts of Tenby for the last 6 years this pub has become my favourite haunt due to the atmosphere, the service and the selection of real ales. I recently ate there for the first time. We sat outside as the weather was warm and we had the dogs with us. We both ordered fish and chips... More
