Went for tea on a Sunday with friends, quick service, good choice of food and wine. Menu had plenty of options. Food was good quality. Could have been a bit more flavorsome but still really nice. Would go back again. Lovely outdoor area.

This place is now called Anchor Restaurant but continues to offer the same wide choice of food, big meals and pretty good service to a group. Nice views from many indoor tables to the Marina and appropriate decor to fit a marine theme. Outdoor seating by the water. Plenty of room even if there are a lot of people there... More

A bit tricky to find, but worth the perseverance. Excellent seafood by the harbour. Great setting and really good food.

We had looked at this place earlier in the day and decided that the walk from our accommodation would be worth it. The place was relatively empty so service was prompt. What's more it was extremely friendly - really welcoming. The food was not top notch but pretty good and definitely value for money. What really surprised us, though, was... More

Was here for lunch. Our table overlooked the Marina and it was a lovely day so very relaxing view. Service was quick and friendly. Food was fresh, tasty and arrived quickly. There were many great choices, lots of them seafood based but something for everyone. Enough tasty sounding dishes to tempt you back for more visits. I ate the whitebait,... More

The Anchor is sited next to the yacht harbour in Nelson. Most of the tables have a view of the water, which creates a relaxing atmosphere whilst waiting for the meal to arrive. The menu is varied with a selection of mains, many of them fish. The service was attentive and quick. Our drinks arrived promptly, and there was not... More

It had been quite some time since we were last at the Anchor Inn, and possibly the first time I had been here for lunch rather than dinner. Arriving at noon, we were the first this lunchtime, but fairly soon after the place was packed, including a very large group. As we had a table by the window in its... More

When some restaurants in the heart of Nelson are doing multiple sittings at your restaurant is almost devoid of customers at 9pm you have to ask yourself why? Place is fine, scenic overlooking marina - but you don't eat views. Far too many blind spots in restaurant which means staff can not see customers. Food is OK, nothing startling and... More
