Spoilt for choice

Went here due to reviews on TA & was not disappointed. Big portions & charming English pub interior. We had a booth which was great. Food was really tasty & great service.

Try the drink specials found on each table, they're usually delicious. The staff is wonderful!! Even the bouncers are awesome.

Fish and Chips here is typical bar food and the beer options are fun to peruse. My friend had a burger which could have used more love and kindness because it was pretty overdone. My salad was not as fresh as I'd liked it to be but again, this is a bar, not a salad bar!

From the moment of stepping down the stairs into the restaurant I was impressed! We sat in a booth surrounded by nautical/British decor. Clam "chowda" was delicious - and this is coming from. Die hard New Englander. Had the Philly Steak sandwich which was remarkable!! Strawberry lemonade was delicious. This is a must stop for anyone visiting Monterey Bay areas,... More

This little place will definitely please. From the English naval decor to the generous portions and quality of the food. So glad we tried it out.

The Crown and Anchor is just downstairs from street level, but it feels like it's a very long way from Monterey. It's a little too perfect to be an authentic British pub (it's so clean it shines) and the staff don't have British accents, but it's a lot of fun and has very good food. My wife had the Beef...

Good pub food. The restaurant wasn't busy for Tuesday lunch. We had good service. The atmosphere was very British, like being below deck on Nelson's frigate. We had the steak and mushroom pie and the chicken pot pie. Both were very good.
