We have eaten here a few times but hadn't been for a while so decided to take my sister while she was staying with us. The waitress was an absolute delight, the food was really good and the atmosphere was lively. We all had something different and we were all really happy with our choices. The starters and mains are... More

Several of us went for dinner to the Crab and Anchor, Farnborough. Well what can I say, it was lovely. We all had different meals from the menu and we all thoroughly enjoyed them. Lovely waiter, lovely tasting food, lovely price. We were well pleased and recommend this restaurant.

We arrived and was seated immediately. Service was fantastic. Starters were a good size. Main was huge and very tasty. I had seafood and couldn't finish it. The pudding I wanted wasnt on the menu but the staff made it for me. Highly recommend and will be back
