Family Dinner

Crab and Anchor was a last minute decision, but a very good one. The staff were great, very accommodating for a full restaurant when we arrived. The restaurant is very popular. Food I would rate a high 3, a bit bland, the service would rate a 5, averaging a 4. Well worth a visit.

Well I have to say, the food and service was very good. I chose the lighter dish of a jacket potato with beans and cheese. As this was a lunchtime treat, i really didn't want a heavy meal and sleep at my desk. The rest of the party had different dishes, and we all said how good the food was.... More

My husband and I favourite restaurant. Been here on many occasions never had a bad meal. Always busy considering the location it has to be mainly word of mouth . In my opinion the best in the area .

So this place has lots on the menu from around the world, but unfortunately it's just not authentic. I tried a few things here and most of it tastes microwaved and if it's been pre-cooked and possibly frozen. It's not cheap - especially for where it's located so I can't understand how they can justify charging that for what is... More

Have been here a few times now. The food is always cooked to perfection and the staff are always friendly. The price is a little high though.

First time visit, a lovely surprise from my Husband for my birthday We arrived earlier than our booking & expected to be waiting for our time slot, however we were pleasantly surprised to be offered to a table of our choosing immediately. An extensive menu initially a little overwhelming but having spoken to the friendly knowledgeable young man waiting our... More

3 of us ate here simply based on location and decent trip advisor reviews. Oh dear…..A huge menu, never a good sign. Lots of Thai dishes on the menu so my husband presumed they would know what they are doing and ordered a chicken ginger Thai dish, he said that it was the worst interpretation of Thai food he had...

My husband and I took my family, 12 adults and 8 children for lunch on Sunday to celebrate my birthday. We had a fantastic time, the food was wonderful, great value, great service. This was not our first visit and we have never had a bad meal.
