A friend and I visited this establishment recently to have a number of drinks and to watch the boxing. No one else, as far as I could tell, was showing it so we chose the Crown & Anchor! We were served with some alacrity, bearing in mind on the night in question was busy, and the service was impeccable! I... More

Basically the two bar staff were scared of a sizeable house spider that was on the floor behind the bar, I offered to pick it up 3 times and take it outside and let it free...rather than let me do this they went and...

Rude, unkind and unfriendly staff clearly with a chip on the shoulder. Won't ever attempt to go here again and won't recommend it. No one wanted to give us a table and it was made very clear that we were not welcome at this venue. No problem we took our money elsewhere. I did contact the pub to complain to... More

The bottom end of the city has a choice of eating places, so it's all a tad competitive. We chose this one partly based on price and menu, but mainly the garden. It was a very hot day. We were greeted by the most delightful barmaid who called us "hon" with such affection. She is a real ambassador for the... More
