“Pub lunch on a sunny Sunday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

As always...friendly yummy and fun...eating outside watching the yachts..and the seagulls...you are given a water pistol to keep the sea gulls at bay if you sit outside!! A great place for lunch.

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Our family of four went to The Anchor while visiting Nelson. We were recommended three or four places to go and we were so glad we chose The Anchor. We were very impressed with our meal. I had the surf and turf and it was the best I have ever tasted. My husband and son loved their steak meal also. This was our best meal out of everywhere we ate while in Nelson. The location was excellent overlooking the marina. Would be a great spot to have a meal in summer as they have outdoor tables. I will definitely go back for a meal next time we go to Nelson.

“Meal o.k service good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Dined in June 2013. Service was good. Asked waiter regarding wine selection and were given tasters which is good but were charged at the end of the meal for a glass of wine we didn`t purchase, maybe mistake or to pay for the taster?
Meal was o.k, nice seafood. Seafood "type" basket was good but mussels and scallops very small.
Chicken risotto was a little bland. Were given some scallops free at the end of the meal due to a cancelled order which was nice.
