Description: Our passion for local produce at the Crown and Anchor is at the heart of everything that we do. In order to bring you the freshest possible seafood, we write a daily menu dictated by what our local boats have landed that morning. Whether it be Dover Sole, landed in Bracklesham Bay by the Crew of the Kraken, or fresh lobster picked by the Crew of the Toby Rock...we can guarantee that almost all of our fish hasn’t traveled far from the sea to your plate. Our drinks range centres around the real ales that we are proud to call Young’s own; we also have a range of seasonal guests and a wine list that encompasses all tastes as far as grapes, origin and style goes. For the drivers and health conscious, we’re frequently expanding our soft drink range and there’s always teas and coffees on offer too.

We sat outside in the sunshine looking at the water. Very friendly service. Drinks came quickly. The crab salad was delicious. The truffle and cheese fries not to be missed.

Such a great pub at Del Quay. Situated in such a lovely place, the food was lovely, but the service is what was fantastic. The front of house was run by a guy called Anar, he couldn’t have been more helpful. All the staff were very friendly. Parking area gets extremely busy.

Booked in advance and seated outside in beautiful surroundings. The ordering via the app is shockingly poor. However, sympathetic to current restrictions so struggled on with it. Order placed and mains appeared before starters. Waitress curtly informed us that all food served outside comes in one go. Might have been better to make this clear from the outset. The food was really very good indeed. Worth the battle to order it! The setting of this beautiful pub and the food quality saved the day. However, I would definitely like to visit again but until the ordering app is vastly improved or removed altogether, I would be reluctant to do so.

Thank you for your recent visit and feedback.
I am sorry that you had issues with the app, i am glad to hear the team were about to help you.
We do also provide table service currently due to covid restrictions in our garden. So you are more than happy to use that if that would be easier for you in future visits.
I am glad that you enjoyed the food and the lovely setting.
Kind Regards

We've been plenty of times, so this trip has the hallmark of Covid 19 over it, but even so, we were left really disappointed last week when the menu online bore no relation to what was available when we turned up. When we booked online we had no idea that eating outside meant we had the limited Crab & Burger Shack menu. The menu was then whittled down to burger of plant burger for kids and the same for adults plus a hake burger. The kids wanted fish and chips so they had to share the hake burger. They love fish, but this hake burger was so salty it was inedible for the kids. I'm guessing that as part of a bigger chain it's hard to change the online menu but even in these trying times, how difficult is it to keep four choices on the menu for kids as per your website? We went to another favourite pub the next night had 4 meals not 3 and paid £20 less and the kids cleared their sausages and fish & chips.

Thank you for your recent visit and feedback.

I apologies that the menu was not as extensive as it may have been pre covid this was due to beach traffic holding up our deliveries, supplier issues and the quantities we were requiring due to half term.

Unfortunately we have never been able to provide fish and chips outside due to logistics and kitchen space as we are a listed building. We have taken your feedback on board and added some plaice goujons to the children's menu outside.

We do change our menus on line as much as possible but these are just Sample Menus as it does depend on what produce we get from our suppliers. We should be suitably re-fished in time for your next visit.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Kind regards, Crown and Anchor Team
