We stopped in Pringle Bay on our way home. We had a cup of coffee at this little restaurant. Well worth the stop we will be returning to the anchor for the Sunday roast.

We visited the Anchor restaurant in Pringle Bay with friends for a meal after hearing that it was under new management. Both, the food and the service were absolutely disgusting and very disappointing. The curry and rice resembled more of a stew than anything else....More

We ordered some seafood and we were dissapointed as the fish was not fresh and the calamari was oily and tasteless. Service slow and unfriendly. We won't return

The Anchor offers the best seafood. Pop in for fish and chips or some prawns. The staff is friendly and they have a great holiday vibe.

We only had coffee here but I found the waitress unsmiling and unfriendly. Perhaps she was having a bad day. Not my problem. She practically threw the menu down and immediately asked us what wanted to drink. There was no indication on what was available...More

So very disappointed . I had to wait almost an hour for breakfast and the place was not that busy. Maybe the service was slow or the chef was inexperienced. Whatever the problem may be please attend to it or close down.

We waited over an hour for the simple meal that we ordered to arrive and it was poorly prepared. I give it a two star for its excellent position.

We apologize for your unhappy experience. Our staff is very small as is our kitchen. We have spoken to our waiting staff about their service and behaviour. All the staff we have is new and they are struggling a bit. Please bear that in mind....More
