This place does have an extensive menu. I think that may actually detract from the quality of some of the dishes though. On a Friday and Saturday night we have seen a number of people being turned away as it was so busy but I'm still not sure why. It feels a bit cramped and old fashioned. The large wine... More

Wonderful food, very friendly staff and great value for money - what more can you ask? This lovely restaurant is hidden away but is well worth seeking out, you will be glad you did.

This place is tucked away behind Morrisons you could blink and miss it! But let me tell you it's a little gem. We came here for a birthday meal and it was a charming gastro pub and lovely. I had the Moules Frites and they were heavenly. Great value, lovely service, will be going back!

Went here on a Friday night. Can't fault the food we had or the welcome we got. However the waitress staff were just 'going through the motions' with no real feeling. The restaurant was so noisy we couldn't hear ourselves talk and we were facing each other. Wasn't even packed out either but still nosey !!

Very impressed! Excellent choice of menu, excellent drink choice including scrummy cocktails. The portions are very generous! Good I'd cooked very well and was all very delicious. The service was great, not in your face but just enough attention. Would certainly go back !

I have been back to the Crab & Anchor twice recently. Once for lunch on a Saturday with a friend and then again for dinner with my husband and son. On each occasion we all had excellent meals in a lovely atmosphere with helpful, polite staff. For lunch, my friend and i didn't fancy baguettes and only wanted a light... More

Abit tucked out of the way behind Morrison's but once inside it is bright and airy. We have visited a few times this year, food is good, portion sizes generous (maybe a little too much for me), the menu is massive so bags of choice which works really well for big family get togethers, and they are fantastic with the...

Wow! I cannot recommend this place enough!! As a family of five - all with very different eating habits and tastes .... we all left feeling the same - full, happy and very pleasantly surprised. (One vegan , 2 pescatarians, 2 normal diet!) For starters we ordered a mix of crab cakes, garlic and sweet chilli prawns, loaded potatoes skins... More
