Under the previous ownership we regularly had cod and chips- large and succulent. This evening my cod was small,thin and curled up at the ends but still at the old price. Service at the outside tables was very slow

We ate here on a very busy Saturday night, booked in advance as there were 8 of us. The bar was very crowded with one server so took a while to get a drink. The waiter was great once we were seated, very attentive but not too much. Food took over an hour to arrive, the waiter apologised for this.... More

We had not visited for a while and did not realise it was under new management. We booked on line and received a very pleasant welcome. The service throughout was friendly and efficient. There is now table service (you had to order at the bar previously) and there was a much more varied selection of food than before. We asked... More

I've just eaten dinner here. The place is under new management. The food was very good. I had a burger which was delicious and my friend had cauliflower cheese sausages which she said were wonderful. The chips were exactly as they should be - crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside - delicious. We both had large glasses of... More

I am in total agreement with Annie of Bath's review. From the Sunday when I first went to the Crown and Anchor for Sunday lunch to check it out for a buffet lunch following a funeral I knew I had great confidence in Kelsey's organisational skills. She went out of her way to provide what we wanted for 80 guests... More

We held my uncle's funeral reception for 80 people at The Crown and Anchor yesterday and the service we received from the managers, chef and bar staff was outstanding in every way. From the very first contact to the day itself the process was compassionate and helpful. The food was plentiful, hot and delicious. Everyone was raving about the fish... More

Second visit since new ownership and it's so sad to see the food quality decline. No more lunch menu, so it's quite dear to go for a midweek lunch. Overpriced and unachieveing. On paper the food sounds enticing, but the portions are tiny and the taste is uninspiring. After many great meals over the years we shan't be returning.

Met up at the Crown & Anchor with 5 friends for birthday drinks. The pub wasn't too busy and we were able to sit down in the restaurant part which was really nice. The staff were really friendly and courteous. We decided to have a bite to eat here too and all of us enjoyed our food. It was an... More

We stopped off in Shoreham on a bank holiday Monday for a wander round the town and the beach. After hours of throwing stones into the sea with the kids we looked for some food with two very hungry little ones in tow. At the time we visited, the pub was covered in scaffolding - I'm sure when the exterior... More
