About
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,

This is our 3rd time here as its our go to place after a walk on Wittering beach with our large dog Heston on his Birthday (25th Feb). Food today as always was amazing as well as the service from all the team. Heston was...made very welcome despite leaving half of the sand from Wittering beach on the floor of the pub. Would recommend a visit but probably better to book in advance. I used their telephone booking system which was very user friendly. Many thanks to All at the C&A.More

I visited with family on a Sunday and made a mistake on booking but they managed to fit us in. Sunday roast was excellent aswell as the service. The pub has a great location by the water.

Although busy and between shifts (3:30 reservation) we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The special ‘hake tail’ was succulent, the haddock and chips were excellent, especially the batter. Well done all round.

Lovely welcoming pub with exceptional service. This was an impromptu visit on the way back from West Wittering. Millie who looked after us was brilliant. Being in between Christmas and New Year there were a few things missing from the menu however Millie handled all...the queries form ourselves and neighbouring tables with grace. The fish and chips were amazing. We would have scored a 5, if the haddock loin burger had not been a bit dry. The presentation and flavour were great and the chips delicious. There are also some really nice touches such as vegan ice cream as standard enabling everyone to enjoy. If you visit try the Affogato for dessert! Amazing. We look forward to returning on our next trip to the coast.More

Quiet Boxing Day evening and good range of fish and burger dishes but not everyone in a family group can choose fish. Chicken Pie was on the online menu but not on the night and no obvious vegetarian choice either… disappointing… and difficult to choose....Service was good and cheery but either the starter fish cocktail has a poached egg as on the menu on the night or not… seems not…. Disappointing, we like coming here the staff are friendly and they welcome the dog too. It’s great to have good food in a pub ethos but tastes vary and it seems the choice is more restricted and of course the prices increase with the times. Please update your menu as you wish but pop it on the website, it’s easily done, and then a little more flexibility in taste will turn it back into the friendly and welcoming place with great food and atmosphere and back to 5*.More

We go to the Crown and Anchor fairly regularly and this last visit was probably one of the worst experiences we have had there. It was Christmas Eve so you expect it to be busy, even so an hour to get starters was quite a...wait. The sourdough toast was cold so I can only assume it was put in the toaster when we arrived and had sat on the side for an hour. The poorest part of our experience was the service. No updates on our meals- the odd sorry to keep you waiting/ I’ll just check how much longer would have been nice. We weren’t asked if we wanted another drink, the wrong wine was brought out, we weren’t asked if our meals were ok… just nothing. What a shame. Lesson learnt, we won’t go in a busy period again.More
