The Crown & Anchor, Chichester, is an award-winning waterside pub on the edge of Chichester Harbour. This 16th Century public house was once the main landing station for trade in and out of the City of Chichester but is now a thriving pub and restaurant serving modern British cuisine with a focus on fresh landed and prepared seafood and fish. In the height of summer, the large waterside terrace is the place to be to soak in the sunshine and peaceful ebb and flow of harbour life. In winter, the crackling fires and hearty roasts are the main attraction.
What better place to hold your event or function, than in a beautiful, award winning, characterful pub and restaurant, perched on the lapping waters of Chichester Harbour? Full or olde-worlde charm, with nooks and crannies all over our venue, we can host intimate private dinner parties and family celebrations, or screen off larger areas for meetings and work related bookings, or indeed talk to us about whole-venue hire for much larger events and functions.

We can advise on all aspects including; the best relevant space, the range of delicious menu options and even have links with local musicians, DJ’s and entertainers to make your event a memorable one.
Just wanted to say thank you for the care and attention you showed to us for my husbands 70th birthday meal. He said he had such a special time, especially as we had the beautiful view across the water.
Food and drink were delicious and you were very welcoming to the whole party including the dogs!
So very pleased to say our party nothing but praise for the food and the service we received here on Sunday. Everything was outstanding, even though they were busy to bursting point. This is when most places start falling down and think it is an acceptable excuse.Not this place, a well run team, from the kitchen to front of house. Congratulations guys, we’ll be back soon.
Booked a table for our party, on a recommendation as we were staying locally, and WOW! The minute we walked in the door and were greeted by someone who knew my christian name from my surname told me all I needed to know.
It was simply amazing, everything was just perfect, the location, the food, the service, even the name board (If you book you’ll understand), we had a sharing starter and the crab pate, I mean talk about perfection on a plate, followed by a couple of fish dishes I live by the sea myself and know good fish, and it was as good as it gets. We then spent the next hour watching the sun set, we will be back most definitely. With great thanks to all the staff you made the evening just as much as the chefs, great work from all’
Blessed to have this as one of our locals. Always great friendly service, fantastic views and amazing food! Booking essential, always busy. Fabulous seafood, lovely fresh fish! My fav, but shhhh don’t tell everyone!
Chris welcomed and took care of us SO beautifully. A charming young man with amazing customer engagement skills, who knew what we needed before we did!
if you like fish, this is your place, and we had a variety of seaweed to go with it too
The lemon posset to finish was superb
