Location and contact

The Crown & Anchor has become one of Eastbourne’s most exciting, up and coming pubs. Beautifully refurbished to an extremely high standard, The Crown & Anchor has something for everyone and to many it feels like a home from home. The pub offers you home-cooked meals every day thanks to our talented team in the kitchen and the friendly bar staff are on hand with a large selection of wines, spirits, lagers and ales. The entertainment comes thick and fast with live music every Friday and Saturday.
