Have been to the Crab & Anchor on a few occasions now, most recently for my birthday meal. The menu is very varied and the food is great with healthy portions. The staff are all very warm and friendly. Would highly recommend, but book as it does get very busy.

Booked on the day with my partner, as it was close to the Premier Inn we were staying at. Service was superb, the atmosphere was warm, friendly, and inclusive. Food was exquisite, full of flavour, and a pleasant surprise to find, especially out of the way in Farnborough. It seemed as if the chefs could cook anything, with main meals... More

My wife and i have been dining here since our move to Farnborough in 2013, at first we raved about this place as the food quality and service was second to none. However that changed on our visit on around June 2016 when the food we were served was terrible and not what we had expected from them. We complained... More

Having been here on many occasions I have just 1 bit of advice. Book early so you get in! Grub is awesome. Staff are awesome. Portions are big.

We went to the Crab and Anchor for Christmas Eve lunch, and it was absolutely delicious!! The staff were so attentive, and the food was so tasty. Very reasonably priced for the amount of food you got, we certainly didn't leave hungry! We go to the Crab regularly but have never had their Xmas dinner, we will definitely go again.

Visited the Crab and Anchor with a small group of friends for a Christmas dinner As usual the pub was very busy so essential we booked. Good attention from staff on arrival and a quick drink whilst the table was prepared Food was good although the vegetables were a little too al dente for everyone's choice but still very tasty...

This was the first time we had visited the pub in some years. We had to book for an early evening meal. On arrival we were met and shown to our table with drinks arriving quickly. The menu is very large with lots of choice. On a positive note the service was quick and the staff helpful and polite. The... More

We were visiting family in Fleet and booked the Crab & Anchor as it was very close to our hotel. After looking at the on-line menu we expected a great dining experience. There was nothing really wrong with the food we ordered it was hot and prompt but we were just really disappointed with the wow factor. The service, however,... More

Food was good, but just a few suggestions to the chef How about a healthy veggie option?? One that is not so calorific?? My partner asked for home cooked chips-not frozen ones. Apart from that the food was all good
