Welcome to the Crown and Anchor

Built at the end of the 16th Century, the Crown & Anchor has one of the most unrivaled positions on Chichester Harbour. Our location offers stunning views from Dell Quay Marina, from both our indoor restaurant and large waterside terrace.


We offer two options for dining; our main restaurant inside and our Crab & Burger Shack outside, which offers more informal dining when the weather is fine. We serve a wide selection of real ales, lager, spirits, cocktails, soft drinks and an excellent selection of wines, expertly selected to complement our menu.

Award Winning

Well worth going out of your way to eat here! I came here with my girlfriend. It’s a bit out of the way but it is 110% worth visiting! In a beautiful location the pub looks great, and that’s before you’ve got inside. If you can get a seat in the window then do so. The view over the estuary is perfect. On top of that, the food is excellent. I had a cured salmon to start which was exceptional. The mussels were also great. The service was also brilliant. The place was clearly very busy but the staff were polite, attentive and helpful. We will definitely be back!

Five Stars – Every day for a week! This is a popular haunt and very busy at weekends. Why? The beer is well kept. The food is outstanding. The service is exceptional. Dogs are welcome everywhere!
