The Crown & Anchor



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. We are also extremely proud to have been named Eastbourne Herald Pub of the Year 2016.

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 Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We are also Dog friendly, so please feel free to bring your dogs along with you when you visit. They may even become #Dogoftheday!
