Surprised to see some of the negative comments about the Blue Anchor here. As locals we regularly use the pub and find that it has the best standard of food in Crowborough. The burgers are first rate, the belly of pork is restaurant quality and the fish and chips superb. Rude staff is inexcusable in any pub and to be honest we did think that when the new tennants arrived that they could be a bit more friendly. However I think the service now is much better and we're warmly greeted whenever we go. There's more of a family feel to the pub now - I feel comfortable bringing my kids in for a weekend lunch and they do now have a kids menu , the quality of which is the best we've seen anywhere (just taste the macaroni cheese!). Good choice of beers and I think the pub deserves to be a success as the food and service is consistently very good.

Awfull customers service and food! Firstly when making our booking for 5 we were told it had to be at 12.15 as they already had a large booking coming in at 12.30, it then turned out we were the only people in the restaurant for the length of our visit. (This tells a story on it's own considering it was Sunday lunch time).
We all had roasts and were so dissapointed, we were given shredded slices of wafer thin fatty beef, buried under a pile of raw veg. The reason it was hidden was probably to disguise the fact their was barely enough to feed my 2 year old, We commented to the manager/owner about the quality & quantity of the meat, but we were greated by a dirty look and asked "what did we expect" and that was it, he made no appology and was just plain rude. Truely poor by anyones standards

I went to the Blue Anchor in Crowborough to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday last weekend. As usual the food was excellent and the service was spot on. We had two starters, two main courses, an excellent bottle of wine and a couple of 'liveners' - all for 60 plus tip. We were due to go to Thackeray's in Tunbridge Wells that evening but decided that based on past experience, the food at the Blue Anchor was every bit as good, very reasonably priced and just along the road from our house. We weren't disappointed by our decision. I can firmly recommend the Spitfire Rarebit, the Pork Belly and the Pinot Gris (18) to wash it all down. We have lived close to the Blue Anchor for over 12 years and whilst we have never been 'pubby' people before, the food and welcome that we get from Martyn, Damian and Caroline - even when just popping in for a pint and some pork scratchings have definitely converted us and keep us coming back for more!

We met at the pub today with my sister and her other half and it was the first time for the four of us. The service was superb and the food all exellent. The staff were all great and knew their job. I had a BBQ Platter off the specials board and it was fantastic and very tasty. My better half had the belly pork with all the veg and she said how good it was. I managed two pints of the Bishops Finger which was also in good nick. A very enjoyable visit and we will be going again. Keep up the good work
