Use the campsite regularly and am surprised by some of the comments - (and no, I am not the pub proprietor) Yes the landlady can be a little….. larger than life but she is a no nonsense type of Scot who no doubt says what she thinks.
I have found her very welcoming and friendly, no problem taking the dog in, beer and food available to take away etc etc.
i think the food is exceptional for a pub. If you want Harvester prices go to Harvester. I sat in here a couple of months ago and watched a proper busy kitchen with a proper chef cooking proper food. You get what you pay for. It's not cheap but that's because it's cooked fresh, rather than brought in pre-packed from Brake Brothers and cooked by some teenager who knows nothing about cooking and just heats things up.
Incidentally there were quite a few locals drinking in there when I was last in, having walked from nearby Yapton where there is another good pub with a great music quiz on a Sunday night.
I'm not in the habit of leaving reviews on this site but thought I would try to balance it out a bit by telling people about my experiences.
Yes beware of opening times, not open Sunday nights, but this is one of my favourite spots in Sussex.

This was the third closed pub of the day for us. It doesn't look like it has closed for good. But very strange to see it closed on a Sunday evening. Although maybe its location on a caravan site has something to do with this. 0/10 for no beer in the evening.

I know who wrote the last comment and can only say that I am surprised that even they have been shown the door,
A great couple and always most helpful,a pleasure to spend time with.
This pub is a waste of time as if you dont fit in with the landlady you are not welcome.
A truly sorry excuse for what was once a great traditional pub.

A lot of comments have been written about this pub,some are fact,a lot are fiction so I have decided to put a genuine report in.
I have used this pub,the campsite and the marina for 26 years,I would not like to guess how much money I have spent here,
I have also provided the new years entertainment for 3 years without charge or recieving any kind of renumeration for it,I have repaired the tractor when it broke down free of charge.
All was well until the latest landlady who I can only describe as a hag arrived!
Without any warning I have been told to move my caravan off the site,I am not allowed in the pub,and they no longer need my custom!!!!!!!
I will say that at no point have I ever caused a problem in the establishment,Its just that I was the last of the locals!!!
Use this place if you wish but as far as I am concerned they can shove it where the sun dont shine!!!!

I have been drinking in the Ship and Anchor for just on 23 years but I was one of the locals told to drink somewere else as was the rest of the locals.The land lady is to pubs what Wayne Sleep is to rugby league.
We sent an unknown customer to check it out on a Saturday night and 2 people apart from him, I think this says it all.
We all drink in the Maypole now just round the corner nice and busy with a good pint and a landlord who wants you there.
Sorry Ship and Anchor you are the best pub in the south with the worst landlady
