We visited the Anchor restaurant in Pringle Bay with friends for a meal after hearing that it was under new management. Both, the food and the service were absolutely disgusting and very disappointing. The curry and rice resembled more of a stew than anything else....More

We ordered some seafood and we were dissapointed as the fish was not fresh and the calamari was oily and tasteless. Service slow and unfriendly. We won't return

The Anchor offers the best seafood. Pop in for fish and chips or some prawns. The staff is friendly and they have a great holiday vibe.

So very disappointed . I had to wait almost an hour for breakfast and the place was not that busy. Maybe the service was slow or the chef was inexperienced. Whatever the problem may be please attend to it or close down.

We waited over an hour for the simple meal that we ordered to arrive and it was poorly prepared. I give it a two star for its excellent position.

I went there for breakfast today, was the first table in and ordered breakfast. My wife and I waited patiently for 50 minutes just enjoying the morning. No feedback from the waitresses and eventually asked the question. No real explanation, an apology and "we don't...More

We apologize for your unhappy experience. Our staff is very small as is our kitchen. We have spoken to our waiting staff about their service and behaviour. All the staff we have is new and they are struggling a bit. Please bear that in mind....More

A small charming restaurant in Pringle bay with excellent service and breakfast. Maybe next time we will try lunch as well.
