We were pleased to find this British style pub able to accommodate my gluten-free diet and my husband's vegetarianism. My chicken curry with vegetables was delicious, and my husband also liked his veggie quesadillas.

The Crown and Anchor doesn't look like much from the street. Because most of the fun is below level. Inside, it looks and sounds like an authentic English pub. Just get there early on the weekends because it fills up.

A great setting and a traditionally decorated British themed pub. Food is excellent and good value although the menu is riddled with historical inaccuracies.
