A good solid West End pub which suffers a bit from the huge popularity of the area but is ok at quiet times. The main room is downstairs, with a dining room upstairs, all in good traditional style. Draught ales were Doom Bar, Atlantic, Landlord, Twickenham Grandstand and something unreadable from London Brewing.

Located in the same street as Neal’s Yard Dairy, this was a first in here the other night.
The pub dates back to at least the mid-19th century but is early Edwardian, being rebuilt in 1904. The first thing you notice are the rare Meux’s and Reid’s ceramic cartouches to the ground floor. Inside, the bar’s to the rear and it’s a bit wooden but how original I don’t know, but I don’t think it dates back to 1904. Furniture is mixed, the crowd young and the music a little loud.
Ales: the awful Sharp’s Doom Bar and Atlantic, Fuller’s London Pride, Twickenham’s Naked Ladies, Sambrook’s Wandle and Southwark Brewing Co’s London Pale Ale at a very agreeable £2.30 a half and very good it was too.
As far as CG goes, this is one of the better pubs and I’d have no real reservations about making a return visit.

The Crown and Anchor was quieter than its peers late on Saturday afternoon, which was good as I was able to find somewhere comfortable to stand. Available from the bar on the rear wall were three mainstream ales alongside a standard keg range and San Miguel. The weather was clement so I was going to join the crowd who had gathered on the path out the front, but the friendly barmaid informed me that this would mean drinking out of a plastic vessel - No thanks.
As pubs go I found this one to be fairly unremarkable so I wouldn’t make a special trip to visit again.
