The Crown & Anchor Hotel, is a warming, welcoming and winning environment.

It's not pretentious, like some of the competing bars in the neighbourhood.

A stand out for me, is the lovely barmaid, Brynna. Brynna has an attitude, personality and manner, that is professional, approachable and polite.

Brynna is a winner. I'll definitely return to The Crown & Anchor Hotel soon.

Great pub to catch up with friends and have a drink. Live music gave us some coasters and permanent markers to draw on while listening to great tunes. Excellent staff, chill vibe in the front bar and reasonable drink prices,
Went to cranker comedy for up n coming and established comedians, was great for a laugh on a Tuesday night, donation at the door.

It attracts a certain type of punk/metal crowd. If you are that sort of person, you would probably give it 5 stars. They are certainly a very strong supporter of new bands and regularly have 20 bands playing each week.

Happy birthday Cranchor. 170 years old! Beer, chat, music, bands and good vibes.

The Crown and Anchor, or 'The Cranker', is a great spot to unwind and enjoy some nostalgia. The friendly bar staff are quick to serve up your favorite drinks, with Coopers being a popular choice.

The band room is a big hit. Local bands play most nights, creating a fun and lively atmosphere. There are also stand-up comedy shows from time to time.

Don't forget to play a game of pool while you're there, it's a part of the whole 'Cranker' experience.

In short, The Crown and Anchor is a classic pub where you can enjoy good beer, great music, and meet some interesting locals. It's a must-visit if you're in Adelaide.

Best pub, gigs pretty much every night, some wicked bands play there. Excellent beers on tap, well priced, with happy hour on Wednesday. Good selection of pinball machines. Best pub pool tables you can find, and even better there is the king of the table rules. E.g. Challenge tables, put your dollar up, when it's your turn, play the winner.

Also best staff going around ???

Classic Aussie pub and an Adelaide cultural institution. Pool tables, live music, chilled staff who'll have a chat, great prices, dunno if I've even tried the food but I'm sure it's classic pub fare.
I try to get there for the last Sunday of the month when big Teddy spins vinyl from 11pm to late in the front bar, always some juicy funk, soul, surf rock, always a delight!

A great proper pub. Excellent and supportive live music venue, staff are always great, good selection of booze. The only downside is the toilets stink, no need.
That aside, it's a great venue.

Classic Adelaide pub and one of the three essentials to visit alongside the Austral and Exeter (both nearby).
A couple of pool tables and one of Adelaide best band rooms for smaller gigs.
Alternative crowd.

This is a ridgy didge no frills old Aussie pub..pretty much unchanged over time. If that's your taste you'll love it . If not probably go somewhere else.

Had an awesome time catching madura green for the first time with an awesome line up of bearclaw club and sunsick daisy!

Had a pretty grouchy glassy take my drink away before I was finished.

Most staff were overall friendly and fairly hospitable with quick and efficient service

Would recommended to anyone wanting a cold beer and local tunes

We had Dinner for 6 upstairs in this wonderful small room full of character. The staff were cool, attentive and friendly. NICE!!!! Last but not least, the food...WOW!! The food was earthy, healthy and Yummy. Thankyou Crown and Anchor??

Went here on a Friday night, quite busy and great vibes, the bartenders are very nice and friendly and I enjoyed my drinks. Drinks are a reasonable price and as I mentioned before the vibes were really awesome. Great job management. (I know you've made the most of what you could for seating but a few more seats perhaps would be nice.) Thank you! ?
