Fodor's Expert Review The Anglesea Arms
The front patio and wood-paneled bar of this traditional pub next door to Charles Dickens's former residence is invariably crowded, especially after work, but the restaurant to the rear is comfortable and more peaceful. Dishes range from traditional pub classics like burgers or fish-and-chips to more sophisticated offerings like pan-fried sea bass. Standards, of both the cooking and the selection of beer and wines, are high. Service is friendly, if occasionally erratic.
