Anchor Restaurant, Bar and Lounge
Formerly Freeport Seafood Restaurant
$$, Seafood, Contemporary
This is a relatively new restaurant but has already started carving out a name for itself. If you are a repeat visitor at the Royal Naval Dockyard in west end, then you would know that this was the location of erstwhile Freeport Seafood Restaurant which has been taken over in May 2016 jointly by two couples and is now The Anchor Restaurant, Bar and Lounge.
The restaurant is located few yards inside the gates of Royal Naval Dockyard in Sandy's parish. You won't miss the pastel pink cottage style building with white triangular limestone roof.
