Navy inspired Tapas Bar & Restaurant “The Swallowed Anchor” is right in the heart of Wollongong’s CBD. It is the perfect place for a mid-week date or group booking for a night out.
We offer a mixture of traditional and modern tapas with produce sourced from quality, local suppliers. Enjoy a range international and Australian vino with some of the best tapped craft beer around. Owned by a couple of young Navy Veterans, with 24 years service between us, we’ve tried to incorporate a little bit of our Navy life into the bar for you to experience. In Navy slang, to ‘swallow the anchor’ means to retire from the sea and settle down ashore. Check out our latest Tapas menu
