I’d actually never heard of the Anchor & Hope before I went there the other day. Luckily in a way, it wasn’t as packed as it says here in the Squaremeal review and our party of five only had to wait 5 minutes before our table. The atmosphere was definitely very pubby with rickety tables and slightly worn-down interiors. In fact, just the way a proper pub should be in my view.
I understand why people go here for the food. Everything is presented very simply, but tastes great and fresh. We shared the crab on toast and some small fish (whose proper name I can’t remember), which were both very good. I followed up with a sizable portion of rump steak with vegetables and a tasteful potato cake. It’s maybe not the most difficult dish, but it’s always a joy when they manage to make one properly, which they did.
I thought it was a really nice place to hang out at with a few friends. On the negative side, I found the usually very helpful staff, quite slow. For us it didn’t mean that much since we weren’t really in any rush. But then again, you wouldn’t go to a place like this if you were.
