It's all bangers, mash and pints at this friendly British pub in Paddington
Hope and Anchor is a friendly little English-style pub serving classic British meals and tap beer by the pint. The building was originally a 19th century bakery and the old fireplaces and booths go a long way to recreating that English seaside aesthetic.
It wouldn't be a real British pub if fish and chips wasn't on the menu, but Hope and Anchor honestly has some far more interesting eats on offer. If you just need a snack to tide you over the hot smoked trout croquettes or diamond shell clams with chorizo will set you right. Hungrier patrons can opt for braised beef cheeks or slow-roasted duck leg, or stuffed portabello mushrooms with pumpkin and feta.
On the beer front Young Henrys and Guinness are the two regulars on tap with other beers on rotation and plenty of craft beers available by the bottle. For cheap eats, dine in Monday for a Brick Lane-style curry, Tuesday for a schnitty and Wednesday for a traditional bangers and mash.
The best part of Hope and Anchor though? Just like in England, dogs are warmly welcomed.
