The Anchor & Hope has been a pioneer of the London gastropub scene for quite some time. Bookings aren’t taken, so an early visit is crucial at peak times. Especially if you’re hungry for the fancy likes of pheasant, chestnut and calvados suet pie. Unlike some gussied-up gastros, the dining area retains the atmosphere of a pub, in a low-lit, art-festooned room.
Feeling the thirst in Waterloo? Unfortunately, this part of town isn’t best known for its pubs. But there are still one or two traditional watering holes that are well worth a visit in the area. From pubs that have survived the centuries to old spots given a new lease of life and a shiny craft beer menu to boot. Get stuck in at Waterloo’s best pubs.
