When is an English-style pub more than just an English-style pub? When it also throws nautical theming into the mix, too. That's what's on offer at The Hope & Anchor, the fresh addition that Paddington has been calling out for.
Indeed, the roadway that morphs from Caxton Street to Given Terrace to Latrobe Terrace boasts many things — including Lefty's Old Time Music Hall and Ginger's from Hope & Anchor owner Jamie Webb — but it doesn't have anywhere quite like this. Taking over the quaint, heritage-listed space that was originally a bakery and has housed The Lark and Shingle Inn in recent years, the two-level H&A combines historic charm with a laid-back atmosphere to become everyone's new favourite watering hole.
Thankfully, there's more to the pub than a great look and feel, even if it does ooze both in spades. Drinks-wise, prepare to imbibe craft, microbrewery and even ginger beer by the bottle or on tap, or peruse the hefty wine, cocktail and spirits lists. And if you're hankering for a bar snack (and who isn't?), then opting for beef jerky and chips or the old favourite that is the chip butty is a must, with everything from fish fingers, peppercorn steak, and half a chicken with sausage gravy and mash available for those with bigger appetites.
