The Anchor & Hope, London

The Place: The Anchor & Hope, near Waterloo Station, is an early and much-loved example of the London gastropub.

The Menu: Straightforward English cooking, gutsy and without pretension. Rabbit is braised with tomato and anchovy. Briny-sweet potted shrimps on crusty toast. The only thing wrong with the place is that they sometimes run out of dishes quickly and cross them off the daily menu, so go early to avoid heartache.
