The Anchor & Hope

36 The Cut
London, England, SE1 8LP, United Kingdom
TEL: 44-20-7928-9898

Despite its dark, unassuming façade and equally no-frills interior packed with mismatched furniture, the Anchor & Hope is easily one of the most popular gastropubs in the city. Located in Waterloo, within a three-minute walk of the Old Vic and virtually next door to the Young Vic, the restaurant is as famous for its no reservations policy and long waits as it is for its ever-changing, traditional English menu. With an emphasis on nose-to-tail cooking, the pub serves dishes such as calf’s brains with brown butter on toast and braised venison with red cabbage.

Insider Tip:

Chalkboard daily specials and a number of regular entrées often sell out by 8 p.m., so arrive early if you want to order from the full menu.
