Well-known gastro-pub with big-hearted cooking

Rock up at the bar of this rollicking Waterloo gastro pub and try your luck for a table in the dining area (you can't book to eat, except for Sunday lunch). Every bit a proper no-frills boozer, the Anchor & Hope comes decked out in oxblood walls with well-worn wooden tables and mismatched hard chairs, while the scrum at the bar ups the decibels. The food fits the gritty mood, with big-hearted dishes on a menu that changes each session. Try warm snail and bacon salad, or a fish stew of halibut, gurnard, mussels and chickpeas. Pear and almond tart with clotted cream stays on theme.
