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 no-nonsense mood, with big-hearted dishes on a menu that changes each session. Try pork, duck liver and pistachio terrine, then grilled haddock fillet with spinach and crab beurre blanc. For afters, there's buttermilk pudding with hot salted caramel sauce.
