Whilst other bars try to recreate old-school charm, the same comes naturally to Hope and Anchor, an English-style neighbourhood pub in Paddington located in a building that’s more than a hundred years old.
Did you know that it’s established in a heritage-listed bakery? Sheard’s Bakery, a traditional brick, tin and timber shop built in 1888, houses Hope and Anchor. Black and white photos, collectibles, and old sea-faring are some of the furnishings found inside this nice little pub situated in the heart of Paddington.
Around 15 beers and ciders feature at this pub, including breweries from across Brisbane, Sydney, and South Australia. There’s a decent selection of wines that you can enjoy by the glass or by the bottle as well as spirits such as house cocktails, whiskey, and scotch.
The food menu complements the beer selection, with wings, burgers, and sandwiches, providing ample selections. They are open as early as 7:00 a.m. daily, so you can come early to fulfil your breakfast hunger. And if you want some booze injected into your breakfast or brunch, you can have them from 10:00 a.m.
Live music can be enjoyed every Fridays and Sundays whilst a ‘Joker Draw’ every Thursday gives visitors a chance to win some cash just by purchasing food or a drink from the pub.
Since opening its doors in 2016, Hope and Anchor has become a neighbourhood favourite eatery and bar. People are coming here for the great vibes and amazing burgers, with some complementing it as a good little hiding hole to have a few cold ones with mates.
If you’re visiting Hope & Anchor for a booze or for a tasty treat, just keep in mind that they follow certain protocols to keep everyone safe. Signing in and wearing a mask are mandatory. Follow them on Facebook for updates and promotions.
