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.
