The Hope & Anchor is quite possibly the best little local in Brisbane. Housed in a Heritage listed cottage that served as a bakery in Paddington in the late 1800’s the venue, gives a nod to the British settlers that built the area which is reflected in the Pub style service and food and drink offerings.

Hope and Anchor is bursting with characters and brings about a welcoming rustic charm to Paddington, Brisbane’s bar scene. Fitted with exposed brick walls, vintage timber fittings and ever so quirky wall ornaments that resemble that of grandpa’s hunting room.

This is a place to have fun, and the food is no exception, with its laid-back non-pretentious menu. The ragu on toast is a hearty signature favourite, and goes perfectly with a glass of whisky in front of the roaring fireplace in the cooler months.
