Hope and Anchor  

This pub is close to the water on the edge of town opposite Constitution Hill. It doesn't look much from the outside with plain big windows and half curtains, but don't be fooled as the inside is all traditional wooden floors chairs and tables. Some pews and a secluded area for two in a corner near the beer cellar on the way to the toilets. The 'L' shaped bar (round to right on entrance) has old hops around it and the bar back is ancient 1950's. They usually have five beers on but only three when visited: Otter Bitter, Butts Barbus Barbus, and Feilinfoel Double Dragon. Food is served all day and is rather sumptuous with Falafel, chicken and many sandwiches. The ploughman's is famous round these parts and you have a choice of over 15 different cheeses, spicy chicken and pate to have with it. It comes not on a plate, but a carving plate! It comes in at just ?5.75. There are also a good few choices for veggies. That said it's not a family pub. The secluded raised beer garden (with lots of steps) out back is good for the summer. Disabled access is possible, though the toilets are small and narrow. Look out for the pub cat. No accommodation here.
