Anchor & Hope shortlisted again

The Anchor & Hope in The Cut has been shortlisted for the Evening Standard Pub of the Year Award.

The pub, on the corner of Hatfields near Southwark Station, was known as Bar Citrus until last year when it returned to its original name. The Anchor & Hope was a Charles Wells pub and today its beers are still on tap.

The Evening Standard's Edward Sullivan, who describes the pub as "a cut above its neighbouring restaurants", writes: "The Anchor & Hope has returned to traditional pub roots by providing an almost workaday atmosphere but with a seriously good food and ale offering.

There are ten contenders including St Margaret's at Twickenham which was also relaunched last year.

The Anchor & Hope has also been shortlisted in two categories in the Tio Pepe Carlton London Restaurant Awards.
