Please be aware that we will be closed every Monday until 6pm

and there will be no food service.


We are a proudly independent, spacious and dog-friendly pub serving the best in craft beers, ales, fine wines and homemade, locally sourced food – either inside or outside in our large secluded garden.

We are conveniently located near the Bristol city centre in Clifton, close to the Harbourside. Whether you are after quick pint on the trot, a long Sunday lunch or an evening out with friends, we can cater for your every need.

The Hope & Anchor is run in partnership with its sister pub, the gorgeous Volunteer Tavern in St. Jude’s near Cabot Circus by Peter Gibbs and his team. Between the two pubs, a host of events are regularly run – find out more here.  Events are either indoors (up to 60 people) or in our large, secluded garden. We were delighted to find out recently that our beer garden has been included in the Top Ten list of great beer gardens.

Parties can be booked in advance and food bookings are always advised for Sunday lunch to avoid disappointment!  In partnership with VoltaCatering and VoltaDistribution, the team also runs field and venue events including weddings, festivals and outdoor parties.

We look forward to serving you!
