Only a short walk down the road from Tucking Mill’s secluded cottages, you’ll find exceptional food and drink at the Hope and Anchor. Known to be one of the best pubs in the area, this welcoming establishment in Midford happily caters for families and serves delicious dishes seven days a week.
The pub sits alongside the old railway path, with the car park sitting across the old line where the station once stood. Today the line has been transformed into a beautiful cross-country cycle path that leads into Bath and is just one of a few quaint trails found in the area. Weather dependent you can choose to sit close within the cosy interior, or savour a cold one in the private garden out back.
Choose from a smorgasbord of delicious dishes from soups and salads to fresh fish, steak or venison, with many of the starters also available as mains for those with a smaller appetite. While there are a range of gourmet options, you may prefer the hearty homemade staples such as lasagne or sausage and mash at a slightly lower price, but no compromise on flavour. There is also a great selection for the kids to enjoy, with generous portion sizes offering a balanced meal that’s great value for money.
Overall The Hope & Anchor is great all round and a wonderful foodie pub set in idyllic surroundings. Whether you’re after a snug tavern in the winter or a sun-trap in the summer months, you’re sure to be pleased with both the food and friendly environment. The Hope and Anchor is open every day of the week, however due to its all-round appeal, booking is advisable, especially at weekends.
