Beers ahoy! Hope and Anchor arrives in Paddington

Being part of the European Union is not something that the United Kingdom does well. What it does do well though, is good old-fashioned pubs and cosy bars. You're often greeted by the warmth and familiarity of yesteryear, a fireplace crackling, and some bloody good booze accompanied by simple and delicious comfort food. In light of Brexit, we can understand if you're not overly keen on visiting the UK at the moment. Instead you can just trot on over to Paddington, and find yourself a cushy nook in new bar and eatery Hope and Anchor. more

Fried chicken is the ultimate comfort food and is exponentially better when made with love and care.
