The Anchor & Hope, Waterloo

+ Baked vanilla and poppy seed cheesecake
+ Seasonal focus
+ More than 1,000 covers a week
+ Michelin inspector's favourite
Jonathan Jones’ cooking at the Anchor & Hope, which he opened alongside Robert Shaw, Harry Lester and Mike Belben in 2003, has attracted massive acclaim for his religious devotion to seasonality.
His is a kitchen in which serving artichokes in summer is tantamount to treason. It’s also a remarkably high pressure kitchen to work in, serving upwards of 1,000 covers a week – making the consistency and skill displayed in the food even more impressive.
Thanks to Jones and his team’s work, the pub has been previously named an ‘inspectors’ favourite’ by Michelin.
