The Hope & Anchor is quite possibly the best little local in Brisbane.  Housed in a Heritage listed cottage that served as a bakery in Paddington in the late 1800’s the venue, gives a nod to the British settlers that built the area which is reflected in the Pub style service and food and drink offerings.  They do require all group bookings 20 or greater on Friday or Saturday nights to choose from one of the set menu offerings which feature the most popular items from the menu as well as a few extra delights.  They can accommodate most dietary requirements and the food is aplenty.

There are three areas suitable for large group bookings or functions, each offering something charmingly different.


The ceiling drips with a hanging garden and copper spun lights cast off a glowing hue onto the original working brick fireplace – the Conservatory is a great spot for Lunch or Dinner.


Consisting of four 6-seater booths and two stand-alone tables, the room is lined with Vintage British Wallpaper, maritime artwork and the odd pheasant or two.  Suited best for exclusive bookings for up to 28 guests, however they can accommodate a single group up to 10 in size.


For something a little more intimate, the Captains Attic offers an almost self-contained experience - Pre-select your wines – they stock the fridge with beer and wine and you pay for what you consume.  A variety of Banquets are available.
