The food was amazing, I had a steak, my partner a lasagne, and the staff were attentive to how I liked it cooked and what I would like with it. The pub has a definite family feel ,and the... More

We arrived by bicycle around midday on a Sunday after cycling a lovely route from Bath through the Two Tunnels Greenway. All tables had reserved signs so we knew the food must be good. Although fully booked we were offered a table for two in the bar area right by the log fire, that would not be occupied for another... More

Large choice on menu but even more important, daily specials! Food never disappoints, and always generous. Staff friendly and efficient.

We have been meaning to cycle through the two tunnels to the Hope and Anchor for some time. A beautiful sunny autumn day gave us that excuse today and we weren't disappointed. Beautiful autumnal colours from the trees lining the cycle path set the scene - the path goes actually into the pub car park so you can't miss it!... More

Since it was an unexpectedly lovely day, we decided to cycle out to the Hope and Anchor. Obviously a lot of other people had the same idea because the poor landlady was on her own, serving everyone. She did so well! Our tuna was beautiful - served with a salad and big chips. Generous portion of tuna, too. Made us... More

We travelled from Bath Centre to find a country pub for dinner. We received a very warm welcome from the staff. The young male waiter was very helpful, polite and efficient. The dishes we all selected were voted delicious, freshly cooked and well presented. Very generous portions of fresh vegetables accompanied the meals and we all voted the Hope &... More

Friendly service but very poor food. Large quantities of inedible or at least unappetising food. No understanding of cooking techniques or ingredients. I would suspect the chef has no training except to pass hygiene regs.

Sorry to read your review. I don't know when you visited or what you ate but, in fact, the chef has many, many years of experience and a wealth of knowledge about cooking skills and ingredients....if you were unhappy with your meal it would have been much better to say something at the time so that we could offer you...
