Thanks for visiting!

Welcome to the Anchor and Hope Public House located in the village of Ash, Kent, about two miles from Brands Hatch Racing circuit and four miles from Bluewater.  

The Anchor & Hope is an independent country pub run and owned by Emma Pearson & Benjamin Eldridge.  Along with a great team of people our aim is to ensure that you have a good time, whatever your reason for visiting us.

Our pub and restaurant combines a modern contemporary feel with the beauty of a 16th Century coaching Inn.  We have an extensive range of beers, wines and spirits and three well kept real ales for those of you who enjoy a good pint. If you are looking to dine with us then we have both a bar menu or a restaurant menu for you to choose from. 

As a country pub, we do welcome well behaved dogs in our bar area - however, we do appreciate that this is not appealing for all of our guests. Our restaurant is a dog-free zone, so if you would rather be seated here for your meal, please do let a member of staff know on arrival.

We have a large patio area to the front and side of the pub and a very large garden. There is also plenty of parking so whatever your reason - a holiday or day out in Kent, a shopping trip to Bluewater, or a trip to Brands Hatch, why don’t you pop in and see us? You can even stay the night in one of our en-suite bedrooms.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Anchor and Hope in the near future.
