Thanks for visiting!

Welcome to the Anchor & 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 and 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 & Hope in the near future.
