Blue Scrumpy left this review about Hope & Anchor

Situated just across the road from the Queen's Head, this was very much the inferior pub of the two.

As a former Brakspear pub, it is now owned by Marston's. Two real ales were on - Brakspear Oxford Gold & Hogs Back TEA. Old beams and fairly low ceilings give it a little character, but as with many other pubs in Wokingham, the Hope & Anchor was quiet and lacked atmosphere.

A one roomed low ceilinged Brakespears pub, the beer choice was ordinary and expensive,
Brakespear Bitter and Top Notch,Hobgoblin ,Hogs Back Tea and Deuchars IPA at £2.20 a half.
Not a great pub ,dropped a point on price.

This is one of six original Brakspear pubs in the Wokingham area and remarkably all six are still open. Only three could be regarded as being in the centre of Wokingham and this is one of them. It's a single L shaped bar with wooden floors but there is a small carpeted snug on the far right. There is a bar billiards table and a darts area down the far end on the left. It was quiet on my Friday afternoon visit.
The bar has five hand pumps with Brakspear Bitter, Oxford Gold & Hooray Henley, Hobgoblin and Thatcher's Cider. I went for the Hooray Henley (£3.80) which was in excellent condition but at that price it ought to be.
I thought this was pleasant enough but if the price paid for the 4% ABV beer is typical I won't be returning.
