Still much as described by Roger. It's a pub to visit to see the remaining tiles, etched glass, mirrors and ceilings. Unfortunately none of this seems to be appreciated by
its current target market. Pool table and dartbboard still there in the upper bar. Toilets in a dreadful state. Spitfire on but I didn't want to risk it.

One of the more earthy drinking venues in the area, the Hope & Anchor can be found tucked away behind Koko (formerly the Camden Palace) at the Mornington Crescent end of town. The front section sticks out into the pavement and appears to be a later addition. The pub does retain several classic pub features, notably the external glazed tiling (and the decorative tiling by the front door), a few remnants of patterned wndows in the doorways themselves, a glazed sunlight and some ornate ceilingwork.

Internally, it is quite basic and quite tatty with bare worn floorboards and ad hoc décor and furnishings. To the left of the bar is a raised section containing a darts area and to the right, a separate room with pool table. Behind the bar itself is a wonderful personalized mirror bearing the names of the moniker of the London Distillery & North Western Brewery
Both the staff and customers I have found a bit linguistically basic for want of a better term but it generally seems friendly enough although it has always lacked any real atmosphere beyond a few small cliqey groups on my visits.

The only ale is Courage Best and the quality is a bit hit or miss although at £3 it is quite reasonably priced for the area. A brace of TV’s over the doorways and one in the pool room as well as a big screen provide a vehicle for sporting events whilst the juke box can spout out anything from Dean Martin to the Pogues depending on which part of its eclectic customer base is present.

It’s an OK pub if you like them rough and ready and for a meeting place or as part of a crawl it will do a job but it’s not really a place to get over-excited about even if it is one of the more traditional boozers in the area.
