A look at the ‘Best Pub In Lincolnshire’ - The Hope And Anchor in South Ferriby
27th June 2017
Nestled on the banks of the River Humber and at the heart of the South Ferriby community, The Hope and Anchor has recently been awarded 'Best Pub in Lincolnshire' at the 2017 National Pub & Bar Awards, alongside two AA Rosettes and four gold stars. It's really not hard to see how The Hope and Anchor offers some of the finest food in Lincolnshire.
Above all, The Hope and Anchor is a village pub, a casual and informal space but with no compromise on the quality of the food.
They welcome a broad range of guests who appreciate the simple yet satisfying things in life, whether it be a cheeky pint after a walk with the dog or bird watching, sailing in via the Humber, or celebrating special occasions with great food.
Chef Patron Slawek Mikolajczyk's food style is strong and bold with an emphasis on simplicity. His respect and love for fresh, seasonal produce is combined with a quest for excellence in taste and flavour to create a menu of British favourites.
A glance through the menu will reveal the creativity of the kitchen team. Starters include beef tartare scotch egg with gherkins, mushrooms and fresh truffles; the finest king scallop served with smoked roe, belly pork, English asparagus and mushroom duxelles and Grimsby smoked haddock chowder with crispy poached egg.
To follow, Winteringham lamb served with wild mushrooms, runner beans and Jersey royals, steamed East Coast mussels with wild garlic cream or a choice of Lake District Farmers' steaks, aged for 40-60 days in the unique, MaturMeat cabinet and finished on the Josper.
To finish, the Hope and Anchor signature dessert is their Crème Brûlée and it really is a dish not to be missed.

The Hope and Anchor also features its own Hope and Anchor Ale, brewed by Caledonian, alongside a range of local and national breweries which change frequently.
General manager Amy Heward has worked closely with Bon Coeur Fine Wines to create a versatile and stylish wine list to suit all tastes and budgets. Superb cocktails and a vast range of soft drinks all contribute to the perfect place to unwind.
The pub itself has views over the River Humber, all the way to the Humber Bridge in the east and Read's Island in the west, and the bar area has the same fantastic menu and service.
Booking is advisable for the restaurant but is not required for the bar area.
To top off a fantastic meal, The Hope and Anchor now offers five welcoming, comfortable and stylish bedrooms in keeping with the warmth of the pub and restaurant downstairs. Each bedroom has been lovingly designed to offer a relaxed and happy stay. Each boasts a double or king size bed complete with luxurious faux fur throw, Nespresso coffee machines, large flat screen TV, modern shower rooms, digital clocks with iPod docking station and Duck Island toiletries. Three of our rooms have fantastic river views. Rates start from £95 per night and competitive corporate rates are available.
