Hope and Anchor is a pub on Upper Street, in the London Borough of Islington which first opened its doors in 1880.
During the mid-1970s it was one of the first pubs to embrace the emergent, but brief, phenomenon of pub rock. With the decline of this movement, the pub went on to become a leading venue in the punk rock movement. The Hope and Anchor is still an operational pub and live music venue today, owned and operated by the Greene King brewing company. Venue facilities have been improved via refurbishments over the years.
It is a Grade II listed building.
