Drink at the Anchor & Hope, Charlton

It's always a shame when you take a picture which doesn't do a location justice and the Anchor & Hope, with its terrace and large windows looking straight out onto the Thames certainly has that. Surrounded by what is still an area of riverside industrial sites, with aggregates providers at Murphys Wharf and Angerstein Wharf just to the east bringing gravel from dredgers and boats on the river, and plenty of other units surrounding the pub meaning this is a popular spot for some after-work drinking.

The fact that the small lane running past the pub doesn't really go anywhere is probably good and bad for this pub in equal measure, for the only passing trade comes from the Thames Path as it approaches its end, but those who do find it are afforded tranquillity, except for occasional banging and clanking from nearby or across the river. It is also worthy of a mention for having surely one of London's most budget-friendly menus.
