At The Hope & Anchor, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.
Step into our sustainable and eco-conscious pub, where we take pride in our sustainable practices and celebrate the "Whole AnimalProject."
Not only do we shine bright with energy-efficient systems in place, but we also prioritise sustainable foods to create a one-of-a-kind dining experience.
With our "Whole Animal Project," whether it be our “Whole Cow”, “Whole Pig “, “Whole Winteringham Lamb” or “Whole Venison”, we embrace a zero-waste approach, ensuring that every part of the animal is utilised.
We make the most of every ingredient, ensuring each dish is bursting with flavour while leaving a positive impact on the environment.
With the aid of our dry ageing cabinet and indoor Josper charcoal grill barbecue, we enhance the natural flavours of our ingredients, delivering a truly responsible gastronomy experience that's both delicious and environmentally conscious.
But it’s not all about the meat, we also take pride in crafting our own pickles, chutneys, and brioche buns and much more right here in-house, in fact there isn't much we don't prepare ourselves!.
By preparing these delicious additions ourselves, we reduce packaging waste and support local suppliers, contributing to a more sustainable menu.
Our passionate chefs skilfully do their own butchery, and craft delectable dishes from nose to tail, leaving no delicious morsel to waste.
At the Hope and Anchor pub, sustainability goes beyond sourcing locally; The team also takes pride in foraging for the finest ingredients straight from nature.
In Broughton Woods, we gather sorrel and wild garlic, while Robin Hood's Bay provides us with nutrient-rich kelp, sea lettuce, samphire and sea purslane.
Embracing the bounty of the land, we also harvest elderberries, wild cherries, and walnut from the village of Winteringham.
Indulge in our menu featuring farm-to-table delights sourced from local farmers and suppliers who share our commitment to sustainability.
As you savour each bite, you'll experience the true essence of our dedication to the environment and responsible gastronomy.
Join us in our journey towards a greener future while relishing the finest flavours, conscious dining has never been more delightful!
Cheers to a sustainable feast at The Hope & Anchor pub!
