MACBETH STREET W6 Hope and Anchor Public House


II Public House. c.1936 for Truman's. Architect unknown. Brown brick in Flemish Bond with hipped tiled roof behind parapet. Three-storey corner pub in a Neo-Georgian style to complement the contemporary housing estate.

EXTERIOR: Three window bays to Macbeth Street, one bay canted corner and wider two window bay return to Riverside Gardens, this with central chimney with stone cornice and scrolled shoulders. At ground floor, a continuous stepped and rendered cornice above unpainted wooden windows with reeded detailing and moulded brick cills. Pair of doors to canted corner with PUBLIC BAR brass signage. First and second storeys have wood sashes joined by panel between storeys and under concrete plaque at parapet. Further single-storey range to Riverside Gardens has paired doors with SALOON BAR brass signage flanked by windows. Wall continues behind which covered loggia with Doric colonnade.

INTERIOR: Much of the special interest lies in the remarkably intact interior. Interest here includes the survival of plan with the Public Bar to the front and the Saloon Bar to the rear. These rooms each contain their original bar counters, bar-back and panelling in polished hardwood and lettering advertising Truman's Ales. Also surviving are panelled half-height screens at the entrance, a Truman's mirror and clocks, two brick fireplaces with nautical theme brick plaques, fitted seating at perimeter and the spittoon trough in the saloon bar with chequerwork tiling. Between the two rooms is exterior access to the upper floors, which were not inspected, and where the off-sales window was originally, but this is lost.

HISTORY: Completed 1936 to serve the surrounding Riverside Gardens Housing Estate that was developed 1929 as part of a slum clearance programme.

Listed as particularly fine and intact example of an inter-war pub in a Neo-Georgian style, designed as an integral part of the attached contemporary housing estate (not in itself regarded as of special interest). The main interest lies internally, where the plan form and fittings such as the bar counters, panelling, original Truman's advertising, tiled spitoon, seating and fireplaces survive.
