A good, honest, tasty Sunday Lunch in a real local - that was our experience of the Hope and Anchor in Wirksworth, itself a good, honest Peak District town with oodles of history. A bonus was the modest price of the meal, and friendly service....More

This place has the best location in the whole town being right on the market square but it hasn't seen a lick of paint or an upholsterers staple gun in decades. Smoke stained walls & ceiling are matched by filthy ripped seating & grubby furnishings....More

Visited on Saturday night and the pub was fairly quiet. However this was okay for us. The bar maid was attentive and friendly. I would return here for a quiet drink before moving on somewhere else later in the evening.

The atmosphere in here was warm and welcoming although the décor was a little dated and could have done with a lick of paint. The guy behind the bar was very helpful and pleasant. Would go back for a drink.

Perfect place for a nightcap away from noisier venues in this distinctive little Derbyshire town. Good selection of malt whiskies.
