Third of our East Yorkshire pubs, this one is next to an RSPB reserve. It has a lovely view over the river and felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. I've never seen the kind of railway level crossing we had to negotiate on the way here from Howden. Press the button to get the operator out of his shed and he will come and manually open the gates! The Hope & Anchor seemed to be popular for its food. But the ale selection wasn't too bad and staff will offer you a sample before you buy. On during our visit was Derventio Centurion, Marstons Pedigree, Wychwood Hobgoblin, Jennings Dark Mild & Copper Dragon Spring Gold. Worth a visit.

Cambridge Spies? Ah - that would be the Alan Plater play "The Blacktoft Diaries" I suppose. Is there some memorabilia on show now?

A little out the way, but well worth it. Had 3 real ales on, during my visit, all in top condition. Food is well above average (Try the steak pie) and the place is an ideal location for any special family gathering.

We visited in September 2010 when a new kitchen block was almost completed, so the entrance was at the "getting better" stage. We have visited before a number of times. Hopefully we shall be going again. When building work is completed early in 2011 the facilities will be much improved. And if you want to bone up on the Cambridge Spies, this is the place to do it!

The setting is excellent (picturesque isn't a word one can say for a lot of pubs around Goole) and one does need to have the confidence to keep going if driving there for the first time. It is clearly a popular place for local people to eat out, and one can see why - the menu was not adventurous but the pub did the ordinary things well (my fish and chips was very good). The beers included a good dark mild, and I didn't find a duff one among the three I tried. The landlord and staff were helpful and friendly, fitting me in when it seemed every table was reserved. A sunset walk along the river floodbank to finish - splendid.
