Nice decor although a little loud without any soft furnishings. No music. This place doesn’t sell the common beers so when I asked could I try one “I was met with a sarcastic reply” so I’m unsure what lol visit again.

Good choice of craft ales on the bar, reasonable prices, great atmosphere, quirky furniture - and they do great pizza as well! What's not to like? Recommended.

The Hop has a good choice and variety of well kept beers at reasonable prices. There is a good friendly atmosphere and the seating arrangements mean you often get to chat with other customers.
