We came here last Saturday and had one of the best nights in a while. We stayed in the back room and listened to the old skool punk, rock, emo music we used to listen to years ago. Great place!

Lovely ale from the Ossett Brewery and others. Set in a cul de sac so beer garden is quiet. Staff are friendly and prices are reasonable. What’s not to like.

Always A GOOD evening out. Bar staff, always smiling. Only fault, wish there was a full length mirror in the restroom. Never a bad night in the Hop! Can't wait to return!!

Beer was good - focused a lot on Ossett and Rat (pub owned by them) but still a few guests on. Music very good - as you expect from the home. Great interior and the atmosphere is great. Popular place .

Went in this bar yesterday whilst out in Wakefield. Its hidden off the main Westgate road on bank street, but well worth visiting. A selection of real ales and good choice of wines too. There was no live music on yesterday afternoon but I understand...More
