The Hop & Vine
The Hop & Vine offers traditional British fare alongside Mediterranean specialities in a highly successful combination that is hugely popular with locals. The venue is child and dog friendly and makes a great place for lunch, afternoon coffee, tea, or a cheeky glass of wine, evening drinks or a party with family and friends. Perhaps start with a cocktail (there are also mocktails), a glass of wine from the well-chosen list or gin from the extensive menu, accompanied by nibbles such as feta-stuffed baby red peppers, dough balls with garlic butter, and a mezze platter for sharing. Move on to mains that range from salads and stone-baked pizzas to fish and chips and homemade burgers. There are also plenty of vegetarian and vegan choices. The traditional roast is a big hit on Sundays, as are the real ales and craft lagers, and takeaways are available too.
