The Hop is the heart and soul of Granary Wharf. Occupying two of the famous Dark Arches and a big beer garden, it’s hard to miss – especially on sunny days when it gets really busy.
The space inside is really large, with two comfortable seating areas on the ground floor and another big area on the mezzanine. There’s also lots of room for standing or dancing near the bar. The theme is indie music and this is reflected not just in the excellent soundtrack but also in the décor, which complements the exposed brickwork perfectly.
There is live music from local bands every Friday and Saturday, and they play on the mezzanine looking down to the bar below, which is unusual but gives everyone a great view. The beer garden opens out onto the canal basin, which is very peaceful even on busy days.
There are up to 11 cask ales on at any time, half from owners Ossett Brewery and a load of guests. There are a couple of interesting keg beers too (including Ossett’s Treacle Stout) and in the fridge there are a number of Belgian beers, Brooklyn, Sierra Nevada and Budvar. The prices for ale are very good indeed: even the guests are normally under £3. This is probably one of the best reliable no-nonsense selections we’ve seen anywhere.
We came here on Friday with friends & had a good time. Loads of beers to choose from at reasonable prices. Great atmosphere & brilliant band playing.
A very dark sort of decor in here and that goes for the gents bog as well!
Not the biggest of bogs inside. We have a medium sized metal p*ss trough on one side of a wall.
Not far away opposite the trough is a couple of cubicles. Very tight space actually between the trough and the cubicles opposite.
Right at the end of the toilet we have some individual square shaped sinks to wash our hands in.
We had a good night here and we will definitely be back. The bogs were to a competent standard.
