Food was brilliant as usual, great night, thoroughly enjoyed by all
Food was ok I think I just ordered the wrong thing never had a bad meal there before ,I would dine here again .
Fantastic food and service, outdoor area well covered and plenty of heating. Will definitely be back.
What a great night we had - food, beer, wine were all excellent as usual. Most impressive of all was how well run it was in line with all the current guidelines. Sorry I don’t know her name but the lady who was managing the table staff and the general running of the place did so with enthusiasm and good humour - she was an absolute credit to the venue.
Fab service, freshly cooked food, lovely outdoor atmosphere
Very friendly staff always happy to help and smiling even when working in cold conditions. Great food as always. Highly recommend the beef sticky salad and chunky chips 5*

Food was amazing and staff was lovely
Lovely afternoon. Great food and service. Was lovely to be able to return to the Hop vine.
Great food, fab service, lovely lunch. Just needed the sun to shine .
We've been here a number of times and as always the food and service was very good.
We booked for the two of us a few weeks before and the food and service was spot on.
I hoped we’d be in the tent at the back but unfortunately we were on the front of the building and as expected it was cold. There was a heater quite nearby but you didn’t get any benefit from it. I wore multiple layers and they gave me a blanket which was great felt warmer thanks to the staff a lovely meal and great British weather no rain 🌧
Food always excellent. The outside area was cold and service seemed a little chaotic. Won’t go again with outside only but definitely when we can dine inside.
Great food and beer, nice setup outside and no issues with distancing. Will revisit.
Been many times can not fault it at all always had a great time nice friendly atmosphere.
Draught Moretti and good food is the best combination going :) we had the meat & fish platter between us as a starter which we thought was both very good and very tasty followed by fish & chips for 3 guests, Steak for another and burger for the last guest.
All enjoyed the food & drink and just a pity we still have to eat outside as the temperature did drop very low and the heaters really did not help much which ended up cutting short our visit due to the cold.
Roll on summer, and roll on full opening ....
Food was perfect
Staff looked after us so well
Our experience at the Hop Vine was wonderful as always. We were 30 minutes late due to our pre-booked taxi deciding not to show up, yet the staff were wonderfully gracious and put us at ease as we explained the situation over the phone. I was worried my birthday would be ruined and we'd lose our table, but they welcomed us at the door as soon as we arrived and took our drinks order on the way to our table - exactly what was needed! The food was to die for as usual, and it was lovely sitting in the courtyard area at the back. My one miniscule nitpick is that the lovely chimeneas they have outside to keep us warm were turned off/ran out of fuel about 9pm, so the last hour was a bit chilly, but we had a lovely time regardless and I'm sure it was just a one off, of perhaps they do it on purpose for safety I don't know. Overall a 10/10 birthday dinner, I can't wait to visit again soon!
We were so looking forward to going back to The Hop as we have always had a good time there. On a special occasion for us, my husbands birthday, they did not let us down. Fabulous food at a great price and amazing staff!! Well done all!!
Food fab! Service excellent will definitely visit again
Amazing food brilliant service! Prices are brilliant for the quality of food! 100% coming back here!!!
Fantastic service from the lovely girls, could not have done more to accommodate us! Very friendly and amazing food and great value!
As always couldn’t fault the food, outstanding as ever. The seat we had was in a draft and the patio heater alongside us had a faulty timer so it only stayed on for a few seconds. We did report this and the waitress said she would ask someone to look at it which didn’t happen. Also each drink we ordered seemed to take an age to arrive and we had to ask passing staff if they could check where the drinks were up to. These were probably just issues with it being a very busy sunny Saturday evening.
Everything was amazing.... as always!
Just really good, No complaints at all. Staff where brilliant, Food was good and not over priced. Would recommend to anyone.
Fab as always.
food was really nice and the service was great just did not like sitting out at the front by the busy main road
Unfortunately we were seated at front of pub on the main road (we did realize that this was a possibility when we booked, so not too surprised). On the plus side we were seated in the glorious sunshine, shielded from the cool breeze, and able to watch the world go by. The food was excellent, I had a steak and my wife had the sticky chicken. The beer was well kept, as usual, and the wine went down a treat. Overall an enjoyable experience. The pub and their team are doing their utmost to get as close to normal as current rules allow. Well done and thanks to everyone involved.
