Save the Hop
This pub has been my local for a while now and is like my second home! The place is always a friendly place to be whether it for a chat wit ur mates, a bloody gd night out or for a curry and footy or just a few games of pool. the place is great. after hearing they are removin the sports tv and all the sports pics etc means that greene king are ripping the heart and soul out of the pub, its just not the same and the custom is gonna change. ppl will stay at home to watch the footy! Bring back the sports!!!

Wicked!!
I absolutley love this place. And I don't know anybody who doesn't. 7 days of the week - this is the place to be!
They have even started to serve pea pints and mayo cocktails to anyone willing to drink them!

FANTASTIC AND SO WELCOMING!!
What a wonderful pub!! The atmosphere is just brilliant, evrybody from staff to customers to the pub dog is so welcoming. It's a brilliant place to drink in and share times with your peers, i couldn't beleive the hospitality of the staff, how kind and friendly they are. After going in this pub a few times i got to know the bond between all customers, everyone looks out for everyone not only is it a place to gather but its like a family living room people of all ages can visit and feel comfortable in this pub. BRILLIANT!!!!

Dire
I went into this establishment recently, the first thing i noticed was the age of the plebeians. Looked like the riff-raff had just come out of school and the parks drinking cider only months previously, and out of their council estates, in their fake burberry and cheap tat, drinking alcopops as though they'd never tried a real bit of firewater. I couldn't believe the language too, flipping and cursing like there was no tomorrow. I asked for a pint of ale. The taste on my pallette was appalling. It was flat and tasted as though my pint had ejaculatory deposits in it. This led to my entry into the toilet in an attempt to defecate my bowels and almost hold back the vomitus by the stench of urine and faecal matter splattered up the sides of the bowl. As i left the toilet, two youths came in bursting into the cubicle, obviously to do a bit of cocaine, otherwise they were a pair of queer boys. I was outraged and asked to speak to the landlady, appropriately named Stella as this was the only decent pint they sold and that was awful too. She wasn't interested in my concern. I was appalled by this attitude and led to my immediate departure. AVOID unless you are 16-20

Heavenly
What can I say. Words fail me they really do. If you ever visit the hop and vine (and it must be on everyones list of things to do before they die) then please go on a Friday night. Recently redecorated, none of the charm has been lost from this haven of youth and debauchery. You step into an atmosphere that is palpable and distinguishable from the neighbouring Spyglass and Kettle that wishes it could be the Hop and Vine but fails so miserably. It may be crammed and there may be a skinhead youth glowering at you and your friends but there is no aspect of fear amongst the stench of Tommy Hilfigger and Corkys. A truly wonderful sight is good old Stella behind the bar always offering a piece of advice or a shoulder to cry on even if you've only just met. Sadly, Friday sees the arrival of the Amadeus night-bus that parks up across the road and escorts the clientele away like the boats at Dunkirk. No worries for there is now free access to the jukebox that may have been used for serenading your better half with techno but can now be roamed for any number of classic hits. Be sure to sample the grub and if possible have your ashes scattered here. For this surely is heaven on earth.
