It's high time I wrote a review of my favourite pub. I've been going, regularly, to the Woolston Hop since it opened. The atmosphere is always welcoming and relaxing, with staff that obviously really enjoy their jobs. As a professional brewer, I'm quite fussy when it comes to my recreational beer - the selection at The Hop never fails to... More

Stopped here recently on a makeshift pub crawl and really liked it. We didn't eat here but loved their beer. The women working the bar were also very friendly and helpful. They sell flights which are great for sampling different beers. One of our favorite beer bars in NZ.

Hi Jan and thanks for the feedback. I'm sorry that the full menu wasn't available when you visited on Sunday evening. It had been a busy weekend and some menu items had been used up. The chef that created the suitable menu for your daughter kindly attended at short notice due to the rostered chef becoming unwell and going off... More

The second visit confirmed what we experienced on the first one, great food and a superb selection of drinks. All of our party had well presented meals, menu was varied for a pub, with good vegetarian options available. The drinks selection is amazing for an establishment of this size, on tap beers and ciders were a hit with most of... More
