Gastro Pub
The Hop Vine formerly the ‘Royal Hotel’ was built in 1874 and was the main stopping off point for goods being transported to and from the old Turnpike road the A59. The Royal as it was known has served the community and travellers alike. To the rear of the building in our historic Cobbled Garden you will find our own brewery housed in the stables which were used for the horses and stage coaches as they passed through the village. From Ales to YPA’s, to Blonde beers we are a small producer using primary English hops brewing exclusively in house for The Hop Vine and our sister pub the Legh Arms.

Our countryside sister the Legh Arms is our latest addition to the family and is situated in the pretty hamlet of Mere Brow. Here we serve our trademark delicious home produced quality food and excellent home brewed ales. Your hosts Mike & Julie and their superb team bring a wealth of experience in the trade and have sourced the best in the local area to tempt you.

We have been twice to the hop vine in the last month and half and both times were amazing. The food is absolutely gorgeous and the salt n pepper ribs are to die for! We will be returning time and time again. Thank you

Been eating here for years without any Complaints. On this occasion, I found my mushroom starter to be a touch too salty, my main course of confit of duck was very dry and didn't work with the bubble & squeak and blueberries. The bottle of red Portuguese wine was fairly bland and not worth £20.
Maybe I shouldn't have booked with all this covid stuff going on, as it's slightly tarnished my view of the place, and probably won't return now, until things return to normal, if they ever will. 1st time I've been disappointed here 😔.

Always a pleasure to visit the hop vine. We were in the piano room but didn't like it felt too 'crowded'. Will request to be in another section when we come again and we will.

Excellent food, service was very efficient and the staff were very attentive. The meal was also very very good value for money. My husband went for the Steak & Grape special, and I had the Hunters Chicken, both meals were very tasty, and came piping hot. Dessert was Baileys Cheesecake with pouring cream, which was delicious and we were able to share it.

Gorgeous roast dinner as usual
Service wasn’t the best this time, we had to wait for our seat for 20 mins and then were not given menus we had to ask for them
We also had to ask could we order
Normally can’t fault this place but service was not the best but food as always was delicious

The food was great as usual but the service was poor.We arrived at 6:55 for our 7:00 booking and got drinks then waited for our starter until 7:50 and this this theme went on through to dessert. We left soon after our dessert and that was 9:50
