Bar to rear as you enter. Seats beforehand. Five cask and nine keg. Not a bad place at all - would return.

Real Ale Ray left this review about House of Hop

This is a husband and wife venture, the wife owns and runs the bar, whilst her husband provides a selection of cask beer, as he works as a brewer for Three Brothers Brewery. Three handpumps on our visit, serving a house beer called House of Hop Blonde, brewed by Three Brothers. Also on was Wild Weather Full of Beans and North East IPA, another one from Three Brothers. All their beers were in top condition and averaged around £3.50 a pint. The interior had exposed brick walls, flagstone floor, a copper top counter and another feature was the casks were stored up high, in a small chiller behind the bar.

Old Boots left this review about House of Hop

Probably a shop conversion but with scary staff, mostly a square room with booth seating one side, bench seating on the other and tall garden chairs in the middle, there’s an alcove with tall stools to one side. Three pulls at one end of the counter and a horseshoe of ten interesting kegs at the other. Fairy lights and industrial lighting can only add to the overall but gentle pretention. As the beer was so good I ignored that stuff.
