Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Hop Inn

With the nearby Little Hop still closed due to continuing Covid restrictions, I paid a repeat visit to the Hop, almost 2 years since my initial visit. My repeat visit confirms my view that this is still the best pub in the town.

Track and trace formalities are completed at a table near the entrance, which appears to be more like a reception. For some strange reason we couldn't quite figure out, you are given a pumpclip with a number on it to take to your table. Ours was for an Arbor beer!

The beer selection was once again good, with Ramsbury Hop Inn Pale the regular beer, alongside 6 guests. These were Arbor Shambala, Frome RA, North Cotswold Summer Solstice, Gloucester Cascade, Bristol Beer Factory Milk Stout & Kettlesmith Outline. In addition, there is a good selection of craft beers and a couple of boxed real ciders - Weston's Old Rosie & Sandford Orchards Cider Ginger.

Helen Iwanczuk left this review about The Hop Inn

The Hop Inn seems to be settling into it's new home – two doors up from the original location, which has become The Little Hop. The interior of the pub is laid out with eclectic furniture, ranging from leather easy chairs, to rustic looking tables. The sense of space continues outside to the back courtyard where people were happily chatting away. The pub offers the same wide selection of ales, as it's predecessor, there were cheese and ham rolls available, and a black board advertising ribs and burgers. The staff and customers were friendly, which added to the chilled atmosphere - anybody could feel comfortable here. All in all, a smart move indeed.

Quinno _ left this review about The Pig on the Hill

A modern pub over two floors. Light and airy inside with white sofas, modern furnishing and sports TV. Aimed at the aspirant crowd. Three ales; Rev James Gold, Sharps Atlantic and a decent drop of Ramsbury Bitter. Slack Alice cider also on. Thought it was a fair stop.
