Paid a visit to the Hope on Saturday evening. A few people in but not packed. The owners have either sold up, or are in the process of selling up, but the pub is still currently open. The Fool Hardy Ales brewery previously based here is now defunct and from what I can gather the brewer has moved to Howard Town.

11 hand pulls at the bar, of which 5 were on, so still a fair amount of choice even with the Fool Hardy beers no longer on the pumps.

Quiet and traditional with a room either side of the bar. Payment accepted via cash or card. No background music, just conversation. A bit of a trek from the centre but worth the detour, in my opinion.

Enjoyed our visit to this Fool Hardy brewery pub with its massive ale selection with 11 to choose from. Around half from their own brewery plus guests. The downside for us was coming here after a big pub crawl of many good ale houses, but we still enjoyed Fool Hardy Rhidonkolous and Crafty Monkey Sunset Now. There are keg tap choices too plus foreign beers.

Doesn't look much from the outside but the inside is a different story if you are a real ale lover. As others have said, the room to the right is where the cask ale is and I think there were 10 or 11 pumps, which may have included a cider. A fair few of these are from their own Fool Hardy brewery and their Renowned Ginger was very pleasant with a prominent ginger kick. Overwhelmed by choice we stayed for a second drink, this time I went for the Duck Dastardly by Green Duck Beer Co, which was a dandelion and burdock stout - pleasant and unusual in equal measure, and in great condition. My drinking accomplice had the Russian Roulette (by Fool Hardy) and I had a little sip and this was also a decent ale. This pub obviously has no problem in keeping its real ale in good nick despite the quantity it has on offer. This is a large pub with a traditional feel inside, and a great selection of real ale. Pricing was middle of the road - not outrageously expensive and not suspiciously cheap. I would be more than happy to come back again!
