Bucking Fastard left this review about Lord Hop

A first class micro pub in a former street corner shop unit.The ground floor has the bar to the left with stillage barrels connected to the handpumps on the bar,which number 9 in total ,although not all will function together.The rest of the room has small tables surrounded by stools,while close to the door is a raised darts throw (obsured by empty barrels on my trip) with just about enough room for another table.The ground floor is where the regulars will banter with the owner and the atmosphere is friendly and inclusive.A TV screen lists what's on draught and judging by the vast collection of pump clips some very fine ale has been served here.
Upstairs is a quieter seating area and a decent size with more comfortable tables and chairs.No muzak,screens,fruit machines so this place meets all the micro pub criteria.There was also a jar of pickled eggs on the bar.
On my trip the ale selection was Sarah Hughes Surprise,Gun Dog Lord Barker and Bad to the Bone along with a terrific G Brewery Session IPA which the guv'nor warned me was hazy,nice touch.In addition there were 2 real ciders.
This would be my first port of call in Nuneaton for a great pint or three,it's a superb micro and should not be missed.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Lord Hop

Excellent micro-pub with an apparent total of three tables (although a larger room is available upstairs for busy periods), but a counter with nine handpumps. Six of these were on when I visited, offering four interesting beers - First Chop Hop, Lord Barker from Gun Dog, Hopback Haka and Leatherbritches Raspberry Belter (£3.00, and thankfully not over-flavoured) - plus a couple of cask ciders (with four more in some other draught form also listed). Well worth seeking out.

Aqualung . left this review about Lord Hop

As noted below this is a "proper" micropub with no music or TVs and it didn't appear to sell any spirits. It was originally a nail bar and the lower room is about average size for a micropub. I didn't investigate upstairs.
There were 4 beers available, Castle Rocxk Black Gold, Fernandes Barley Promise, Kirkstall Pale and Thornbridge Flora & The Griffin. I went for the Barley Promise (£3.00) and Flora & The Griffin (£3.60) both of which were excellent.
I thought this was a very good micropub.
