“Hip Hop Happening”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

An interesting take on the theme of a modern real ale bar - a great bar that happens to serve very good, authentic pizzas, too! So you'll get the choice of up to 10 real ales on hand-pull and (if you fancy it) the chance to grab a great pizza, hand made while you wait and cooked in a traditional (probably gas fired, though!) pizza oven. All rather good - with the added bonus that on a Friday and Saturday night they have excellent free live music. Please bear in mind that this is not a restaurant - it's a bar that also serves pizza. Go with that in mind and you'll have a great time! If it all gets a bit too boisterous, simply pop across the road to the Bluebell pub, which is equally brilliant, but in a completely different way.

“Really good”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

We popped into the Hop for a beer recently and was really impressed. There are literally hundreds of pubs in York, but his one is worth a visit. There are a large selection of real ales served at the correct temperature, the service is good and the atmosphere when we went, last Friday was great. There was even a singer entertaining the crowd which was good.

Overall,we were very impressed and we will return!

We popped in for lunch just before Christmas. A great place for a drink and pizza - pizza all freshly made, and delicious. Great value and excellent pub.

“Poor customer service”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Land lord decided to inform my friend who I was having a drink with that he was going to call time and asked him if he would like another drink my friend said yes and got a drink. When I asked him he said no that he had called time and left me stood with my friend while he had a drink and would not serve but pulled drinks for all the bar staff his attitude was very disturbing

“A great place for an hour or so”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

This is a recent addition to the rapidly developing York beer scene. A massive building transformed into a great bar with a basic pizzeria. Other reviewers have said it all.
Come here for great beer, a good simple pizza and fair prices.
The lack of any cutlery is a bit strange.
Try it
