“Burnt Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2013

We booked a table for 2, table ok not much room to move around or relax. Warm with the fire which was good, had a good look through the menu lots to choose from, we both chose Beef the Sunday Roast which was priced at £11.95 each quite pricey we only got 3 roasties which were very burnt could hardly put the fork through them mine nearly flew off the plate as they were so hard to cut open, large yorkshire pud which again was very burnt and hard to eat, veg ok my partner didnt have any peas on his plate where as I did gravy ok the mash potato was a little lumpy not a good meal, the night before we had ate at the lakeview bar at Mount Murray and this was far better meal and better priced, we wouldnt rush back to the Mount murray, also employ more staff as the waiting times werent good, waited ages for BURNT meals.

“Excellent food. Good Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2012

With a roaring log fire and friendly atmosphere

We compliment the chef on a wonderful meal this evening

Fish Mediterranean style - great presentation and plenty of it

“It could be so nice...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

Every time I go to the Hop Garden I really want to give it another chance and like it. It's a great building, with a nice conservatory and ideally located for stopping for lunch on the way to the airport, but that's the best thing about it. My cider baked ham was a thin slice of something very processed, and my aunt's omelette was large but not that tasty - all in all a bit disappointing. Again.
