“Make sure you visit!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

We have been several times and thoroughly enjoy the well priced meals and wonderful desserts. If you enjoy boutique beers this is the place to come. Great friendly customer service and a wonderful fire in winter!!

“Awesome atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013 via mobile

I went here for a drink and dessert and it was lovely! I had already eaten so didn't get a meal but a friend got the vegetarian nachos and highly recommended them. The staff were friendly and very professional too.

“Great meals and drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

Been here a few times in the last few months and it's always been great. The food,..although I feel the menu us limited, is great and enjoyed by all. My friends love the selection of bear and ciders and the wine list is good.
Good atmosphere and they sometimes have music.
Service is great and friendly.

“Go for the $6 pints 4 to 8 on Thursdays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013

The reincarnation of the Twisted Hop is great - beer, service and food is just as good as before Feb 2011 and I look forward to returning on my next visit to Chritchurch.

If there a few of you I suggest you book and reserve one of the booths.

On Thursday we enjoyed several $6 pints and some good reasonably priced pub grub - plenty to choose from but as I had already eaten out for lunch went for the bangers, mash and onion gravey for $16.50 which was good.

At 8pm a group came on and played some jazz/blues which was great - not too loud - at the far end of the bar we could still continue to have a conversation.
