About the Pub

It offers ten cask ales, four of which are brewed in-house at the Hope's very own micro-brewery, ‘Fool Hardy Ales’ ( That name is nod to the past history of the Hope which started life as a Hardy's Crown Ales brewery house; this was then acquired by Bass. Ownre, Martin has worked in the past with Outstanding Brewery's Dave Porter, and indeed Dave installed the micro-brewery here. Other changing ales from breweries across the country are available, alongside foreign draught and bottled beers. There's a real cider too. Two compact rooms, vault to left with a small games room to the rear of that. In the games area you will find a table football machine, a retro arcade video game, and a classic pinball machine. The more comfortably appointed lounge with raised-seating area is to the right. Throughout is done in a modern decor with lovely polished wood floors. Lunches in the form of cold pies are available, these are being served Sun-Thu noon till 8, Fri-Sat noon till 7. Note: brewery tours of the in-house Fool Hardy Brewery take place on a Thursday evening (check with the pub for availablilty). History: Acquired by Martin and Samantha Wood (nee Halfyard) in late 2012 and opened its doors to the public under its new guise on 7/2/13. So effective a transformation has been achieved that it has turned a dead duck into a gem that won it branch Pub of the Year for 2014.
