The Hop is a traditional Real Ale house with a unique atmosphere, situated right under Leeds railway station in the old dark arches vaulted ceilings. Featuring graffiti across the walls and a modern half-industrial design will leave you feeling in the right place.
Enjoy a variety of ales they have on tap. Even if crowded, there's plenty of space upstairs to sit down and have a chat. When hungry, try one of the high quality and fine tasting pies. Also mouth watering and simply scrumptious: the pizza options.
The Hop is also renowned for providing the best in live music from across the decades. Cover bands featuring tunes from Blues to Rock, Soul to Indie, Funk to Pop, take the stage every Saturday while every Wednesday sees acoustic sessions. All set in an intimate atmosphere, favouring the unplugged feel that comes from close contact between artists and members of the public. Best of all: free entry.
