    Time Out Says…

    Starters come sharpish, the Dorset crab on toast offering a pleasing ratio of flesh to mayonnaise, while Portobello mushrooms with brie and fresh herbs were equally satisfying. Mains aren’t far behind, but we had enough time between courses to observe things we hadn’t ordered as staff squeezed by. Lahmacun looked mouthwatering, the Barnsley chop intimidatingly huge.. Happily, though, sausage and mustard mash was as good as any you’d find in the Square Mile. All of this pub-style grub left little room for dessert though.

    The Guardian Says…

    It’s a clever menu that makes you want to order everything on it. It’s an even cleverer one that somehow compels you to order a hot dog while you’re deciding. And it’s a work of brilliance when everything you order from said menu turns out to be just as you’d hoped it would be... As with everything from the Galvin stable, Hop is a class act. From the breakfast takeaway counter’s eccles cakes and maple-cured bacon rolls to the beer cocktails – yes, beer cocktails, sprouting luxe cocktail garnishes in their dumpy, dimpled glasses, the Ann Widdecombe on Strictly of drinks – Galvin Hop is a triumph of simple things done simply well.

    Evening Standard Says…

    Where there’s a pub, there’s a pint and Hop are very proud of theirs. Gleaming tanks bulge proudly above the bar, full with fresh unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell, delivered once a week by a truck from the Czech Republic. They also offer a range of wines served from taps: while this sounds a little cheap, in reality the whole system works rather like a giant coravin, so the wine is kept in tip top condition, and they’ve a decent selection. Otherwise, there are craft beers a-plenty.
