The Hop Inn is everything you’d expect in a proper pub, and determined to make it work through Covid restrictions. There are always sixteen beers on tap, wines and spirits (a lot of gins), bar snacks, and teas and coffees. Our sister pub, The Little Hop, is now a showcase for the beers and gifts we’ll deliver to your door, including Hop Beer Tokens, gift packs of selected canned, niche beers, and Hop tea towels, posters and t-shirts.

Today’s Beer

8 cask ales and 8 keg beers on tap everyday

Think of us as an on-going beer festival. There’s an ever-changing selection of 12 guest brews – stouts, sours, bitters, IPAs, wheat beers, saisons and pale ales, and 4 permanent favourites – our self-named Hop Bitter by Ramsbury Brewery, Freedom’s lager and pale ale, and Weihenstephaner Bavarian wheat beer.

We’re west-country folk so can’t forget the cider – there are always 2 still guest ciders, and 2 on draft, AND we have around 30 niche, craft ales in cans (mostly with groovy can designs), AND bottled European beers.

Basically, you have the choice of around 60 real ales, craft beers, ciders and lagers every single day of your life. Most of our staff know their beer and breweries and are all too happy to guide you through the what’s on offer.

While the pub’s closed we’ll wet your whistle with home deliveries within a 5 mile radius. We’ll deliver all the gifts available in our online shop too.

We’ll let you know our 2021 opening hours as soon as we know when we can re-open.

Knowledgeable bar staff. Friendly ambience.
A great pub! An oasis in Swindon!

The Little Hop

Opened as a micro-pub years ago at No. 7 Devizes Road in Swindon, The Hop Inn was the first pub in Swindon to focus on craft beers. We moved two doors down in 2019 to 8 Devizes Road. Not a big move, but a bigger pub. No. 7 is now our
(imaginatively named) sister pub, The Little Hop.
