The Great Outdoors

From 12 April 2021 you can book one of our six 6-seat, or two 4-seat, covered tables for 1.5 hours. There are a further seven ‘first-come, first served’ tables so that you can just turn up at the pub (just like the olden days!). 6 individuals, or 2 households, can share a table until these latest Covid restrictions are relaxed.

Art at the Hop Inn - Old Town, Swindon

Art is Life and Life is Art

Not really, beer is (but it is a great quote). To brighten up the pub, The Hop Inn’s walls are a gallery for local artists to display their work. The first exhibition of 2021 is by artists from the New View Art Room at local mental health charity, Ipsum. We take payment for art bought in the pub in cash. Keep updated on the exhibitions on our social media.

Team member Emily’s artwork adorns the walls from the kitchen to the garden doors – she also painted our ‘Soviet Muriel’ mural (poster copies are on sale); exhibitions by local artists in the front of the pub change every 6 weeks.

The 2021 art calendar is full but, if you’d like to exhibit at The Hop Inn next year, send a couple of photos of your work to [email protected].

Hop Art posters

An edition of three A2-size Hop posters, celebrating our beloved selection of wines, beers and lagers, have been printed. They’re on our walls – could also be on yours too for £10 each. On sale in the pub and here.
