The Great Outdoors

The Hop Inn has a good-sized, beer garden. It’s marvellous in good weather, and great for anyone who’d rather enjoy a drink outdoors. We’ve got six 6-seat and two 4-seat ‘rainproof’ tables undercover – plus a further six tables.

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 current exhibition of photography is by Neil George; from July 25th Sue Bardwell’s mixed-media work will adorn our walls.  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.
