Large, modernised, stripped back pizza oven cum Restaurant cum pub on the improving Fossgate. There is a smallish frontage but huge place behind. The beers are from the Ossett stable of Breweries plus some guest beers from far and wide. It’s certainly worth a look even if the Pizza Restaurant feel is not condusive to drinking beer.

Just opposite to the Blue Bell in Fossgate in central York. An what a contrast to the Blue Bell! This one is a new, opened in late 2013, quite large modern place with a huge L-shaped dark teak bar near the entrance, and a pizzeria to the rear. It belongs to the Ossett chain which means that they offers cask ales from Fernandes, Rat, and Ossett in addition to a few guest ales on tap and cask. Nine hand-pumps plus two devoted to ciders. American and Belgian beers dominated the bottled menu. Service was polite. Quite alright to visit promoting and airy and clean impression, not so much charm though and a rather sterile atmosphere. A good idea would be to visit first the Blue Bell and then The Hop just to experience two very different British pubs, both good for drinking well-kept cask ales (visited 11.07.2014).
