I’ve always just popped in for beer although there is a fully kitted kitchen/restaurant attached. I really like the spot but prefer to visit when it’s quieter as it does fill up quickly with punters. Fair ’nuff as the beer range is solid and again, i usually pick up something new. Staff are always great, esp the female bar tenders who are always bubbly and enthusiastic about the beers. Oddly located behind KFC off the main road. Well worth a look innit.

Not bad. Nice place with a nice atmosphere. Solid selection but nothing completely wows me. Service was slow but not too bad. Alright but doesn’t compare to some of the places in Wellington

Amidst the swelling of craft beer in bars around in Wellington, The Hop Garden offers something different...a great bar/restaurant that just has good beer as a matter of course. There is a maturity to that, which I like. Yes, some of the taps are more exciting than others, but there is plenty here to please the palate. And the food...just order the squid and you’ll know what I’m talking about. A haven from the madness of Courtenay Place. The type of place you wish was just a 5 minutes walk down the hill from home. And if thirtsystirrer doesn’t like it, then it is definitely a place I will...

Grape vines are hanging from the top. The sunlight is coming through the glass ceiling. Quite large space. As you walk in you’ll see the bar on the left hand side and high tables in the front. There’s dining space at the end and you can see the kitchen. The craft beers on tap are carefully selected and they have some imported bottle beers from America. The food is very tasty, European style.Reasonable price. The staff are experienced and they offer the great service. Good place to go for relaxing dinner and some craft beer.
